It's not an easy time to be a real man. With the proliferation of shows like Sex and the City and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, men who want to uphold the proper ideals of their gender often face criticism instead of praise. That's why movies like this are so important today. It's important to have a movie where guys respond like rational men. Where the proper response to a rat on your kitchen counter is to spray the entire room with automatic weapons fire, killing every living thing in sight. Where the proper response to being told that the serial killer who murdered your partner is in fact Satan, who has come to earth to eat people's hearts and take them back to Hell, is to say that… Read more

This book is without a doubt as relevant now as it was when Dickens wrote it. In fact, its probably more so. As G.K. Chesterton said, when Dickens wrote this book, he had grown up.

Could this movie be any more of a ripoff of the plot of The Ring? Then again, I could be wrong. I'm not even sure this movie had a plot, anyway. It's just an incoherent pile of garbage that at times is almost painful to watch. There is nothing in this movie but the director's typical perverse sadism, a few impressive visuals, and some of the worst acting this side of Showgirls. Someday director William Malone is going to be arrested for something really nasty, and the world will see what a twisted sicko this guy actually is. Avoid this movie at all costs! If someone gives you this movie as a gift, they probably secretly hate you!!
