An interesting, albeit contrived set up. Logically speaking, a lot of it doesn't add up, but who really goes into a horror film looking for logic? Not me. What I look for (and yes, I'm ashamed) is the probability of a sequel. Nothing tickles my pickle quite lick a franchise, and this movie has the killer, it has the Saw-esque premise, it even has that grimy look that everyone is going for these days. The problem is that none of it is particularly enjoyable or scary. From time to time it's gross, but never even slightly frightening. Not that it needs to be in today's franchise world, but I do prefer my series' to start out good and slowly devolve into putrid messes.
You're appreciation of this film will depend on what you want out of it.
If you want a serious film that dissects the mythology, you're going to leave very disappointed.
If you're looking for a campy, silly, occassionally exciting romp through briefly told mythology, then strap on your breastplate, grab the nearest severed head and let's do this thing.
Funny would be overstating it. This is not a funny movie, it's a pleasantly cute movie. There's nothing particularly wrong with it, yet there's nothing really right either.
A harmless trifle. It isn't good, but it's not the worst thing I've ever seen. Casey Affleck looks creepy with blond hair. That's all I've got.
A favorite of mine as a youngster...which explains a lot about my tastes as an adult. The dialogue is awful, the acting is even worse, the script is joke...assuming there ever was a completed script and the final scene is groan-worthy. However, it's a fun throwback to the good ol' monster movies. I will always have a soft spot for this one.
