An anti-horror horror movie

This film is a horror movie that is poking fun at horror movies and movies in general. So if you're looking for a film that you can cradle a scared lady-friend to, this is not the one.

To anyone who has watched Southpark's Britney Spears episode you will know the parallel that Matt Stone & Trey Parker drew between our modern culture glorifying and then using celebrities up as an ancient sacrifice to the gods to ensure a good harvest. This movie does the same- by creating a reality TV type scenario that the main characters walk into. But it takes it a step further, in showing how the horror movie clichés (joker, jock, slut, nerd and virgin) can be seen as a more elaborate version of this kind of sacrifice ; and horror is the genre that supplies an endless stream of blood to satisfy this ancient need.

But the characters are so much more than clichés- in the movie they actually are noticing how they are falling/being cast into these roles and being less and less human, less and less themselves. That in itself has me tipping my hat to the writers. Joss Whedon you clever beast!

As to it not being pure horror- that's the point of the movie. I was enjoying the commentary that the narrative made while it developed and because i didn't know where it was heading and why things were happening, it kept me on edge and interested to the very end.

At one point I was sitting there thinking - wow this movie must have been so much fun to make! It was definitely fun to watch.

To each his own, I guess

Being frightened is a peculiar emotion. I'm sure there are hundreds of psychological and philosophical theories and papers out there dealing with this subject. We could say that "scary" is generally a negative adjective, but you can't argue with the thrill we feel in situations as such, be it a ghost story, a roller-coaster ride or even witnessing a car crash. Horror movies, I guess, are one of the safest ways of experiences these emotions.

There are different methods of going about making a successful horror movie, successful in the sense that they manage to effectively scare the audience and please them at the same time.

This movie has the "scary" part hands down, the beginning of the movie is a mix of calm scenarios intersected by sudden scenes changes, usually accompanied by music. I guess its a good setup, and they managed to glue my eyes to the screen. But as the story unfolds, it becomes more and more idiotic, with the last scene completely destroying any chance the movie had of being even remotely thought-provoking.

If you're interested in the horror genre, I'm sure you can find much better options.

A movie you have to watch at least two times.

To be honest, the first time I didn't get why anyone would love this movie. It was fun to watch and sometime in the middle I got what it was about. (didn't know anything beforehand, that's how I like to watch movies) I really like Joss Whedon's style and this movie screamed of it. That is why I kinda liked it the first time.

After a year or so I tought why not give it a second go? As I remember it was kinda fun... And than the magic happened! Everything fell into place. Now that I know what was going on from the first minute this movie just got so much better I can't describe. I LOVED every minute of it. It was a whole new experience.

This is a movie you HAVE to watch at least 2 times to fully enjoy it. So on the first go I gave it a 6/10, now it's a 10/10... So I'm gonna average it at 9/10 :)
