    Just got back from the screening and was wondering if anyone else has seen this gem of a film? If you like horror movies and can go into them with more of a sense of a comedy, (how stupid the protagonists are ... etc etc) this one is awesome. Delivered some of the best laughs I have had in a while. The main girls first encounter with leatherface is fucking GOLDEN. Run away ... fall down first flight of moderately easy stairs... somehow completely botch and fail a litteral 2 foot little cemetary ground fence seriously coulda fucking bunnyhopped that shit... Gets up and instead of just continuing to run from gimped slow chainsaw wielding foe hides in the one open grave right in front of the guy... like there is no way he didnt see her get in the grave lmao.

    Horror has just turned into gore porn - I haven't been scared since the Exorcist and It.

    Agreed. The Thing is the only movie I can think of that genuinely scared me as an adult. Though there was a movie about a pandemic recently that had me horrified from the trailer. But I have no idea how the movie was.

    American horror is just blood and gore. I prefer Japanese or more of the supernatural types of movies, which is actually terrifying.

    I could not sleep without some source of light on for years after watching that.

    Probably. I completely avoided it though. I'm not interested in a horror that's a real possibility right now. There's no relief to be had at the end of the movie. Just paranoia.
    Lmao I was scarred when I was 4 after watching Child's Play. I couldn't watch a scary movie for 6 years after that until I watched It at my friend's sleepover. I LOVED that movie and wasn't even the slightest bit scared. I can't stomach gore porn like a Saw but real horror movies rarely tend to garner any fear in me.

    I honestly.. thought the movie IT was just awful.. just didn't do it for me, even when I saw it as a kid I didn't like it that much.

    While Hollow Man isn't EXACTLY a horror movie, Rhona Mitra put on an excellent performance...

    That's because Rhona IS Lara Croft.
