I wish I didn’t see this movie…

I really do… Actually I want to get my hour back of my life that I lost while watching this, but I’ll get back to that a little later on…

The movie that I am going to review today is called See Dick Run. It was released in 2009 and is a comedy starring Kel Mitchell.

Kel plays the role of Richard Jones, a fast talking guy that has pulled his game of telling lies to get his way with lots of women in his past.

But after meeting one really sexy girl, he discovers that something is missing from his life… His “dick”.

Eventually, he sees a Voodoo Priestess that tells him that someone in his past placed a curse on him and he has only until midnight that day to apologize for his past actions in order to set things right, and reverse the hex on him. But the question for him is, which of the literally dozens of women that have a grude against him did this and why?

The following is a trailer on YouTube for the movie:

And in case the embedding doesn’t work:

If you pay attention to the trailer, you will notice two scenes in this movie. One has the point in it where the shot turns green and Richard gets assaulted by his hot date. The other scene is where the Voodoo Priestess reveals that he was attacked by a Succubus summoned to be used against him. This next video is the first scene as played out in the movie that shows the Succubus that steals his manhood…

A couple of things that I like and dislike about the Succubus in this film, I’m not going to really review the rest of this movie, you can get that in a lot of other places and really that isn’t the focus of my site anyway… I didn’t really like all the humor in it, and I found myself fast-forwarding through a lot of it. ((The repeated scenes of seeing that something was missing did so on a lil long)). There are only a few places that we see the Succubus, and so that’s what I am going to concentrate on.

The Succubus is played by Heidi Marie Wanser, the image to the left is her in the movie at one point in the first scene she appears.

She’s really very beautiful, and this screenshot doesn’t do her justice to be honest. You can find out more about her at the IMDb here.

She makes for a deliciously sexy, seductive and evil succubus when she first appears. I like the way she moves and taunts her prey in the movie as well… The striptease she performs is wonderful and I love the boots she’s wearing as part of her outfit. I just wish that they had done more with her in the movie because, really, I think her character is wasted for the most part in the movie after the first scene she appears in.

But then, that scene has some real issues for Succubus lovers… After she gets close to Richard then the scene moves towards all green lighting and it goes downhill from there for me.

That scene, as shown above in the second YouTube link, just isn’t as sexy as it could have been. i know that this is a comedy and was rated for general audiences, but when the scene consists of Richard getting thrown around by a screaming woman…

Well.

That isn’t close to being Succubus-like to me.

Ignoring the green scene, and just looking at the rest of her appearances, I give the Succubus in this movie 3 pitchforks out of 5. But as a whole, that drops to 2.5 out of 5 looking at the actual Succubus attack they show.

I don’t like all comedies, didn’t like this one a lot, but honestly…

She could have been amazing…

Little note… The writer Dwayne Smith left a comment here about this post and I want to thank him again for taking the time to visit and give his opinion here…

*huggles*

Thank you again!

    As usual, Majesty, I think you are a wee bit too generous in your ratings. They take a brilliant, promising set up and turned it into a joke. *sighing*

    Hi,
    I’m the writer and director of See Dick Run.
    I’ll be the first to admit the movie is low budget and rough around the edges.
    But taking into consideration that we made it for practically nothing… I’m very
    proud of the results. And judging by sales here and now in Europe I think audiences
    are enjoying it as well.

    As a fellow Succubus lover I ask you guys to remember that See Dick Run is a comedy not erotica or a sexy thriller.
    Maybe you guys should try to be a little more opened minded about how Succubi are viewed in movies. Do they always have to be taken so seriously?

    By the way, I love the blog.

    First, I do want to thank you for visiting here and commenting Mr. Smith… I enjoyed the movie itself, I admit I wasn’t exactly clear on that point in my comments…

    What bothers me in a lot of the appearances of Succubi in films more than anything else, is that the seductive aspects of them are overshadowed by blood, gore or, and this is the most common thing, they are confused with vampires and thus instead of being creatures of sexuality, became blood sucking undead creatures…

    Which they aren’t…

    My bias thus is reflected in my comments in that way, and I will be honest that does color my opinions… Should really watch that to be honest…

    As a comedy, yes, it is funny and witty and I admit that I was laughing through it, but then she appears in the story and my thoughts turn to wondering if our succubus couldn’t have been a little more… interesting? seductive?

    I know that as a comedy there are moments when things go over the top, that is expected after all, I just dislike seeing a succubus becoming violent when really she doesn’t need to be…

    Nonetheless, I have a copy of your film in our Succubi movie collection and as a Saturday night popcorn movie it does fill that role really well…

    As for taking Succubi too seriously, I again admit that I do that, that has a lot to do with my real life husband and how we met and what Succubi mean to us….

    I know that I will never likely see the perfect movie about a Succubus, that is just how things are, but I can hope that at some point there is a movie that has the three things I’d love to see in a Succubus done well…

    Horns, Tail, and a Succubus personality…

    Wishing you love, prosperity and all of your dreams to be true….

    Tera
