I thought it was too generic and stereotypical. I could predict what was going to happen and when. I figured out the ending halfway through the movie. The concept had potential, but they didn't use it right to rise to the potential.

The music was too generic, like they just googled "Horror movie music" and used the first hit. And the jump scares... The ones where something suddenly pops up with a loud music hit. WAY too many of those. It got old. Those don't scare me because they're scary, they scare me because you're suddenly blasting music at me when it was previously very quiet. And doing it every 9 minutes isn't going to instill fear in your audience.

I don't know. I thought it was a waste of my 8 dollars. It was bland. It DID have potential, it really did. The plot seemed refreshing. But they absolutely failed to rise to the expectations. It was another run of the mill horror movie that, halfway through, I couldn't wait to be done with.
Oh WOW! You only pay $8 for a movie! Lucky New Jersey is so expensive, almost $12.

I like this. I like the negative reviews because not everyone has to agree with everyone else so it didn't get to me too much. Plus the "jump" music has virtually no effect on me. We all have different tastes.

I agree with the music. I was more focused on the storyline than anything else. I thought it was good and they based it off of an old fairy tale (which I plan on researching, I'm a research hound I swear haha) which I enjoyed.

I agree that once you start to pay attention you figure it out. But I can usually figure out the ending of movies well before they end anyway. (My friends and I take bets on who gets the movie endings right and let's just say I've gotten back my fair share of movie money =P)

I thought it was very refreshing considering some of the horror films out. Some of them I sit through bored because there's no story line. This one made me take a breath of fresh air though.

Differences in opinions are fun Oh on that note go check out a horror film called The Toybox. You want to see a bad movie check that out haha. It sounded like it was going to be great but I was really disappointed when I rented and watched it. No bueno.

Pan's Labyrinth was such a wonderful movie.
LOVED Pan's Labyrinth. I hum that lullaby to Sahara if she gets nervous on the trail. Instantly calms her down (and me, too!).

I love Guillermo del Toro. He makes some beautiful movies. Haven't seen this one yet but the Orphanage was gorgeous.

For a movie with incredibly disturbing unique music, watch Sinister! Even if you don't like the plot, you will love the score.

Its incredibly disturbing though, and not for the faint of heart.

I haven't yet, but if they used "Mama" by My Chemical Romance that's more incentive for me to go see it.

I want too (haven't read the thread because I haven't yet) but I haven't been able to get out so I'm waiting for either Netflix or DVD - Can't do a movie theater with my broken bones yet.
