When BWP came to theatres the hype was unbelievable. Adults, teens and even the elderly in my town were proclaiming what a great film it was...but I never went and saw it. Because usually, when there is hype that big, the film is either mainstream garbage, or the film is actually really good, but they hype ultimately diminishes ones enjoyment towards the film. So in either case, I opted to wait for video, when the hype was gone and it won a Razzie , and needless to say, I really enjoyed it. I found it extremely original, and in a time of gore and disclosing the killer, it was refreshing to see a movie where you don't see the killer, and don't really know much about 'it' either (a la Black Christmas). It was great to see a film focussed on sheer suspense and atmosphere rather than trying to scare with visuals. I just finished watching it again the other day, and I still enjoy it as much as I did when I first saw it!
