A little too sappy for me. Long, drawn out, boring as hell, it felt more like watching a Lifetime movie, and that's not a good thing. You would think this was every womans dream, by the way...have a baby, and then the man dies. Why was everyone crying at the end?
Apparently John Carpenter thinks he can get away with a few spills, chills, freak outs, gross outs, and assume that everyone is going to overlook the plot holes and wtf moments, not to mention the fact that 99.9% of the film has 0% explanation as to what the hell is going on! Are they zombies or not? How does a woman live after having her head chopped off? Why did a dead man from the church have a key with him to begin with? Why was everyone eyeing the sky? Why that specific church for the portal to Hell, why not the one in the next town, the one where the cast isn't so annoying like the ones in this picture! And the ending? Don't get me started, it just opened up a new line of questions. The main question I was asking myself: WHY WAS THIS MOVIE EVEN MADE!!!
I can't say this is exactly a good movie. However, if you've ever had any curiosity or intentions on ever starting to use cocaine, please watch this movie. It will give you everything you need to know, trust me. And for that reason, I absolutely LOVE this movie!
Politically incorrect, but that's what I love about it. It's a movie that took a lot of balls to make and release, and was controversial back in 1975, which means...NO WAY IN HELL would it be made or released today. It may take a few viewings to really appreciate it, once you get past the shock factor. That's if you can.
