You're right RyanPC, there is something about the atmosphere that made the movie some what memorable. I aslo remember that scene with the blind girl walking around in a dark room and you catch our favorite cannibal in the corner as a lightning bolt flashes. That always kinda creeped me out. And you are also right about gore. But while it doesn't always make a movie better, gore could ONLY make the Grim Reaper version I saw better!
