->I met [Michael Myers] fifteen years ago. I was told there was nothing left. No reason, no, uh, conscience, no understanding and even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, of good or evil, right or wrong. I met this six year old child with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and the blackest eyes, the devil's eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach him and then another seven trying to keep him locked up because I realized that what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply... [[CompleteMonster evil]].

->A [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Kindred]] with low Humanity can put great effort into acting like a living person. He can force himself to breathe and remind himself to blink now and then... but he can't fake that subtle, unconscious dance of nonverbal interaction. Mortals soon pick up on this. They cannot consciously spot the problem, but their instincts tell them that something is very ''[[OhCrap wrong]]'' and they should ''get away''.

->While nothing in ''Tintin'' is quite as richly nightmarish as the waxen-faced corpse of Tom Hanks sauntering through ''WesternAnimation/ThePolarExpress'' or the kinky video game avatar of Angelina Jolie in ''WesternAnimation/{{Beowulf|2007}}'', it's still a bit eye-watering in places. Particularly in the beginning, before one has a chance to really get used to the sight of almost photorealistic people with comic book facial features, which we've never really had in the movies before, and Jesus Christ is it ever something the brain's not really equipped to deal with.

->Mac is one of the ugliest, most off-putting characters I have ever seen in a kid's movie. The armored rape goblin from the ''{{Film/Alien}}'' series is less terrifying than Mac and his sallow rubber plague mask. It isn't hard to make a movie about space that delights little children -- the only way to screw that up would be to film their parents putting on spacesuits and telling them they're getting a divorce. Or, apparently, making ''Film/MacAndMe.''

->To me, porcelain dolls seemed like something you only buy when you know you're going to die alone and the only revenge you have left on the world is forcing an unblinking phalanx of $400 toy children watch your corpse get hollowed out by dusty spiders... ''Collectible Doll Care'' taught me more than how long a grown man can sustain one [[BringMyBrownPants terrified pee]]. For example, did you know that giving your doll a haircut is important enough to take up 20% of a doll maintenance instructional video? I didn't. I didn't even know that doll hair ''grew''. And by the way, fuck you for that, sorcerers.

->To see the snowman is to dislike the snowman. It doesn't look like a snowman, anyway. It looks like a cheap snowman suit. When it moves, it doesn't glide -- it walks, but without feet, like it's creeping on its torso. It has anorexic tree limbs for arms, which spin through 360 degrees when it's throwing snowballs. It has a big, wide mouth that moves as if masticating Gummi Bears. And it's this kid's dad."

->[Calne Ca] looked disturbingly like Miku - but she wasn't disturbing because of who she looked like. The disturbance was because she didn't '''quite''' look like... a person at all - she was frighteningly close, yet imperfect enough to be eerie.
