    i definitely agree about the kills. but i was a little skeptical about
    the death-by-crow segment. i mean thats a fucking brutal way to torture somebody, but would it really kill them? i kind of doubt it. i suppose the addition of the extra rapist, as well as the shift in focus for the middle part of the film were attempts to separate this film from the original, which i applaud. The addition of the new character works really well, and while i'm not 100% sold on the shift in focus, i guess i understand what they were trying to do.

    Has anyone else seen the remake already out at their Best Buy for $15? Online they're selling it for $30 :)eek1:), but if anybody else can confirm they've seen it for $15 in-store, I'm just going to cancel my Amazon pre-order and buy it when I go to pick up my order for the original on Tuesday (my local store had the $9.99 signs up for it, but when I didn't see any and asked, the guy went to the back and then said it was a mistake and didn't release until 2/8).

    I think you missed the boat on the $15 sale. From what I was told, they were never supposed to be released last weekend, but came in on those racks with all the exclusive blu-rays and most stores didn't notice, then mixed up with the ad about the original but confused abouit prices, sold em for $14.99.

    I bought one for $14.99 Sunday, then by Tuesday they were pulled. When I asked about the original thinking it came out last Tuesday, I saw on the computer in store both were dated 2/08, the original will be on sale for $9.99 and the remake should be on sale for $19.99, if I saw what I thought I did on the screen.

    The closet thing to an ad was a piece of paper on the side of the bd rack saying "On Sale $9.99 - 14.99 each" then all the titles but nothing saying which title costs what ammount. Of course it meant the original, but with the remake discs already in the rack it confused some stores for a day or 2.

    Guess I should have went last weekend, but oh well, was waiting for the 'ol tax refund. I'll just keep my Amazon pre-order on it, $14.99 + tax from BB would make it next to the same price anyway. Was just looking for that instant gratification.

    Just picked the remake of this up on blu-ray yesterday at Wal-Mart for $15. Really planned on renting it first, but for that price, I thought I would take a chance. I liked it...don't think that it's one you could watch over and over again. To me it was like a combination of Last House on the Left, Hostel, and Saw.

    Picked it up on blu along with the Last House blu for 9.99 each. I also spotted the Maniac blu. It's nice to see Best Buy carrying these titles, usually I have to go to Hastings or order online.

    Don't know how hard these have been to find for others. But, the Skokie, IL BB has a few copies of LHotL inconveniently placed in one of their display cases. Figured I'd mention it in case anyone Chicagoland is having difficulty finding a copy.

    EDIT: Whoops - meant to put this in the LHotL thread.

    I was in Blockbuster last night, and this was funny as hell...

    This girl and her boyfriend come in asking for the '10 remake of I Spit. The dude working behind the counter says "nope, it's not even in theaters yet!" :rolleyes:

    I grabbed the DVD off the wall and handed it to him.

    That's one hell of a date rape movie. :nervous:

    I'm watching the '78 version on BD now.Its stunning, absolutely stunning,almost too good.The first night scene looks grainy but the daylight scenes look perfect.The audio on a regular flat screen sounds really odd,almost too beefy.

    I just saw the remake tonight. You know, I actually think it's a much better movie than the original. The one relative weakness may be that the kills are overly complicated in the new one (though they were also pretty contrived in the original), but the script, acting and filmmaking were all stronger. The remake is also less exploitative, which works better I think.

    I finally got around to watching the original last night and was blown away at the quality of the transfer. AB did a hell of a job on this disc!

    Yes they did. Anchor Bay has really turned things around (again) on Blu-ray.
