This is the type of show that you gotta not think too much or forget somethings you see
30 May 2019 | by ertpecsSee all my reviews

Like seriously, you're worried about some monkey carcasses thawing out on a drive, while you're in a parking lot of a store with ice machines outside. Now maybe I'm a genius but I think that if I needed to keep them frozen that I would get at least a few bags of said ice, but no, they just put them in the trunk and say f it. And then she tells him that he's gotta follow her and watch for drips. Now I know it's a 25 year old Oldsmobile hunk of junk so maybe the trunk is rusted out or something, but a cars trunk is sealed up so if somethings leaking on the inside its not gonna come out unless you pull the plug(s) out of the spare tire well. And when it does start leaking in the episode the blood starts coming out from under the trunk lid and above the bumper. So that means the blood defied gravity cause instead of leaking on the floor and under the spare tire it leaked up, up the rear body panel, past the weatherstripping that seals the trunk good enough to keep water and air leaks out and only then did gravity start taking effect when the blood starts going down the bumper. So not only it defied gravity apparently the weatherstrip only works on water and stuff but not on blood, blood will go right by it. And that's only the first 2 minutes of this episode, I'm probably gonna have to come back here and edit this once it's over
