    Will buy this even though my faith is shot as I have yet to receive any info on not receiving the comics I Indigogo’d.

    • JoeInTheBox

      I stopped buying into crowd sourced projects when I realized they were just “donations”. Never are we to expect to actually receive anything from them, despite what they claim.

      • Sam Beckett

        I’ve learned that lesson now.

  • Necro

    Am I wrong in asking if there’s anyone else who didn’t think this film was all that, and doesn’t deserve all the praise that it receives?

    • There is no “wrong” when it comes to someone’s opinion. I love the film, but just because I think it’s great doesn’t make that a fact or “right.” So no, you’re fine. =)

      • Necro

        Yeah I know Trace but it gets so much love here on BD I just didn’t want that to come across as being disrespectful. Every one has their own unique opinion about different films and whatnot, that’s what makes this genre so unique and great, but I just wanted to be respectful about it. Looking back at my comment I shouldn’t have used the word “wrong”. Thanks for that though Trace! It’s greatly appreciated!

        • Oh for sure. I just think people are so quick to attack here and I always want these comment boards to be a place of respectful discussion. I LOVE talking film, especially with someone who disagrees. I find that I learn more about a film that way. Just trying to be supportive though. We are all entitled to our opinion! =)

      I personally found it to be nothing more than a watered down scream. I was all set to really enjoy it but for a slasher comedy there was very little violence (and what violence there is is pretty tame iirc) and it wasn’t very funny either. Not horrible but I just didn’t get it

      • Necro

        Yeah same here Collin! I might actually go back for a 3rd watch just to see if it hits my Horror ‘taste’ buds any different. Usually though if it didn’t appeal to me after the 2nd, chances are the 3rd time won’t matter! It’s just it was so dull, and with Scott Wilson trying to teach him about his ‘Ahab’ and all that other corny shit! I think if the 3rd act would’ve been better maybe I could say something better about it.

    • I didn’t like it that much. I found it to be ok at best, meh

    • I actually didn’t care for it at all, but I’ve been wanting to give it a revisit.

  • Nicolas Caiveau

    I love this movie and really consider it an official part of the “Slasher Cinematic Universe”, coz yeah, that’s a thing to me^^

  • Will they include the 10th anniversary of one with the extra scenes and whatnot?

  • jflowers1

    Awesome. Now if they would just add Leslie Vernon to the Dead by Daylight game, that would be the greatest.
