This is probably about the point where you begin to think that I'm clever for coming up with the idea of the "lazy baker" (that would be 11 donuts instead of 12 or 13), and wondering why I would apply a donut term that doesn't actually exist to a series of horror movie reviews. Well, it should come as a great surprise that, despite my relentless cleverness, I, in fact, did not conceive of this idea. It is the invention of one Jimmy Pardo, a damn funny comedian and host of the comedy podcast "Never Not Funny". Jimmy once lamented that his "lazy baker" concept never caught on, that he received looks of confusion and annoyance when attempting to order a lazy baker at his local donut shop.
Meanwhile, I refuse to let this concept die, imparting it on others with the hope that it will catch on and become a "thing". After all, a baker's dozen implies to me that the baker has been so busy making so many donuts that he is happy to throw in an extra one for his hungriest customers, where as the lazy baker can't be bothered to fill the minimum order of a dozen. This disparity, to me, is funny. This has nothing to do with movie reviews, but I look at it as a nice round set of ten with a bonus review thrown in for the loyal punters. You know, if you have to explain a joke in such naked detail, it's probably akin to that emperor who didn't wear any clothes, whatever the fuck his name was.
