Kim Basinger Will Shank You, Bitches

Despite the incredibly unassuming title of Kim Basinger’s latest movie, “While She Was Out”, get ready to watch the former Mrs. Alec Baldwin get abused by her husband (inside joke there, perhaps?), fail to find a parking space at the local strip mall, get harassed by a bunch of would-be toughs with a gun and psycopathic tendencies, and then, and then, just when things start to get really bad, our suburban housewife decides it’s time to take out the trash. And of course by “trash” I mean she shanks some dudes with a knife, a tire iron, and just for laughs, a gun. If this trailer for “While She was Out” tells us anything, it’s that you don’t push around unassuming suburban housewives. Or, actually you could, but it’s gonna cost you.

A suburban housewife is forced to fend for herself when she becomes stranded in a desolate forest with four murderous thugs. What starts off as a quick trip to the mall ends in the woods with a fight for her life. All she has is a toolbox and her will to survive.

According to the trailer, there’s also something else in that toolbox besides, you know, tools. Yikes. Do NOT cross Kim Basinger!

Starring Kim Basinger, Lukas Haas, Jamie Starr, Leonard Wu, Luis Chávez, and Craig Sheffer. Susan Montford directs.

She comes out just in time for a limited release on December 12, 2008. The movie is already out on DVD overseas.
