    Hopefully, Dario will change that.

    This episode was pretty decent, but I liked all the previous ones (including the Argento one of course) maybe a touch more than this one. Not that it was bad... it's just that there has been such a high standard to live up to. :D

    The technique spoken of previously may have been part of it for me. The story itself was good, but I don't know... it just didn't grab me like the others have.

    I'm falling behind on this show. I have only seen the first one so far. I have 2 more on my tivo yet to be watched and I'll prob. end with with a few more before I even get started on this again. damn November sweeps and all the tv we watch and NO RERUNS. :(

    I didn't like this week's at all. I was all excited too. Hooper... Matheson... So far my favorite is the very first one, but next week's looks really promising!

    I'am just wondering how they come up with this stuff. Its a pretty crazy movie. I like the episode, but its pretty out there.

    P.S. I'm still jealous you saw the Agrento last week. After seeing the trailer(I wait until I see it on Showtime vs the internet) I can't wait. It looks like it could be the scariest so far out of the current episodes. I heard Weber is pretty good.

    KingJeff,

    I'm with you that I liked the first one best. I did enjoy this one though, and I loved the music and the fucked up feel to it. The cinematography has been strong in all of these, and I find they all look feature quality. All of them have been well acted, too. Oh, and a special mention to Robert Englund...that guy is just awesome in my book. :fire:

    I second that vote. If one were to come in to any of these episodes half way thru. They would think it was a full 90 minute plus movie.

    Has anyone found a place online to download the Hooper episode yet? It's strange that no one has seemed to post it in the last 24 hours.

    Hey, that's quite a cool wesite. I'm definitely looking forward to Carpenter's episode more than the rest. It reminds me a bit of In the Mouth of Madness, which I liked very much.

    try Emule. they have it.
     
  12. Yeah, I really wasn't all that crazy about this weeks episode. It wasn't horrible, it was just really predictable.

    Exactly, the more I've been thinking about it, the more I wasn't all that impressed with this week's. It wasn't totally bad or anything... just eh. I wanted to go a bit gentle when I first posted, to see if the idea of it would grow on me, but nope, it has not. Every other week I've been anxious to get here to post about my love for the series... not so this week. :eek:

    I don't know which one is coming up next week, but I hope it's a good one.
     
  14. According to previews, Dario Argento's Jenifer is up next week.

    Needless to say, i was again very impressed with Hooper's episode, great to see him direct good stuff after such a long trough...Argento's Jennifer will be the first episode i don't expect much from.

    PS: i just read an interview with Carpenter (who seems very happy with his episode), and maybe all of you know this already, but those who don't, Roger Corman backed away from the project cause his wife told him to, simple as that.

    Got it last night. :) Twice the file size of the other episodes, but it'll do.

    I agree. This one just didn't sit as well as I'd hope, as IGotNewShoes said, it was soooo predictable. Enjoyed it enough, but I think it was like an average "Tales From the Crypt" episode stretched out to an hour.

    Here's the order of the next episodes:

    Jenifer (nov. 18/19)
    Chocolate (nov. 25/26)
    Homecoming (dec. 2/3)
    Deer Woman (dec. 9/10)
    Cigarette Burns (dec. 16/17)
