    :bowdown: fucking :bowdown: watched this last night and i was completely caught off guard. i knew nothing about it going in but by the end... oh man... it was fucking brilliant. if you haven't seen it... do it now.

    it isn't scary, in fact it barely has a creep factor at all... but for fans of movies like rosemary's baby, the exorcist, evil dead, halloween, friday the 13th, carrie, sleepaway camp, etc... you know... the staples of 70's and 80's horror, this is the fucking flick you have to see.

    the acting is perfect (for 70/80s standards of campy horror), the cinematography is fucking beautiful, the story is ludicrous and unreal, but in a wicked 80's. i'm giving it a big thumbs up.

    joe i know you'll dig it for sure. if not you're not the man i thought you were.

    By this, he means don't expect something it's not. It's got a creepy atmosphere, lots of buildup, lots of character development, and very little action. It's a brilliant throwback to the old horror movies.

    It's pretty much all build up. Amazing foreplay, but the orgasm wasn't worth mentioning.

    Zero is correct. I just got finished watching this flick, and I enjoyed it. The cinematography was awesome, especially during the pool scene.

    The "Are you not the babysitter?" scene was fucking awesome. I was caught off guard when that happened. I mean, I saw something coming but wasn't ready for all of that.

    fuckinorite! that fucker came outta nowhere. but that's what 80's cinema was about... start off with some chick wanting to move into a new place... set up what could have been a brilliant landlady... cut to college... pizza.... aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannd...... BANG! WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT THING WITH THE GOAT SKULL!? i fucking loved her friend though, the blond... what's her name again? oh yeah... the shark from jaws. if i had the opportunity to remake jaws she would be my shark. fuck affleck. that chick was awesome.

    The main girl was great as just a college girl who wants to make some extra money babysitting. I know it's not an oscar-winning role, but she seemed natural and fresh. Not like a girl pretending to be a college girl who watned to earn some extra money.

    If that makes sense.

    All you have to do is replace that pizza with Quint's legs and bam, legitimate remake. :rofl:

    Ti West (I believe he was the writer/director) did a great job. He was thorough with his portrayal of 70's/80's horror. I actually saw people smoking cigarettes in horror movies again. The blonde, and a guy in the background, were even smoking in the pizza joint. Now-a-days that shit's illegal, but in the 70's and 80's it was allowed. Yes, I paid that much attention to detail. The credits made me laugh, as well. Ugly yellow blocks of text on top of still images. Pure gold.

    She reminded me somewhat of Margot Kidder's character in Black Christmas.

    Saw this movie a few days ago. The movie itself was just rediculously terrible. If I want to watch a fun 80's horror flick I'll watch Return of the Living Dead or Evil Dead, not this all-too-cheesy remake. The incredibly hot actress in it made it worth watching from start to finish though, she looked especially hot towards the end when she was covered in blood. The amazingly hot girl starring in the film was the only thing that made this movie worth watching.

    I enjoyed Drag Me To Hell a lot more as a cheesy B-horror movie, mainly because it actually had horror, gross-outs, and a little more comedy in it than just a few cheesy one-liners unlike this movie in which the whole time you're watching that sexy little bitch wandering around the house hoping for either a shower scene or something outrageous to happen only to see a little taste of horror during the last five minutes of the movie.

    yeah but this isn't about watching a fun 80's horror flick... it's about going back to a time when movies were shitty and acting was usually terrible. it's about remembering where we came from.
