Did You Know?


Several character names are references to classic Horror films. For instance, Doc Halloran is a mash-up of Danny Torrence's nickname (Doc) in "The Shining" (1980) and Dick Halloran from the same movie, and Jamie being a reference to Jamie Lee Curtis, who was the final girl in several slasher movies such as "Halloween" (1978) and "Prom Night" (1980).

Is this a joke?
25 September 2008 | by (Lyngby, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This movie was so bad I had to fast forward every time the stupid lead actor said his stupid lines. In the beginning, I was hope but I could see it was just some stupid Blair Witch - Man bites Dog rip-off - documentary with a lot of meta-references to other horror movies. Then I got another shock when I saw the rating here on IMDb. Come one, how about watching a real horror movie with a real plot - such as "I know what you did last summer". Anyway, there is nothing wrong with meta-references or so-called intertextuality but it just does not work in this movie. Nothing works in this movie. Robert Englund plays the role of the doctor who is against Myers in Halloween. He does this quite well but I feel sorry for him if he has actually seen the rest of the movie. Moreover, there are some cute young women in the film apparently some sort of reference to the Ted Bundy killings and other outrageous sex-crimes. Everything in this movie is just what horror should not be and indeed this is not a movie at all no more than my movies at you-tube are movies.
