the 1 star reviewers have are not credible
on November 12, 2003
Dont believe the one star reviews. I love horror, good horror. This is a better adaptation of an ok japanese film.
Its not a classic, but has enought twists, interest and scarey bits in it to keep interest. Like, say, 28 Days Later.
I have to laugh at the 1 star reviewers. One said that we should watch classics like Friday the 13th etc. These films are rubbish, and teen rubbish which is worse. If you knew the genre then you could have sited; Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Evil Dead or the Shining. Clearly you dont know what you are on about.
Another reviewer droned on about scarey kids. Well duh, it and the original version centre around a dead kid. Killed at the hands of the parents. That is the central plot. So what would you have replaced the kid with, a scarey rabbit???
Another 1 star wonder says the end killed it. Jeez thats funny. The end is a horror classic. It was voted top 5 scarey moments on celluloid. So Im not sure how it ruined the film.
However clicking through on some of the one star reviewers, I notice theyve given high marks to rubbish like Ghost Ship, Cradle 2 Grave and low marks to classics like Pulp Fiction, Final Destination. So be warned, either these people are taking the piss, or even more scarey, they are serious!
Good, not a classic, worth seeing with the lights down low for a few shocks. Or you could watch the scarey Ghost Ship, which of course was scarey only in that it was trash! ;-)
