I can't understand why many people disliked this movie. It was a nice, but not brilliant movie. What it is, is a horror movie with horror in it. For that it deserves to be applauded, though I wouldn't want to see it again. It's not a masterpiece, but it's not so bad that I hate it. The acting is good, and the special effects are nice. The story is really good, but not great. You have to pay attention to the storyline, and even if you do, you'll probably not find it very profound. I won't give any spoilers. The only thing I think that could be improved is the ending, where the camera focuses on the villains face for a moment, and it goes black. For me, that would have been good. This could have been a good movie if the story was not so subtle. I did not like the characters, but not so much that I hated them. I do like how they all look like each other, but I think that it would have been more believable if they had different voices, because they do not. As a whole, I liked it, but not a great film, just a good one. It's worth the watch, but not as good as I would have liked it to be.

This is definitely not a typical B movie. The plot is clever and the acting is superb. The "swashbuckling" between the children, the predator (played by an excellent Christopher Lee, who will likely win an oscar in this category) and the good guys is very intense. It is very clear that the script writers did not want to just put in monster shots to appeal to the uninitiated viewer. They tried to incorporate a lot of moral, political, social and religious messages into the plot. The first part of the movie is very suspenseful, especially the scenes of the monster, and the kid gets scared when he sees the monster. I won't give too much away, but all in all, I would recommend this movie to any monster movie fans, because there is a lot of action and some very fine acting. This movie was released in 1989, so this movie is quite a while before "Vampire Diaries" and "Supernatural" were released, but this movie is a very good example of the kind of monster movies that made monster movies popular. It is rare to see this kind of movie, but this is a must see. If you are a horror movie fan, then I highly recommend that you see this movie.

I have watched many horror films but this is by far my favorite. I have watched many other horror films and they are all great but this one is my favorite. It is a good mix of horror and comedy. I would recommend it to anyone who likes horror and comedy. I give it an 8 out of 10.

My all time favorite horror movie. Every single character you can feel for, I think I cried watching this movie. This movie was so good and even has a good ending. Even with all the crap that has been shown in recent years. Even today I can still remember when I was little and I would sit in the back row and scream my lungs out and jump out of my seat every time someone screams. It was just a really good movie. I will never get bored watching this movie. I also love the special effects and the makeup. They really look like they were real. I think this movie is underrated and will be around forever. It's a must see.

Finally a movie that can say it's a sequel and not just a re-release. I'm glad to see that a few films are being made that have so much more to offer than the originals. This one will have you thinking twice before making the jump to your local video store. I love this movie and would gladly pay full price to see it again. To sum it up, there is no better sequel than this one.

I can't believe that this film has such a low rating on IMDb. I thought it was brilliant. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who likes horror and/or sci-fi.

The movie was not as bad as i thought it was going to be, and I found the acting quite good for a cheapie. This movie is still good to watch at least once in my opinion, not the best movie ever, but its close. Some of the effects used are nice and well done, and the actors did their parts well enough. The story had its problems, and the character development could have been better. I would still recommend this movie to fans of the horror genre, but it could have been so much better.

I liked it. The clowns, the killer clowns, the music, the effects, the soundtrack, and the feel of the movie. I also liked the nudity. Well, except for the dildo thingy. I still really like this movie, because it is a good movie, not a great one. This one is definitely one of the better Halloween movies, and it also deserves a better rating than 6.5!

It would be interesting to examine the second part of the movie. The idea was a little too cheap and comical for me, but there are some genuinely scary scenes. And I really do like the pretty girl, I'm surprised she was not given more screen time. Anyway, I really recommend it to anyone who wants a good horror movie with a good story. My rating: 7/10.

First of all, I'd like to say that I am a huge fan of the first film, and the sequel. I would have given the film a 9, but after watching the prequel, I found that I still enjoyed this one. As a side note, the fact that my biggest complaint is with the main antagonist. (You know the guy who's the one who commits suicide, by the way, but I can't name any one who fits that description.) I know what you're saying: This is not a film for the most common kind of people. But I guess we can't all be in the same league, and that's what the creators want to show us, although they're going to make sure that the audience has a choice in what they want to see. If you have a decent imagination and are not easily offended, you'll probably like this film. But if you're easily offended, and you expect the films to be perfectly rational and plausible, you'll probably hate this one. It's really like a mix of "The Thing" and "Final Destination". I am the type of person that likes really scary films and really clever film-making. I have just one complaint: The protagonist character. No, not the guy from the first film, the one who gets sent back in time. The protagonist is the one who doesn't know what is happening in the future, and he has to save himself, and his girlfriend from dying in the present, or else he'll die in the future, and nobody knows where he is. The protagonist is supposed to be smart, but he is at least half of the time, and if he's not smart, he can still save his girlfriend. The problem with that is that he doesn't have the brains that would be required. In the original film, the antagonist had the brains and the self-control. He didn't know what was happening, but he was able to save his girlfriend and himself. In this film, the protagonist can't save his girlfriend, but he can save himself. And if he doesn't succeed, he dies in the future, and nobody knows where he is. If you don't know who the protagonist is, I guess that the audience does not know either. As a film-maker, I really appreciate the effort that they have put in this one, but in the end, I can't see it being worth all the effort. As a horror film, I have to

This movie is the best in the "found footage" genre. I loved it. I bought it on VHS, and watched it twice on a Sunday afternoon. I bought it again the next day for an anniversary gift, and just recently watched it again. I'm not going to make the list of greatest movies, but I give this movie a strong rating of 10. I think it's the most underrated movie ever. The characters are pretty much the most believable in a horror movie. The story is very creative, and I thought the actors did a great job with the characters. The story is actually very interesting, and probably the best thing about the movie. I highly recommend this movie to any horror movie fan. It's good entertainment.

As we can see from the title of this comment, "Children's Play" is an incredibly weird movie. It is a horror movie, but even more than that, it is a science fiction movie. The title of this movie tells us that this is the film that started a science fiction franchise. But what this film is about is more like a horror movie. It starts with a young girl named Lauren (Alison Lohman) having the misfortune of being kidnapped by her friend, the person who kidnapped her, and have him work on her. So the person who kidnapped her decides to take on the idea of being a research on the latest invention in the industry, a mecha called the G-Box. They begin testing it and eventually modify the G-Box with a blood sample that turns it into a giant monster. The second part of the movie is a confrontation between Lauren and the monster. So there is an original story here and a really unique idea. This is a science fiction horror movie that was directed by the legendary Ronny Yu and stars the late great Richard Donner. The thing that makes the movie unique is that it is a sci-fi horror movie. You know, they have to tell the science fiction version of a horror movie. If they didn't tell the science fiction version of the horror movie, it would be boring. The monster is really cool and scary. I was a big fan of the monster in "Alien" and I was very disappointed to see that there wasn't a big monster in this movie. It was too slow. The monster was really cool. The fight scene is well done, the special effects are good, and the characters are really well done. The character's are really well done. What's really interesting is that this is the first movie to have a female lead in the lead. The movie is directed by Ronny Yu and it was written by David Koepp, who also did the screenplay of "An American Werewolf in London". Overall, I really enjoyed this movie. I was surprised by how good it was. But it is not a masterpiece like I thought it was going to be. It is not a masterpiece like "Aliens" is. This is a different type of movie that is really worth watching. 8/10

As a child, I loved the Halloween movies, and this one is no exception. The movie is full of great special effects and has a great story. I was surprised how good the acting was in this movie, as it is really a horror movie. The cast is very good and the movie has a great atmosphere. The movie is very original, and it is great to see how special effects are used in a horror movie. This movie is a must see.

This film is one of the most well-made horror films of all time. It's the best in the series, with a solid story and solid acting. It's not as scary as the other movies, but it's a very good movie. It's a bit slow at the beginning, but once the movie starts going, it's a lot of fun. The acting is very good, and the movie has some really cool moments. This is one of the best horror movies ever made.

The creature is a perfect classic vampire. A being with the appearance of a man in a mask that smokes and shoots needles. What this creature lacks is speed. This creature is more like a simple bus being chased by the vampire in a gigantic chain and some jagged spikes. The vampire makes use of other weapons, including a razor sharp knife to stab his victims, a chainsaw to chop them up and an incredible amount of fire to burn their bodies. The creature is also pretty fast. When he kills his victims, they are burnt to a crisp but the next minute they are back to life. A vampire must move quickly, to avoid getting himself caught in the crossfire. One vampire dies every minute. So it's essential to fight or he dies. The story is basic, yet it is entertaining. The vampire was very powerful and had a lot of experience, which makes him more believable and interesting. The rest of the actors are well known. This movie is recommended for horror fans. 7/10

I have seen this movie twice, the second time was with my daughter. The first time I was very disappointed. It was so slow and boring. The second time I watched it again, and I was very impressed. It was much more entertaining, and had a lot of suspense. The special effects were amazing. I loved the fact that they didn't make the monsters look like they were made of clay. The special effects were very good. The actors were great, especially the boy who played Harry. I thought that the movie was very suspenseful, and I loved the ending. I hope that the movie will be out on DVD soon. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who loves horror movies.

This is one of the few films that I actually enjoyed watching. It was a refreshing change of pace from all the slasher flicks that are being churned out these days. It had a good storyline and the characters were very likable. The plot was a bit predictable but that doesn't take away from the film. I was glad that they kept the film short and to the point. I would recommend this film to anyone who is into horror films. I think that this is one of the better horror films that I have seen in a while. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who likes horror films. This is definitely a movie that you will enjoy.

The first Halloween movie is great and the second one is pretty good as well. But the third one is just a letdown. I mean it's not that bad, but it's not good either. So I really can't say much about this one. If you haven't seen the first one, then you really should. I mean it's not that bad, but it's not great either. So I can't say much about it. But I recommend the first one. It's really good.

I don't know how many people here have seen this movie, but it was one of my favorite movies as a kid. I am happy that someone is trying to bring this great horror to the screen. With the recent remake of horror classic "The Haunting" the film industry has really turned on a dime. Let's just hope for the best of the remake. Michael Myers has always been one of my favorite movie monsters, and this movie proves that. It's a great movie for a low-budget horror film fan like myself. Some of the jokes were forced, but what do you expect? If you are a horror fan this movie will be a keeper. There are tons of famous faces in this movie, which is why I give it a 7 out of 10. That's how I feel. This is not a horror movie, so no serious scares, but I was laughing and being scared the whole time. This movie is a fun movie to watch with your friends, it's not really meant for kids. You will not be scared, but it's a fun movie to watch.

This movie is great and is much better then the "movietally-released" version that I watched the other day. I feel that this version is far better then the released version and it is the only version I've seen. If you like the "movietally-released" version, then you'll love this one.

I am not a horror fan, but I can't help it. I was very happy with this movie. I've seen it a couple of times and it keeps getting better. The movie is very gory, with a lot of blood. The acting is good, and it's very funny. The characters are very likable and well acted. It's a very enjoyable movie. I can't wait to see it again. I think that this movie is underrated, but it's definitely worth watching. It's not perfect, but it's definitely worth watching. 8/10
