    Without a doubt, the best slasher film since the 80's. It gets brought down a notch for the ending, not because I didn't "get" it, but because another film that came out in 2003 nearly has the same type of twist, and it was odd seeing it again so soon. The film is awesome...seen it 5 times, once in a theatre full of horror fans, and they went nuts. Will probably see it AGAIN when it's released in general theatres, to see how the general public likes it.

    As for the film, the direction, the score, the tension...it's all fantastic. See it if you haven't :D

    I don't get it, why would you totally disregard an entire film solely on the basis that you disagree with how the director choose to end it.

    I havn't seen this yet, but have been highly anticipating doing so for quite some time. Even through the very divided reviews this movie rests high on my "to see list".

    Once I can be bothered to figure out the best disc out there, I'll give it a go. Until then, it's just another movie on the "I really shouold get that" list.

    because i felt like the guy was trying to pull one over on me. use me, if you will, as a pawn in his silly ending movie game. the end part made the begining part with the van guy not jive in my eyes. i suppose i could give it some credit for good blood and stuff but it's completely wasted on this
    i'm two people and one of me is a killer
    beater unoriginal plot stealing sucky movie.

    If anything that's one scene in the entire film that may or may not have made sense (still up for interpretation/debate as far as I’m concerned). There are plenty of good films that have at least one lapse in logic. Example Donnie Darko and Momento were both critically acclaimed but both contained a scene or two that got me scratching my head because they logically didn’t make sense.
     
  19. You don't have a choice up there for THIS WAS A GREAT REMAKE....cause I liked the way the film was shot and everything...plagiarism really just pisses me off.

    Compared to the other crap out there this is a classic, yeh the endings not the greatest but for the most part its entertaining as hell. Fulci's one of my favorite directors & god knows some of his movies make no sense.
