The most horrific film ever, Sept. 23 2000
Some people say that "The Exorcist" is the most scary movie ever. Some say its "Jaws", then some say its Dan Quayle. Not for me. For me, its "Welcome to the Dollhouse". I had to see in a spaces. Part by part, scene by scene, because it was just to painful to watch. Never had any director put on screen so truthfully the pain, misery and loneliness that comes when you are bully. I know that personnally.
The story is about this geeky teen, played with natural charm by Matarazzo. She's tormented at school, ignored by here parents in favor of her "so cute you hate her" sister. She falls in love with this much older bum, makes a sort of friend from a bully who wants to rape her, etc. All her attempts to be accepted, to be recognized, backfires terribly.
In the story of this girl, director Todd Solondz really manages to show how a segrated society we have and how reputation and looks is more important then what you really are inside. And that is more scary than a shark or an alien.
