    Has anyone here heard of, and is anticipating this movie as much as I am? I am not quite sure you can classify it as horror, but it def. has horrifying scenes. If you haven’t heard of it yet, here is the rundown:

    Hard Candy premiered at the Sundance FF in Jan 2005. It's probably one of the most controversial movies that was shown there. Basically it's about a girl who agrees to meet a man she is talking to online. The guy is in his 30s and is a photographer. She then suggests to go to his place. Once there, well things happen to him, but I won't say what. She believes he has something to do with the disappearance of a girl.

    Anyway, Lions Gate owns the theatrical rights to this movie. They had a date for December 23, but now its TBA 2006. I personally can't wait. The people who liked this, really liked it. The people who didn't, are basically the same people who don't like movies like SAW because they are too violent. Check out the official site- HardCandymovie.com

    Just wanted to reply to this because the Hard Candy trailer debuted in front of Hostel and is supposively pretty great. If you saw it post your thoughts here. I didn't get to see Hostel yet and will probably have to wait until Friday at the latest. I was eagerly awaiting Hostel and ready to see it opening night. Then I was eagerly awating the following week. Now I read about one of my most anticipated movies having it's trailer in front of Hostel and I am more or so having a mental breakdown for having to wait so long to see it.

    Sounds really intriguing. I saw "Hostel" last night, but no trailer for this was with it.

    I thought Saw was the film that Boll didn't get a chance to direct. It was that fucking stupid. Silly, yes. Horrifying, no.

    Will this Hard Candy actually have a plot or just attempt to be clever?

    My point about Saw was how it actually wasnt that bad and neither is this movie really as far as violence goes. Yes this movie has a plot. Did you not read my first post? Girl beleives this guy has something to do with her bestfriends dissapearance. She meets him. Goes to his place. Uh oh shes crazy and shes going to beat the shit out of him. From what i have read the actress who plays the girl does an amazing job. She will be playing Shadowcat in the upcoming X-men III. If this story isn't original(although a little unbeleivable) I don't know what is. Arrow in the Head gave it a good review if you want to go read that.

    I'm really excited about this one, its been getting some great reviews. I was taken back by the release date mix-up though, as I was planning to see it when I was in the US during that time, but now since it didnt show up I probably wont have a chance to see it theatrically unless its given a larger release and makes it's way to Canada. In any case I'll probably buy the dvd blind anyways since it sounds quite interesting.

    The trailer for "Hard Candy" was pretty suspensful, and its critically acclaimed. Reminded me of 'One hour photo'

    Sounds like a good movie. I like the premise of a child molester getting his just desserts.

    What are the "surprising consequences"? I like a spoiler or two. I am cool with it ;)

    Also where can I view this trailer?

    Holy crap! I was watching the trailer and I knew the girl looked familiar, then I imdb'd the flick and like maskull posted above, it's Ellen Page. And guess what! I did extra work in a movie that she was in back in 2001 called I Downloaded A Ghost! Crazy!
