We saw this at a midnight screening at Sundance, and what a blast. The effects are excellent, but more importantly, the images are so disturbing, they run chills down your spine. On top of everything, the sound and music are absolutely perfect, incredibly detailed with terrific depth. Some scenes are even in 3-d!!
I hope they put the time and effort into ensuring the dvd quality is up to par.
This movie involves a group of friends looking for one of their own who turned up missing in an amusement park. This movie has everything for the perfect horror film -- lots of creepy clowns, disturbing and deformed people, and that creeping imagery that seems available only in asian films (Ringu, Audition (Odition)).
My only complaint is the editors did not seem to put a lot of effort in to the subtitles -- sometimes a literal translation does not work. When you friends are getting dismembered, the subtitle should not read "Cheer Up."
This movie is terrific. If you have a chance to see it in a theater -- go! If only on DVD, then crank up your stereo, and turn down your lights!
