Absolute guff. Avoid
in which they interview the audience in the TV advert ever been anything other than unmitigated shite?
By saying it's well worth seeing. Scary without being obvious. A good horror film.
but there was a definite shock factor near the end and turned out to be okay. I'd give it a 7.5/10 for effect.
I don't like the fact it's set to the confines of a house though
I showed The Blair Witch Project to my housemate last night. He said it was shite as there was no 'slashing' and you didn't see a witch. Is this a film he would hate? If so, I might check it out.
it was a weird one. it was quite creepy, with the banging and stuff, but really wasn't scary.
i think the 'scariest' bits were actually when they found the photo, and maybe when she was just stood staring at the bed - these were more creepy than scary though i think.
annoyed that the biggest jump in the whole film is in the fucking trailer.
and i thought that the end shot was a bit crap. given the rest of the film was all shadows and noises. was just a bit of a cheap shot.
i really liked Blair Witch and it scared the shit out of me. this is nowhere near that. nowhere near as tense.
i was thinking though, i think it would be creepier watched on dvd in your own home rather than in the cinema.
And it just didn't really cut it.
I spent the whole film with this anxious feeling of foreboding like "Oh god, why is this happening?", but it never delivers on that.
There's no sustained pressure on you the viewer. WAY too much faffing around in the day, and only one scary thing happens per night. Oh, five minutes to watch a door creak a bit. I thought it was all going to take place over one night. If it had done that and been half an hour shorter it probably would've been really scary. As is, meh.
Oh and the guy is the most annoying person ever. Posturing to an invisible demon as if it's a bloke in a bar leering at his girlfriend. Should we call the demon expert? No, I'm just going to keep threatening it with violence. Douche
at home and yes I would defnitely call it "creepy" rather than "scary."
which sounds a lot better than the cinema effort.
the one in the cinema is where she goes downstairs, screams, he runs down, screams, then his body gets thrown up against the camera, she follows, is obviously possessed, sniffs his body in an animalistic manner, smiles at the camera and then grossish evil face flies into the camera. crap.
the she comes upstairs, sits down next to the bed and just rocks for hours and hours, then someone arrives at the front door (her mate I think) screams and buggers off. Then two coppers come round, they come upstairs and she is sort of vacant, walks towards them with a knife in her hand and POW they shoot and kill her.
to see. Its like having a button that says do not touch or you will blow something up. I would undoubtedly press it.
Maybe we can sort out a bit of Total Recall brain wiping for you.
Will still have to tell the wife its a Romcom though or she'll flatly refuse. Maybe I could tell her Ricky Whittle from Lollyoaks is in it as well..
Tedious, annoying and boring for all but the last five minutes of the movie when it was mildly scary. The guy in it is a complete dick as well. I have no idea why it's getting such good reviews.
