Your Users Guide to Home Invasion - Courtesy of Paul and Peter
In three more weeks you'll finally be able to experience the insane thrill ride that is Funny Games. While not everyone, well, probably not that many of you at all, would even like Funny Games, it's a film that only the bravest individuals should consider watching to begin with. Our two home invaders, Paul and Peter, have put together a users guide to home invasion, a checklist of how to invade homes the right way. While we don't condone this activity (and please don't hold us accountable if this puts you in jail), this is a video you must watch, simply for the sake of scaring the hell out of yourself with what eventually takes place in Funny Games, due out in theaters on March 14th.
I caught a screening of Funny Games at Sundance in January and while I didn't love it to death, I thought it was the most insane and ridiculous movies I've seen it a while (read the review). The key is that it plays games with you, the audience, and it's a brave attempt at breaking the conventions of cinema in every single way. If you're really interested, I highly suggest you see it, simply for the experience more than anything. And in the meantime, use that video to teach yourself how to invade homes the right way.

Funny Games is both written and directed by Michael Haneke, a German filmmaker who also directed the cult horror hit Caché. The film is a shot-for-shot remake of Michael Haneke's 1997 film of the same name and is even directed by the same guy. This arrives in limited theaters starting on March 14th. The poster is featured below.
