    I for one am psyched for this movie. Both trailers convey an intensity that looks crazy good. I can't wait.

    I have a friend who loves the original, but refuses to see this one b/c the main character is not Ash. Oh well. His loss. I think it's going to be incredible.
    Most wanted: Blast attack, Entrapta, Lodar, Peekablue, Flutterina, and Tung Lashor

    I never said they didn't need to tell a good story, but movies like Final Destination and Saw work to see how creative they can be with the deaths and traps and stuff. The Shining and The Thing are both prime example of excellent story telling while also having some gruesome death scenes.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

    Agreed.

    IMO, the best films are the ones that hold a mystery. They are the ones that have your own mind scare the **** out of you!

    Blood for bloods sake, IMO, its meaningless.

    If I wanna watch something really scary...I turn on the news!

    For me personally, it depends on what mood I'm in at the time; I don't necessarily always need some deep and complex plot to be drawn into a horror movie, however, it has to have a redeeming quality or qualities, like having a really good vibe, amazing visuals and/or actors who give amazing performances. Sometimes I'm sold on just one of those things.
