WWE Films needs a new sound mixer (person, not board. Okay, maybe a sound board too). That trailer had no low end whatsoever. It really sounded weak in comparison to the punchy trailers that played before it.

Otherwise, it could have just as easily been a Kane wresting entrance video.

"Hostel" wasn't too bad. I liked the way it played out. Supposedly, there's lots of gory footage that was cut to make the "R" rating, so an "unrated" DVD is probably in the works.

I thought the ending was terrific and the movie is a great concept for getting male audiences: one-half porno and the other half slasher movie.

Yeah. Saw this yesterday. Wasn't BAD, but wasn't superb, either.

My complaint is that they made the wrong guy out of the two friends the "hero". The guy that was the hero was the unlikable one of the two friends in the first half of the movie. They seemed to be building the movie around the other "nice" kid. Think about how much more satisfying the movie would've been if he was the one who made it and who got the ultimate revenge against "salad eater guy" at the very end. Just seems to me that was the more obvious way to take the movie. They probably did it the opposite way to "swerve" the audience, but it ended up being the wrong decision, in my opinion.

You probably didn't see CABIN FEVER where the kinda did the exact same thing, did you?

No way, dude. Cabin Fever kicked ass. I'd have to say it's the best flesh-eating virus movie I've ever seen. Plus... what an ending.

And also:

The setup for the shop owner's rifle being "for niggers" (excuse the language) at the beginning of the movie, and the punchline of sorts at the end was hilarious.

Yeah, that spoiler was amazing. The movie was on TV here last week and I still loved it. The one thing that's sadly missing from horror movies is touching on other genre's like comedy.

ps. Do we need spoiler warnings for a movie that's been out for years? If you haven't watched it yet, you're just not going to. Like if I were to say Luke Skywalker's father is...

Oh, COME ON! You REALLY needed to highlight this???

I've got an unwatched DVD of Cabin Fever sitting on this shelf over here, so I appreciated it! Maybe this thread will spur me to get around to it...

If you haven't watched it, you should. It's a pretty enjoyable horror type movie. That is, if you can get past the fact that the star is from Boy Meets World. I could never really get that out of my mind when watching it, which is too bad because he does a fine job.

Good special effects, and while they do the normal horror movie job of casting nothing but people that you actually WANT to see die (like in Wrong Turn), they're not so bad where you can't relate to them.
