Subject: I am so tired of these pg-13 horror movies...
Granted, I haven't seen the film yet...but, how exactly can the movie match up to the hype it's trailers are creating while still maintaining a pg-13 rating?
The horror genre has been dead since the mid-to-late eighties, with no concerted, serious attempts to resurrect it. Sure, there have been a few bright spots (I just saw "Quarantine", which I thought was pretty good)...but most of what you see nowadays are movies that hold back, throw in lame jokes to ease the tension, or reduce the humanity of the heroines so the audience won't empathize with them when they're turned to sausage.
When will they stop compromising the art of the horror flick for the expanded market of a pg-13 rating? Don't they know they lose as many from the compromise as they could gain from doing a really scary movie?
I was -so- looking forward to this movie...but even "Shaun of the Dead" managed to pull off an "R" rating.
And before you start telling me that a really good horror movie works through insinuation rather than direct blunt-force trauma, can you tell me exactly how much this movie was insinuating when that backwards quadruped-type-thing's head started spinning around in the trailer?
My guess is that all of the good scenes have been summarized for us already in the advertisements.
If you're telling me that a 13-year old can watch this movie without parental guidance, then I don't need to be there sitting next to them.
Try to make a truly frightening movie for once, rather than trying to appease the happy-middle-ground soft people. People can handle it, and will flock to a movie that challenges them. Once they hear that something is mediocre...well, they won't be flocking anywhere.
