Numba 23The Number 23 brings together a dream team in trash cinema: Joel Schumacher and Jim Carrey in a potentially apocalyptic horror combination. Now when you see the name Joel Schumacher, you don’t necessarily think horror: not that kind of horror anyway. Equally the same with Jim Carrey – the gurning horror of comedy is the closest we have got to a frightfest from him. But here they combine together to give us the horror of numerology: Carrey plays a man who becomes obsessed with the number 23. A scary prime if you will – as Wikipedias 23 numerology page suggests, but its still only a number. And that’s what age ain’t nuttin’ but…

The trailer gives away many of the films ridiculous plot twists, but my favourite is delivered in a rush of 23 facts is this:

“Two divided by Three is Point 666

The suggestion is that this makes 23 the number of beast by proxy. EXCEPT 2/3 DOES NOT EQUAL 0.666, and 0.6666666666666666666666666666(and so on) is clearly not the number of the beast, you’d never fit it on a little kiddies head for a start.
