TC3D just really reminded me of a fun low rent sequel from the good old days before they were part of a polished, calculated studio machine. Up to this film I honestly wasn't much of a fan of the TCM series. Whereas other film series like Elm Street, Friday, Hellraiser and Halloween all really evolved from their first film, TCM was always a series that really just rested on the laurels of the first film and never really brought anything to the series that couldn't be explained by the iconic title. I thought this one had some fun with it and tried something fresh (I guess it is no surprise that it comes from the writer of Jason Goes to Hell, another unpolished, but inventive mess of a movie). Lots of fun scares, even more unintentional laughs, and a batshit finale. Fun all the way through, what a pleasant surprise overall. Don't pay the extra for 3D though, it's hardly used well (although it is kind of cool to see the footage of the original film post-converted into 3D at the start).

Again though, if the phrase "The HALLOWEEN 5 of TCM" means anything to you, you're going to like this movie.
Spoiler:
Do your thing, cuz!
hmmmm i wonder if the reason the TCM 40th anniversary blu-ray that warner was supposed to release in oct 2012 then vanished is because they are going to do the whole 74 film in 3D???

Are there any prescriptions you've been needing to get refilled recently?

Yeah, sure- you're the one who thinks it's the 80's again. That's clearly reasonable.

...

You first say that I shouldn't compare F13 VIII to TC3D, but come back with a rude response when I do the same thing you do...

It's the 80s again in the sense of the electronic music and the nostalgia seeping into media. But other than that, I don't know what you're talking about...

Seeing it tuesday. Rhett's and others positive comments give me hope this will be at least dumb fun (I'm also a fan of Halloween 5).

My hopes are back up after hearing that it's at least fun. Probably have to watch it on dvd though seeing as there's no word of this coming to Aussie theaters.

It's all about the visuals, fancy editing, and now 3D gimmickry that enhances the film in absolutely zero ways. Eye candy, nothing more. I'll always prefer low-rent production values and slow-burn storytelling over 40 million dollars worth of gimmicks.
How are things like this that different from the Saw series (now about 9 years old) and every single post mid-90's remake (going back as far as William Malone's 1999 remake of House on Haunted Hill)?

Otherwise: astute observations. Though, honestly? Good luck telling the low budget much apart from the "big budget." Except for, maybe, picture quality.

That climax scene with Heather's shirt hanging open was a cop-out. You'd expect to see her nipples popping out, but apparently Ms. Daddario's shirt was taped to her chest. Those bad boys deserved some screentime.

They were too big...no shirt could ever fully hold them.

Oh yeah. It could've used some T&A... considering the crappy gore content. And the script could've used a good page one rewrite... it was all over the place.

I liked where the ending was coming from, but it feels half-assed, edited to hell and reshot at the studio's request.

Yea I'm pretty sure I read somewhere on Bloody Disgusting that the film got sent to the MPAA a few times because they kept getting an NC-17 rating. If this is true then I assume the dvd/blu release will be a lot bloodier.
