New respect for Dave Chapelle for making the audience think, and not regurgitate predigested nonsense as per usual. Brilliant, thoughtful, and wise. This is the highest and best use of comedy, sparking what is potentially fatally endangered in today's world: critical thinking.
This is the kind of movie we would stay up late when I was 11 to watch amd think it was really scary. Monster gets points for cool bod. Otherwise kind of a dud. Left me just eh. Way too many scenes of trees.
Whoa! It's following me a day after! This is a reeeeeaaaaalllly creepy movie. The music is perfect, so odd and minor and disturbing. The cinematography makes suburbia a nightmare setting without even trying. Flawless acting by all the kids. I felt like I knew them from my hometown. The creepiest movie monsters ever, though I couldn't really tell you why. Because they look like us? Original plot, well done, and when a single person (shambled?) towards me on my hike through the woods today, I skeedaddled to the road, where I walked down the middle of it all the way to my car. In broad daylight. And I'm 60!
Like every sequel ever made, this movie appears to have been filmed by someone who took note of the highlights and things that worked and tried to insert them into a generic plot. Tepid, flat, and weak, even the flying body parts couldn't enliven it. Zero chemistry from the actors, and I really didn't care whether they lived or died. Using the same music and a touch of the artistic angles and scenes reminiscent of the original doesn not make a good remake. Pass.
Cho is solid and believable throughout. The plot device of having the entire movie unfold via screenshots works better than expected. Still the plot felt ponderous and the ending tacked on. Next time out I hope the director takes the story farther into uncharted territory and takes more risks when placing the characters in peril. He has the instincts to pull it off.
