    Great thread!!:cool:

    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:

    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. ;)

    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

    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. :rolleyes: ;)

    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...
     
  19. Overrated: Henry:portrait of serial killer
    Underrated: Friday the 13th part 5
    Rituals
    Texas chainsaw massacre part 2
