Well, I've got nothing against spoilers in this thread.

It was a demon, wasn't it?

Ds#2 and I just saw it tonight and really enjoyed it! I am big horror fan, though.

Creeeeeeeepy!!!



I really liked the way it was filmed ( big fan of the Blair Witch, too.)

Oh, and I agree that there are some really terrific Japanese horror movies! We've seen the Ju-on ( The Grudge) Ringu ( The Ring) and Kairo ( Pulse.)

There's a Spanish film that's good...{Rec.} but it's way more gorey. Quaratine was the American remake.

Oh, I really liked their house in Paranormal.

DD wants me to take her. She's 16. LIkely I'd be chicken and she'd be laughing. It's on my wait for dvd list. My anxiety is running pretty high lately but it's all the talk here on the radio station we listen to.

It wasn't as scary as everyone kept saying it was. I'm sorry I wasted my rare date night on it. I was hoping for so much more!

I found it irritating the way it was filmed. I was like Hurry up and get to it all ready. Moved to slow for me. I do like the use of "real" type people. I found the boyfriend annoying as all get out.

Our upstairs neighbors make more noise than the thing haunting them but it did give me some good ideas for proving it to the landlord.

I took dd and a friend who had movie passes when her Halloween plans fell thru. They had a good time. They weren't scared either except by the msg at the end that said it was a true story and the outcome.

It did not really scare me until I got home and heard my upstairs neighbors thunking about.

I thought it was a bit scary but I grew up around some individuals who had some crazy experiences with the type of thing haunting them.

There were people in the theater with us screaming! Out loud! What the heck?
That made it a bit less scary because every time someone screamed I laughed.

Dh got movie-sick and threw up. He was the same way at Blair Witch. Poor guy.

I am SO pathetic...
I didn't even watch the movie.
I just watched the trailers, and read this thread, and when I woke up without DP in bed last night, I had to find him in his "man-cave" and insist on him joining me in bed.

I was worried something will crawl under my blanket and bite me.

He always jokes that I'm not allowed to watch R-rated stuff. He really has a point there...

That's exactly what happens to me! I got the heebie jeebies just reading about it and looking at screen shots!

Does something crawl under the blanket and bite someone in the movie??

It depends what freaks you out.

I am usually easily scared by horror, but it's the images that get stuck in my head the worst -- like the girl in The Ring, and the boy in The Grudge, those totally stick with me. We saw Paranormal Activity last week, and I liked it . . . I turned my head away in anticipation once, but otherwise, I was fine. It hasn't stayed with me at all, either.

I also don't believe in the thing that was bothering them, and I thought the filming style was annoying (as did my partner). We probably wouldn't have seen it if we'd known that in advance.

I really wanted it to turn out that the boyfriend was tricking her and that the sleep deprivation made her so crazy that she killed him. That would have been an awesome ending. This was just kinda . . . "Oh. That. Suuuure."

I don't believe in the things that are the antagonists in the Ring or the Grudge (I didn't see the American version of the Grudge, I saw the Japanese ones, Ju-on) but I still thought they were decent movies with good stories.

I have to say that this was probably THE dumbest movie I've seen in a long time. Really, really dumb. A complete waste of money. I wanted to be scared or at least freaked out, but this movie really missed the mark. Doesn't even qualify as horror or "scary movie." All of the "scary parts" are in the trailer.

: oh i so hear you. i am a single mom. and i am dying to go see it and NOT. i have no one at night to go call.

one of the things that being a mother did is take away my tolerance for scary movies. i laughed right thru the exorcist when i saw in movie theaters what 8-10 years ago. the b/w awakening freaked me out.

maybe if i see the movie in the daytime (I read teh spoiler and dont believe in it either) i might not be scared.

the thing is i am dying to know what camp i would fall into.

people who found this movie funny
or people who found it scary

and i am scared of being in the scary camp.

I found it scary but I didn't really like the ending.




I laughed all through Blair Witch Project.

I saw this yesterday, and let me tell you it's not scary at all. This movie is a joke "the scariest movie of all time" yeah sure. The coolest parts were:

Warning :: Spoiler Ahead! Highlight to read message!
when the demon drags her out of bed
and when they find the burned picture in the attic

I think the demon had a crush on her



But then again, I'm a big horror fan and I haven't seen a movie that has actually scared me to the point I have the mental image in my head.

REC, was a better film though.

Ugh. Really? I guess I won't be seeing this one then.

I don't even own a video camera cause I could never go back and watch home movies...I vomit every time.

I had to get up and leave that movie that came out last Nov...geesh, I can't even remember the name of it.
The one where the paramedics respond to a apartment building and get trapped inside with whatever is killing the people?!?!?
Whichever movie it was I had to leave about 30 mins in....I only stayed that long cause I was with other people.

Blair Witch was agonizing to watch for me. Blech.

:Puke
