Best Comedy of the year. Was not scary at all.
Everyone I know who has seen it loved it.
Not my genre.

I love movies, have since I was little…so that‘s going on 5 decades…even took a couple film classes featuring great films form all genres and eras.....I enjoy a very broad range of types…and I know how to gauge my expectations pretty effectively...but I have to say that while this wasn't terrible like, say, Doom, or full of crappy production and awful performances really, but it is the most "talked-about-but-for-God‘s-sake-why?" and over-hyped movie I can remember in a long time.
It was more of a nothing--a void---a loss of time, not unpleasant and certainly not entertaining. It was a step up from waiting in an office for some appointment with magazines you don‘t care abut but it beats looking at the rug.
It wasn't bad enough to be interesting or funny in that way, either, and certainly wasn't good in any way. It was absolutely unoriginal to the point of not needing a screenplay or dialogue written but just people doing an improv-mimicking of what you’ve seen in other movies made the least few years--but minusing out anything that would indicate someone was trying to accomplish something other than seeing how exceptionally mundane and stale (as opposed to god-awful) they could make a full length film.
Nothing stood out even in it's failure. It's like someone tried to make a total non-event and succeeded. Maybe there were two or three scenes that were "movie-worthy" for an average run of the mill TV movie (Say SyFy channel. Wow. I have no idea how anyone got into this to any degree. The theatre was fairly full and it was silent except for a few mildly derisive laughs. At the end, everyone was leaving with more or less a bored or "you're kidding" type of vibe. Weird.
I wrote this much because I was a little pissed and I did hear so muck talk about it. I figured it for at least a good "popcorn" flick and took rare bonus free Friday time that I could have spent doing something much better with my companion. I thought this would be fun cuz she gets scared easy (and is very entertaining when doing it) but she only jumped (a little) once and made one “ooohhh“ sound which is less actual fear response than what she will give up during a Simpson’s Halloween episode.
"Captain, it's a viewpoint--not one of ours! We're under attack!"
"I see it, ensign! Engage amygdala! Transfer all power from frontal lobes!
Suspend critical thinking field! Go to course heading of reflexive response 101 at full bias!
Now!'Enter' at will!"
"It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so."
I laughed through the whole thing and was very disappointed at how short and not frightening this movie was. Than again I would rather see things with my own eyes than a hollywood movie that "documents" paranormal activity...
This movie sucked........was not scary at all. It was boring. To truly enjoy this movie, it has to be completely quiet so that you can zone out and let your mind get completely wrapped around this movie. Of course I had to go to the same showing as the entire freshman class of some local duesh bag high school. And if they werent holding loud private conversations, I had to deal with the older fat guy playing with his dam cell phone. I swear, this is exactly why I refuse to go to the movies Fr-Sun......Im really beginning to hate the general public....But this movie sucked regardless. It was repetitive and extremely overrated...

Saw it Friday.... big let down. Had heard great things about it too. I'm not one to get "scared" by horror movies, if anything I usually find them funny and this one was no real exception. I laughed a lot during the movie, mostly whenever the male lead was talking just b/c he had some great lines. The girl I brought with me also said it was one of the worst movies she'd seen. Def a renter at best.
To the people who didn't like it, I'm curious about something... What are some horror movies that you did like or did think were scary?
Will gladly watch it at home on the big screen, rather than go to the theaters.
I am entertained by these types of movies but not typically scared.
Thanks for the sig LCSF
I want to check it out. A friend of mine saw it with his girlfriend and said it was a very powerful movie. He said that after the movie he felt very strange and that he felt like he needed to go home and read the bible lol. Considering he's not a religious guy, I thought his comment was very interesting.
i don't understand how people can laugh through this movie? i haven't seen it so i can't comment on it personally. i mean is it actually funny or are people laughing through it to ease tension and act like they aren't scared?
