    Well I watched Art Of The Devil last night, and I wasn't blown away.
    More than anything else, I felt confused by this film. The movie is edited in a way that makes you wonder what is taking place, and when and where the hell are we? By the end I pretty much figured out what was supposed to be happening, but it's nearly impossible to care about any of the characters, because the script never gives them any time to develop.

    Now as far as the gore goes.....

    Not bad. A few nasty scenes keep your interest, most notably a room full of slithering, slimy who know's what (eels or snakes?), and plenty of vomiting blood.

    I can only recommend this movie to die-hard asian horror fans. There's so many more extreme asian films out there that are better than this.
    There is a part 2 and 3 to this series, and it's quite possible that they both improve upon the original (let's hope)
    5.5 / 10

    DVDPriceSearch.com's Best Listed Price: $11.98
    Our List Price At Work: $19.99
    Our Sale Price At Work (Corporate Mistake?): $7.99

    I Paid a Total Of: $5.59

    If this movie sucks, it won't be a big dent in my wallet... If you live near a Hastings and want to pick this up, I encourage you to do as it's listed at $7.99 sale price in the system, which is a big error.

    OK now here we go...

    ART OF THE DEVIL 2. Much, much better than the first part. Better characters, story, sound, and of course the most important part, GREAT GORE! There's plenty of nasty, inventive scenes, and although I was slightly confused, there's even a twist ending. My advice is forget about part 1 all together and just seek out AOTD2, which will definitely please Asian gorehounds. 8/10

    Among the best Thai horror flicks I've seen (granted, that's not many, and that's also counting The Eye, which was also a Hong Kong production)

    Pretty nasty like the trailers indicate...and a little confusing plot wise. But it also has that 80's feel of teenagers getting stalked one by one until the female lead survives.

    Like others have said, skip the first one (the only connection between the movies is the title anyway), but definitely pick this one up.

    thats funny. i went into hastings for the first time a few days ago. theres not one around me, but i had to go to Texas for business so i decided to go in. WOW, id definitely rather go there than places like Best buy. that place rocked! anyway, i saw this there for $8 (as you said). i blind bought it, but haven't watched it yet. sounds kinda cool tho, so ill have to give it a spin.
