    Though I didn't think it was a perfect film I thought it really had some moments of genius in it. It really showed the frustration of the situation perfectly to the point that I was physically affected by what was going on. Michael Haneke's Funny Games.

    This is one of the most unsettling films I've ever seen and I found it so disturbing that I have to admit that I don't think I can willingly watch it again. It takes the horror/thriller genre and turns it on its head, involving the viewer in a very uncomfortable way indeed. There's little onscreen gore but it's the psychological terrorising of the characters and the audience that's really chillingly effective. Even thought I can't say I'd casually recommend this film to anyone, I give it full marks-10.

    I haven't seen this one in several years, but it was mighty disturbing from what I do recall. 8.

    I wish I could say I've seen this film, but still have yet to check it out. It's definately on my list, I've heard good and bad things about this movie, but I feel it needs to be a part of my DVD library. In due time...

    Violent revenge flicks inspired QT, now it's come back around full circle. Not very interesting or shocking or clever--though it thinks that it is. Did Guy Ritchie direct this crap?
    If the "surprise" in this film doesn't make you roll your eyes, you're already asleep.

    Haneke is terrific, this film is a shocker.

    I could have sworn I gave this a one, but yet, it shows I gave it a two. I certainly don't think it is two material. I must not have had my contacts on or something.

    Looking at those votes. It looks like this is just a case of the few of you who gave it a low score are talking the loudest.

    Well, it's not like there is a HUGE mass of folks laying down the high marks either.

    Either way, a poll at horrordvds doesn't make the movie any less terrible.

    Take it for what you will but it also has a high 7.4 score on the IMDB.

    Well, if IMDB says it, it has to be true.

    I'm not exactly an IMDB expert or anything, but is there a way to search for other films with a 7.4??? I'd be interested in seeing to what else the people who frequent the site gave such an above-average score. Of course, after reading a lot of the posts I am sure I won't be too surprised.

    They have a top 50 rated horror film section, just go top 250 at the bottom and then pick horror on the side where it says votes by genre. You can also do a power search by clicking more searches and then power search. I find there quite a few idiots on there but on the whole it's a pretty good resource.

    Cool. Thanks for the tip. I enjoyed the Bottom 100 a little more though. :p
