    I wasn't really a big fan of this movie. The guy who played Leslie was quite good, but nearly all of the other actors fell flat. An interesting concept, but it took too long to build up and I got bored.

    After all the hype that this film got, I picked it up and watched it. And I found it highly over-rated. I felt like I got ripped off. I perfer "Man Bites Dog"

    Some say its part Blair Witch part Scream. Going with that notion, the Blair Witch part was entertaining, the scream part pretty much sucked, which is only the last 20 minutes or so of the film so its not all that bad.

    I checked this out from the library and it turned it off after 25 minutes. It just didn't hold my interest.

    I just watched it last night. I thought it was ok, but not great. Maybe I'm just not into the whole documentary about a killer thing, I had the same reaction to Man Bites Dog.

    I just finished watching this one (finally!!!). I had just put it in to check something out about the DVD and ended up getting sucked into the movie. Just great! I liked Leslie and the film crew, thought they really made it work for me. Also great to see Angela Goethals in this. I don't know what she's done since Phenom but I'm glad to see she's getting some work and doing a great job.

    I agree- I loved this movie- very funny and smart and then changes course a bit for a great (while predictable) ending

    I finally watched this, since I got a cheap copy. I felt like that myself. The first part was boring and stupid though I was a bit intrigued. The movie ended predictably. I figured all of it out pretty quickly and it was just an average horror film. I really don't know why everyone raved about this film. It wasn't great. And, even though I saw it on the cover and knew about it, the mask looked so stupid, it was hard to get into the character! Another example of a film that got rave reviews by everyone and was way too overhyped!! I was afraid I'd have that reaction to it. Not a bad film, but I guess I was expecting way too much!
     
  13. If you expect too much, you'll be disappointed constantly! Anyhow, I actually enjoyed this movie. Good stuff.
