I thought it was interesting and found the plot a little disturbing. It was off the formulaic track from most other horror movies and I rented it because of Tarantino. I thought it was okay.

We rented a couple of others over the weekend.
The Hills Have Eyes - enjoyed it. A bit more to the standard formula (Wes Craven)
Silent Hill - A complete waste of time. I'm going to return it today and ask for a free rental or my money back... and I've never done anything like that before. It was that bad.

This is not a typical "horror" movie" as with scary "monsters", of things that are really fake. This is actually based on true events...i'm sure not the whole movie. It is a freaky movie because you think does this really happen and do people get their kicks from doing these things......and thats why it is freaky, because somewhere in the world, there are actually these kinds of people.......I enjoyed it though

I love alot of horror movies especially vampire movies, but this was not a horror movie it was a sick comment on some people in todays culture cashing in on younger peoples curiosities.Just too gory.Something I thought I would never say.To me Amittyville was quite tame. I thought the newer Zombie movies were gory enough[but you know it's not real at least not yet] but not to the sick extent of this movie.
The Excorcist scared the you know what out of me and still does.

I hope no one hates me after reading my post but....
I know there are very sensitive people out there who are very frightened of horror movies in general and I respect that but I really am lost why so many people think this movie was so "gory". In my opinion, they showed almost nothing. A few quick glimpses of a few acts of violence. The premise was frightening but I don't think it was gory at all and I don't think it was well written or well done.

As far as disturbing, gory and thought provoking, I think Saw and Saw II have the monopoly on that. Another one that had some disturbing stuff was See No Evil with wrestling star Kane as the star. Hellraiser I and II were pretty good for fright, some gore and being very creepy. I just love them!!!

As far as Amityville, I was frightened by that because it was supposed to be a true story and I believe in such things but looking at it just as a movie, I don't think it was so great.

Anyway, I had heard raves about Hostel and was extremely disappointed cause I wasted a few hours of my life for nothing lol. Oh and for the record, my husband feels the way many of you feel here. He just doesn't get why I enjoy watching people do awful things to each other. That's not how I look at it but, oh well, he'll never understand:)

A man having a drill go right into his leg. Fingers and legs being cut off in numerous ways. Eyeballs being blowtorched out of the socket and hanging inches out of the skull. Achilles tendons being sliced. People walking in front of trains. The list goes on and on. I guess we all have different ideas of what is gory.

What got to me about this more though was not the gore, but the horror of "why" this was happening. It was the psychological part, not the visual part that really got to me.
