I am not a fan of old-school horror films, I just enjoy the movie for what it is. This movie was nothing short of brilliant. It is one of the best I have seen in quite a while. It is really hard to do a movie like this nowadays with CGI and special effects, and this movie pulled it off. From the amazing designs, to the simple but effective 'creepy' effects, to the thought-provoking script and the great acting, this movie is simply brilliant. Everything works perfectly in this movie. The only thing I don't like is that the first half is just slow and not as scary as the second half. It does keep you on your toes and is pretty suspenseful, but the second half is a bit slow and boring. It is definitely worth a watch and I can't wait to see what the directors come up with next. I have never seen the original short that this movie is based on, but I will definitely be buying it when it comes out. This movie is brilliant, and I can't wait to see what the next one is going to be like. 9/10

this film is so brilliant that it took me by surprise, after all i had not heard about it until I went to a friends house to watch it. It has the same quality of the early 80's horror movies from England, and i must say that it is the best of the genre. The plot is so good and has a real sense of atmosphere. And there are plenty of laugh out loud moments in the film. Plus i have to say that the acting is really good, I mean the main actress Lili Taylor has to be my favourite actress of all time, she is so damn good! But let's talk about the special effects and the 3d. What a great idea, how do they do that? To be honest i really hope the director uses some of the 3d effects in the future films. The sound is really good, the music fits in very well with the mood of the film, and all in all it is a film that i can say i will buy on DVD and recommend to everybody! 9 out of 10

Very, very funny! I laughed the entire time I was watching this movie. It's extremely clever and the whole cast is hilarious. The 'best' comedy I've seen in years. Definitely worth a watch! The plot is very interesting and keeps you in the edge of your seat! A good way to spend an hour or two. Definitely worth your money! I recommend it!

I would rate this a 9 out of 10 if not for a couple of things. The acting was good, there was a nice moment where they got in the studio and me and my girlfriend were discussing what scene we were about to watch and we both agreed that this scene was great. The music was also very nice and it was nice to see the French background. However, the soundtrack was a bit on the cheesy side. I would definitely recommend this movie to fans of horror. It's a horror classic and I will be watching it again, maybe even again in the future. You should definitely check it out. If you haven't seen it, go ahead and watch it, you will be very glad you did. The reviews on this movie are incredible and I definitely recommend that you go check out this movie.

If I were to compare this film to its predecessor, it would be quite difficult to see why it is regarded so highly. But then I'll see "The Blair Witch Project" and this film comes up a few points above it. It's the sort of film that can easily be dismissed as a one-off oddity, with no relevance to the world of horror, that is so bad it's good. But then you also can't help feeling it could be a bit of a homage to other slasher movies of the era, particularly the aforementioned "The Blair Witch Project". The mood of the film is almost directly in line with that of the Blair Witch Project. It is tense, the music is one of the best that I've heard in a horror film, and most importantly the entire film is quite simple. It is a thrill-ride of a film. It is easily one of the best horror films ever made. And I mean that as a compliment.

The idea behind the film is brilliant, I think the characters are almost always memorable. I haven't seen many films where I feel like that, and this is the first. I'm not sure why it got such bad reviews and some people are making negative comments about it's politics and concepts, but if you liked 'The Ring' you'll like this too, it has similar elements but very different meanings and scenes. I was very surprised, because it's completely different from the twisted 'revenge' type of horror films. People who dislike the story will hate it, and people who hate the politics will hate it. So do some research and enjoy it, otherwise, you won't enjoy it. I don't think it's a good idea to be critical of a film when you haven't even seen it, but I have seen several similar films. If you like horror films, don't watch this one, it's no masterpiece. If you don't like horror films, don't watch this one either.

This film was well worth the money I paid to see it. I was a little worried that I wouldn't like it, but I really loved it. I thought the script was brilliant, the acting was good, and the horror elements were actually very effective. I liked that it was cleverly written and cleverly acted. The only real problem I have with the film is that I don't know how it ended. There are a few left that I still haven't found, but if they are there, I don't think they are important. The scenes where there are a lot of ghosts and evil forces are good, but I don't think that they are really as effective as the scenes where the people are dealing with the ghosts, or the evil forces. The ending was also a bit confusing and left the viewer wondering where it would end. Overall, I really liked the movie, and would recommend it to anyone who likes horror films. 9/10.

This film is absolutely brilliant. It's a bit odd at the beginning and then there are some "twist" at the end but the twist is actually the entire point of the film. The acting is fantastic, the storyline is brilliant, the acting is superb, the story is brilliant, the direction is brilliant. I didn't really know what to expect and i had no idea what to expect until i was actually watching the film, so i have no idea how anyone could not like this film. All i can say is, go watch it, you won't regret it, if you are an angry girl who hates the word "pussy" or if you are a guy who likes a good comedy, i think you will really enjoy this film. This is by far the best film i have seen this year, this film is extremely funny, extremely dramatic, extremely artistic, extremely well acted and just overall the best film i have seen in a long time. This film deserves a huge applause. I can't wait for more films by this brilliant director, i love this film, i don't think i could pick any better, go watch it now!

I went into this film with low expectations. I have always enjoyed independent films, but they usually don't appeal to me as much as a traditional feature film. Then, my wife and I went to see this film and I am so glad we did. This movie is really very well done. The characters are very well developed, and even though it has a "found footage" feel to it, I don't find it that hard to tell them apart. The plot is solid, and the story moves at a steady pace. The acting is very good. The characters are very likable, and I would definitely watch this again! I would definitely recommend this movie to people of all ages. It is very good for any age group.

And I like it. I love the whole genre of film noir (along with black comedy, revenge, and detective noir). I've watched many great films that are pure noir, like: The Man Who Would Be King, Psycho, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and of course The Hateful Eight. This movie is a little different. It's not a noir movie. It's not a detective noir. It's a thriller. I can't think of any movies that are pure noir and detective noir. I thought this was a great movie, but I am not sure if I would recommend it. It's good, but not great. It has some great ideas and some good actors. It's not perfect, but it's definitely not bad. I would have to say that it is an honest film, a lot like what I think this genre should be. I also feel like there is a great romance in this film, but I can't say for sure. All in all, I would recommend this movie. It's a little different, but it is a lot better than you think it is.

If you liked "Insidious" or "Saw" you will like this movie. I haven't seen the "Insidious" movies, but I like horror movies and I've always wanted to see this movie and it looks really good. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes horror movies or just want to watch a good movie with a twist.

I am an avid horror/comedy fan and this is definitely one of my favorites. The story is really good and the actors perform fantastically. I think this movie could have been a little more scary, but you can tell that the actors are really into it and what they do is hilarious. Overall, I really enjoyed this movie and am looking forward to see the sequel. You will be pleased with the quality of this movie.

WOW! An adult film from Universal Studios in 1976 starring Kevin Bacon, Drew Barrymore, Julie Hagerty, and Mary Stuart Masterson! I remember going to this place to see it when I was a teenager and my family loved it. It was a bit corny but my favorite part was when the young man brought the dead girl home to die and she got out of the car, walked to the sink, washed her face, then started to burn. That's a classic horror movie ending! Now THAT's a scary movie!

Absolutely my favourite modern horror movie! This movie is like a contemporary version of "The Witches" (aka "Demoniac") or "The Night Stalker" (aka "The Night Biscuit"). Basically, the movie follows the main character Cynthia as she plays a game of Russian Roulette with her life. During the game, she is plagued by visions of an alternate version of herself who runs the place. Her life is basically a joke and she seems to be the only person to survive. She meets her long lost father who was raised by a bunch of children, and she takes him in, because he is in charge of the game and is a respected member of society. Then she meets her long lost step-father, who is a big fan of the game and is her lover. He tells her that the game is rigged. And if she wins, she will be able to have her life back. She tries to play the game but is unable to win. She also meets her mother who is depressed and has a degenerated personality. She refuses to accept her daughter's return to life and also tries to kill her. In the end, Cynthia realizes the truth and returns to the game. This is a very intriguing and scary movie that is not only recommended for horror lovers. It is also a good movie for people who are in denial about the existence of a demonic entity, and who are in denial about the existence of psychic attacks. I have seen many comments about this movie being boring or dull, but in my opinion, this is not the case. It is a slow movie, and the first part of the movie is almost non-existent. But as the movie progresses, you will be astonished and fascinated. It is a movie that has to be seen in the theatre, because of the fast pace, and because of the images and images that are used. It is the kind of movie that makes you see things you would have never even thought of, and make you afraid of the dark and frightened of the night.

Giant robots are not always the way to go. Even the main character, named Cynthia, is a robot, whose only real purpose in life is to feed off other robots. However, her male counterpart, and his female counterpart are much more than this, they are both working to defend the community. The only problem, is that their is an additional robot in the community. And that robot, known as Rex, the leader of the robot community, and another robot known as Botkiller, the killer. The main difference between these two, is the fact that while Rex is a robot, and a fearsome one at that. Rex is more of a pacifist, and does not want to kill, but uses a robot in his place. What happens when these two, and the new robots in town, meet, and find out who the original was? I will not say anymore of what happens in the film, because it would spoil it for you. This is a great film for horror, sci-fi, and robot fans, as well as all fans of all three. There is a lot of great action in this film, and also great humor, and the acting in this film is really, really good. The acting is by far the best I have seen, in any film in my life, and is very believable. The robots in this film, are not what they seem to be. They are not the cliched soldiers from Terminator, or the main robots of "Robot Holocaust" that do not talk. These robots are robots, and they are just as scary as the classic Star Wars robots. The film is done in a very different style, and even though some of the special effects are done better, they still work, in some cases, better than the special effects in other films, but this film does not, and this makes the film, stand out from the rest of the films in the genre. The film is a great film to watch, and to see all the great sci-fi, horror, and robot fans, go see it.

I loved this movie. There is a lot to like about it, and it's a very good movie. It starts off with a very neat idea. A "weird" woman living in a trailer in a abandoned house, who is murdered and left behind in the woods, and it's up to the odd man and woman to help her and stop the maniac who is going to do some bad things to the people who went in to help her. And the movie does not disappoint. It's a very intense horror movie, with some gory death scenes and some great acting. I really liked how they made the "weird" woman so unique. I didn't know what to expect going in, but I was extremely satisfied with the ending. It was very creative, and definitely worth seeing. I would recommend this to anyone, and I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who likes horror movies.

The last movie I saw was "Tales From the Crypt" and was not as good as that. But "Strange Nature" is the first movie I have ever seen in which the director was actually working on the movie. He has done some great work on this film. It is not only a horror film but also a black comedy and an adventure. It is a fantastic movie. I would recommend it to anyone who loves horror movies and black comedies. It is not your typical horror film. It is full of surprises and was also very funny. It is also a very sad movie. I am not really sure what the director was going for with this movie but he succeeded. I loved it. If you like black comedies and horror movies, then you should see this movie. The DVD is also very good. It has extras and special features. I would like to know more about the director's past. But I do not care because the film is great and should not be missed.

I don't think it's possible to watch this movie and not laugh out loud. Yes, this movie is dirty. I think it's the perfect combination of comedy and horror. My favorite joke in the movie was the one where the co-star is explaining that the "rag" is actually a baby shark. What would a parent do if they saw their child crying in the bathroom and there's a baby shark in the toilet? I'm glad to see that this movie has done well in terms of awards, but I would love to see more films like this. Great film. Recommended.

The film is a study of a man's obsession with an insane professor. The student of the professor's eccentric art style becomes an obsession of his own. It starts with him telling her he wants to study her art style. Then he invites her to his studio where she gives him her famous "Floating In A Wonderland" painting. He decides to teach her that painting. When she takes the picture home, the young lady starts having visions of a female ghost and a murder. It's a really good movie. The young lady who gave her "Floating in A Wonderland" portrait to the professor is very appealing. She has that dreamy look. The atmosphere is very good. The Professor is eccentric. He is very imaginative. There are several well-shot scenes of his studio. There is also a scene of him picking up his wife and throwing her in the bathtub. There are many other scenes of his bizarre habits. The young lady is attractive and does an excellent job. In the end, she does get her wish, but she is too young to get it. It's not really a love story, but a man's obsession with a woman. It is very interesting.

Loved the music, thought it was absolutely wonderful! I've seen many reviews saying that it was 'over-dramatic', but I think it's perfect. It's not exactly a 'slice of life', but the actors, actresses and scenery bring the feel of the time to the screen. If you're a fan of Horror films, this is a must!

This film is in my top 10 all time favorites. Some parts will have you rolling on the floor with laughter and some parts will have you sobbing and hugging your loved ones. The plot is simple, just like everything else that is great about the movie. They did a great job at making a fun and scary film that is as frightening as it is funny. If you want to watch a good film you should go out and rent this movie. It is a film that you will never forget. It is a movie that will give you a lot of fun and a good time. It is a film that will keep you on the edge of your seat and be on the edge of your seat when it ends. The characters are well written and the characters are very well played. The cast is perfect for the characters. This film is a great family movie that will keep you in your seat. The actors do a great job at portraying the characters that they portray. If you want to watch a film that is a lot of fun and has great characters and a good plot. Go out and rent this film. It is a great movie for everyone.

When I first heard that the movie "Cynthia" was being made, I was skeptical because I am a movie buff. I thought that it would be a lame Hollywood action movie, with some really cheesy scenes, no one would like it. Then I was very surprised when I watched it. What a great movie! The movie is written really well, but still has good camera angles, some good characters, and a really good story. You just have to watch the movie to understand it, but I think that it's also really hard to understand it. It's very surprising, not to say scary, but very intense, and some scenes are really funny, like the end of the movie is a great scene. Also the scene with an ape in the truck is one of the funniest scenes I have ever seen. I have seen many horror movies, and "Cynthia" is my favorite one. Definitely check it out. My vote is 9/10.

A TV movie (which in fact I have seen before, but just couldn't remember where), from the 70's, is usually a terrible experience. I haven't seen this one for a long time, however, I had forgotten about it. It is one of those movies that seem to be forgotten but are still really good. I will definitely give this movie a try and see how it turns out. As for me, I am still not sure what to think about this movie. I can't really put my finger on what it is that makes it great or not. Maybe it's just that it is too long (it is nearly three hours long), but as for that, this movie is worth seeing. It is well-directed and shot. It is interesting to note that it is a completely different movie from the ones that I have seen before, like from "Night of the Living Dead". I'm not sure if it's because of the subject matter or the genre of the film (or maybe it's because of the subject matter that it's so different). Anyway, if you're a fan of the horror genre, then definitely give this one a chance.

I loved this movie so much, it was so unique, it made me feel like a child again and made me feel like I was supposed to feel. It was a kind of sad, but at the same time it was funny, and the vampire look was beautiful. The story is really unique, but it is not a boring movie, it is something very different. I give this movie a 10/10

The movie was amazing! I can't say that there are many good horror movies, but this one was one of the best I have ever seen. The beginning was weird, but you can't take it serious. The way that it's told and explained was awesome. It made you think that maybe there was something supernatural going on. This movie is very original, and so is the music. You can't take your eyes off of it. The acting is great, and I thought that Brittany Murphy was the best thing about the movie. I recommend this movie to any movie lovers, and I also recommend it to people who are a fan of horror movies.

I absolutely loved this movie. It's funny, it's emotional, it's scary, it's full of action. It has all of the necessary ingredients to be the next great classic horror movie. It's certainly not a classic, but it is so unbelievably good. I don't think I have ever seen such a great horror movie in my life. It's truly terrifying and I would recommend this movie to anyone who loves scary movies, regardless of age. The way the movie goes from A to Z in the first 15 minutes, is awesome. The dialog between Cynthia and her father, is well done and the director did an amazing job at making the movie more dramatic and scary. I have never seen such an awesome movie with so many scary scenes. The final part is just soooo sad. I'm glad I saw it, I'm glad I saw it and I'm glad it made me laugh. I think this movie has a good story, a great acting, a great cast, a good plot, a good pace, a good ending, and a great movie. The director did a great job at making this movie what it is. Go see it!
