Quotes

Montag the Magnificent: What are you afraid of? Exposure. We swim in a shark-infested cesspool, terrified that at any moment things will nip at us. Oh. Ha ha. They will nip at us, and they are hungry. They are those closest to us, our best friends. Our girlfriends. They are us.

Evil that got under my skin.
31 October 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

And evil might not be the right word for it. This movie had an almost morbid fascination on me, I just finished watching it for the third time in a row in order to crack the not-so-accessible plot. Man, I lost my sleep over this. It wasn't happening from a long, long time. And be aware, this movie is FAR from perfect. Direction is somewhat sloppy at times, and so is the acting. But not only this is a remake that manages to achieve the unthinkable (surpass the original movie and actually add a whole lot of depth to it), for me it's been a truly hallucinating trip, one that stuck with me like few others in the past. In my humble opinion, this movie takes one of the most interesting premises in horror movies and manages to develop it with taste and twists that seem to be endless; some of the plot elements may seem unsubstantiated, some may feel rushed, and many moviegoers will just lose their will to follow the movie's overly convoluted storyline, since this is one of those films that REQUIRES a second viewing to be fully appreciated (maybe even a third one). Did you ever play games like Silent Hill and Rule of Rose? I did, and loved every bit of their obscure way of telling a story. If you did like games like those, too, as well as other movies with a taste for toying with your brains and darkest emotions, go see this movie NOW. (and maybe come to the boards to discuss the plot, will ya?)

Overall, I find this to be an extremely fascinating experience. I don't know if it's because of some of the director's touches, the photography, Crispin Glover's exasperated way of acting or just the decadence that seems to permeate the whole thing, but this movie is still crawling deep under my skin.
