Overrated: The Beyond and 28 Days Later
Lots of stuff covered so far, but here's what I think:
OVERRATED: I agree with those who say M. Night Shyamalan...although I though Unbreakable was decent. The other two I can't stand, and he as a director, I despise.
some of the following are ovverated not so much in general, but on these and other forums.
also OVERRATED: The Others Halloween III: Season of the Witch , Day of the Dead, Prince of Darkness , Below, The Blair Witch Project, Dr. Giggles.
Here's a pile of underrated stuff...couldn't pick just one.
OVERLOOKED: John Carpenter's Christine Amazing movie!! One of the coolest King adapts IMO. Demons an inspired little treat. Dagon It's brilliant! Anguish I love this film. Tenebrae and Sleepless...I'm not sure which Argento I love more. The Dentist and Society Brian Yuzna rules! Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning I agree with those who think this was a good rebirth for the series. Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 I don't even own the original. Nightmare City Cheesy but it works damn well. When a Stranger Calls Back That first scene is what it''s all about...and you get to see Jill Schoelen, bonus! From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money and From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter Fun for what they are...solid entertainment with great pacing. Fascination Jean Rollin mind warp worth checking out. Creepshow 2 Some great stories, especially "The Raft". Maximum Overdrive I love this flick! It just kicks fucking ass all over the place and its a great party movie. Razor Blade Smile Decent vampire quickie, has some cool surprises. Body Snatchers Abel Ferrara remake is the most cerebral version yet. :evil: :glasses:
Over-rated - Threads about people's favorite or least favorite movie!!!
Under-rated - white underwear, breasts etc!
Underrated (by mainstream standards): Day of the Dead-- I agree with the person (sorry, can't remember who) who said this was a beautiful horror film, it really is striking, and I can't praise Joe Pilato enough!
Overrated: Blair Witch Project-- can't remember if I mentioned it before, but what the hell, I despise this film.
Over rated: Halloween :nervous: (I like it and have respect for it but I just feel it is way too over rated)
Under rated: The Funhouse and Don't Go in the House:nervous:
I would have to disagree with Halloween being over rated.
Halloween is good but I also agree about the overrated part. Really though, there is nothing wrong with the movie, it's just not the greatest slasher ever made.
I will agree with HALLOWEEN, even though I still greatly enjoy it.
Underrated- HELL NIGHT
OVERRATED- SLEEPAWAY CAMP on just about every level.
Y'all can kiss m' pee pee, re. Hallowen!
Erm, I dunno about OVERrated... I guess it is among the large cult following, the way they think it is the best movie ever made, but it's not overrated among the mainstream, I don't think.
Underrated-EXORCIST II: THE HERETIC
Come on, great plot, some creepy scenes (with a creepier Regan) and one bitchin soundtrack!
Its that cult following that I was referring to. I honestly have not heard anything about this movie outside of this following. Maybe that says a lot. I don't know. I've never been able to take much of this movie. I'm to this day not sure what the merits are of this movie. I won't begrudge anyone for loving it, though.
Just because it's overrated, doesn't make it an all too bad flick, correct? I feel that Sleepaway Camp is way overrated but I enjoy them. Each movie gives you something (even if it's a headache) and it's about how much it gives that entails it to be over or underrated.
I'm sorry, but I have to say (once again) that this movie sucks majorly. But then again, you like every movie you see.
I made a thread called "DVD Letdowns" check it out. Maybe you'll see why the EXORCIST II was a letdown for so many.
Most overrated= The Omen (that movie was butt-ass boring) Day of the Dead (not that I don't like this movie, it's good, but not as good as dawn or night) Texas Chainsaw Massacre (Again, I like this movie, a lot actually, but it isn't "piss your pants scary" as I once heard it described) Any steven king movie (the movies always start out good, but the endings are dumb)
Most Underrated= F13 part 8 (so it isn't at camp crystal lake, you already have seven movies if you want that!) I can't think of any more, but there are more...
Overrated: Henryortrait of serial killer
Underrated: Friday the 13th part 5
Texas chainsaw massacre part 2
Most Overrated : Every Friday The 13th movies
Most Underrated : Movies that does not spawn a bunch of useless sequels are underrated.
