    I didn't ever say it makes it overrated for a fact, which is why I've been saying it's only MY opinion.

    The fact that you can't comprehend that & continually try to pass off your own opinion as the Bible by which all horror fans should listen/agree makes you look an all around unimportant ass....hole.

      You aren't clever. Stop pretending lords of boredom is a funny title.

        Only if you stop pretending throwing in visual references to every cult film from the past 35 years makes Lords an interesting vision.

          And you should stop pretending to be intelligent by constantly bitching about a movie that had no relevance to this topic until YOU brought it up.

          • Damn DudeClassicMan you must like the taste of Zilla's dick because you just won't leave him alone.

            He doesn't like Shining. Big fucking deal. Just because it's a "widely regarded classic" doesn't mean every single person on earth has to suck its dick. Hell although I like it, it's nowhere near the top of my list of favorite horror films. It's an exceptionally well made piece of cinema but I don't see myself going back to it anytime soon.

            Even though I've disagreed with Zilla on quite a few things, I respect his honesty.

            As for Sinister, it's great. Aside from a few lame jump scares it's an unsettling piece of horror entertainment with a vicious mean streak and a great performance from Ethan Hawke.

            Then it's my job to teach them how to do it, how they will be able to master a rockhard dick with their skillfull tongue - simple. I did that once, I'll do it again, no prob for Santa.

              ^ This...all of it. All of it is spot on.

              The one thing I really liked about the movie is that the family seemed like a real one. There wasn't anyone I looked at & thought "they shouldn't have been cast."

              Admittedly, though, I kinda wish we got to see more of the Deputy. He was fucking hilarious...probably my favorite character of the movie.

                IDK man everyone aside from Ethan was cookie cutter and utterly replaceable. I've never seen a more boring & tedious family to have to watch through 90 minutes.

                That's not really a knock on the film at all since it's entirely almost entirely Ethan's story but there was definitely a lack of character development present in the family.


                Put "2 Fast 2 Furious" in B&W and Se7en thinks he's watching a Bergman film.
                I find the Metal Gear Solid series to be mediocre at best.

                    Well, to each his own. I can see why you would say that, though. Even though I found the family likable, I do think they could've probably added on a little more back story.

                    But, kudos definitely has to be given to Hawke. Even though he's more or less an asshole in this movie that puts his family in danger, he still comes off as being extremely likeable.

                    Then again, I have yet to ever see Ethan Hawke in a movie where I don't like him.

                    • Loved the creepy vibe and the home videos

                      Okay so my girlfriend has a job, I'm back and I got more time to spend with my favorite past time, horror movies. What's good about timeless movies like oh say Dressed to Kill is they never run out of spooky moments, foreboding minutia and just plain good gory kills. Well here we go with a similar foreboding vibe in this movie. As soon as Ethan finds that video camera, no as soon as he moves in to that house, the bad minutia starts to tug on ones shirt lapels. Everything feels right or wrong in this one. There is a sense of impending doom in the ever flowing reels of film, so much so that when the demon finally strikes it is no great revelation. Do I believe this is because the script writing is commonplace or see thru, no. Instead its as if a natural occurrence of events leading up from the discovery of the reels has occurred. All in all, a taut thriller, even if the ending is a mile wide open.

                        Spot-on review.. It's obvious from the get that things aren't going to end well. The fact that the daytime scenes didn't illuminate things much just made the dread that much more palpable.

                          • Just saw this for the first time. (Years after everyone else.)

                            Parts of it were well directed and tense. The home movies were very creepy and the acting was great. But the script was full of stupid "horror movie behaviour". Why not take the movies to the police? Why stay in the creepy house when you know something is wrong? Why go to check out strange noises without waking up your spouse or turning on the lights?

                            Ethan walking around in the dark was creepy until they introduced the little demon children playing hide and seek with him.

                            The demon was scary when glimpsed, but the final scene ruined it. The jump scare at the end ruined whatever impact the bleak ending had but taking the viewer out of the moment.


                            Also for a country full of NRA types why do American horror characters never have (or buy) a gun? Checking out spooky goings on with a baseball bat...

                              There's like 300 million people in the US bro. Stereotypical NRA gun nuts don't make up THAT much of the country.

                              Just like nice Canadians. We aren't nice.

                                Yeah, I really disliked the ending and it spoiled the demon for me. Overall I liked it though as the home movies were so damn creepy.
