Brittany Murphy was very good in this film, played the part brilliantly, and she's not your average, blonde, big tits American high school lead in these films. Spookily, she reminds me of a younger Angelina Jolie! She's got the looks off to a T.
Look for out the dad, played by Michael Biehn, who starred as the "good guy" in the first Terminator. Looks so different, but the eyes are the same.
Watching the 10 minutes of extras, which weren't even that good, was a bit boring and the directors and everyone else, kept describing the film as "humorous". Uh, I'm sorry, but where? Maybe I'm just too thick to notice the humour. It's a horror movie, I'm not exactly looking for humour in it :)
I wouldn't say I would watch this film again. Maybe again sometime. But if you want a scary teen flick, stick to the Scream triology.
I watched Terror Tract first, because I was sure it would be the more superfluous of the two movies (it's got John Ritter in it for God's sake). But it actually turned out to be an anthology film (like Creepshow and Tales from the Crypt) with three very entertaining short stories interwoven by a disturbing wraparound sequence featuring Ritter trying to sell houses in a community that is not all that it appears to be. Each story, including the wraparound-Ritter sequences, has a strong (sometimes familiar) story with a surprising, satisfying ending. It's a fun movie...not really a fun as in "comedy", but it's a good, fun, vengeful-dead-husband-evil-monkey-psycho-granny-killer horror.
Cherry Falls was also a real treat. It's a straight horror movie that borrows from about every recent Scream-esque film out there, and then adds some surprising twists to keep it fresh. There's no annoying fake "jump" scares (well, maybe one), the killer's motives actually make sense, and the whole movie has an air of paranoia about it. It really keeps you guessing as the script is very solid and the acting is all-around excellent.
Both movies are in anamorphic widescreen (with a surprisingly strong Dolby 2.0 audio track...the thunderstorm in the Terror Tract Evil-Monkey story sounds awesome) and are on the same side of the disc. There are no extras except scene selection...HIGHLY recommended!!

It's dawson creek meeting scary movie. I was wondering if this movie was a horror or a comedy. The acting is so bad, the killer is laughable in his/her disguisement. Read morePublished on Jan. 23 2004 by Guiglou
