Pretty good movie. Effects were good, acting, story, you name it. Many cool moments but one in particular I really like with Josh and Famke close to the end of the movie when she loses her head. I love Joshes line, "Fuck this I'm outta here" lol
I saw this last night for the first time and actually really enjoyed it! Kevin Williamson definitely went for the Scream vibe rather than the dreadful I Know What You Did Last Summer! It's smart, irreverent and extremely entertaining. There was never a dull moment and the over-the-top effects were a lot of fun. It reminded me a lot of Slither actually. It was also nice to get a few likable characters and the cast was brilliant. The only trouble is that it was often predictable, with a disappointingly clichéd happy ending. Still, it's a ton of fun!
Great movie, new it would be great since i saw it advertised on a Halloween h20 vhs (oh the momories) it was a big topic on the school yard when it broke over here. I thought it was a great twist on a who dunnit story which alot of people fail to see. Awesome ensemble of character and veterans. 8/10
I've always felt this was a sadly underrated, forgotten gem. It never tried to be more than what it was, a fun, crazy, funny sci-fi horror from a red-hot (at the time) Kevin Williamson and Robert Rodriguez. Definitely one of those movies I can watch and enjoy over and over.
And as a follow-up to my original post on this thread, the Blu-ray is gorgeous.
I hate being the negative nancy of the thread but I didnt really like this much. I havent seen it since it was in theaters so what I do remember of it I wasnt really impressed with. I do remember at the end when Elijah Wood and his love interest were talking I was able to see the bottom half of the boom mic hanging in view which I found to be a bit ridiculous. The best part of the movie for me was the cover of Another Brick In The Wall and that wasnt even great considering Layne Staley's vocals sounded similar to what I would imagne Bill Murray sounds like when he wakes up in the morning. All in all I thought it was pretty bad for a Rodriguez film.
I think sometimes the boom mike can be the fault of the theater. Not all of the image is meant to be projected... something like that. Could be wrong.
As to the movie, I recently rewatched it and really enjoyed. It's a compilation of tropes and actors that are great 90s nostalgia. Well put together. Funny at times. I could definitely watch it once a year for the foreseeable future.
FROM DUSK TILL DAWN is one of my favourite films of all time. And I recall looking forward to Rodriguez's next film but this was like a gnat's-fart after a tornado! Such a lame film. It features some of the poorest CGI ever placed on screen. Much as I respect RR as a film-maker, this was by far one of his weakest efforts.
This movie is fun, nothing more. For me Rodriguez isn't half as good as he's made out to be.

This was one of the movies tat really got me into hoor/sci-fi when I was a kid and it first came out. I've probibly seen it 15 times and it never gets old, funny writing, and the suspence is pretty good.
