While the film flopped in cinemas, it has since become a classic among horror fans, largely due to it's homage to William Castle, who is known for creating theater gags such as the ones depicted in Popcorn. See more »
When the letters fly off of the movie theater, and land around Suzanne, only a "Y" flies off in the first shot. When it goes back to the movie theater sign, a lot more letters are missing. In addition, the "P" from the word 'Plus' is missing in one shot, but in the next shot they do a close-up of the "P" flying off, even though it was previously missing. See more »
A group of film students decide to show a film festival of horror movies. Everything seems fine until the students start dying.
This is one of my all time favorite movies. I own this movie on VHS and DVD and the DVD version is ten times better. I would highly recommend this movie for anyone who enjoys cheesy horror films. In my book this movie is an A+. If you enjoy this film, I recommend that you see Tobe Hoopers (Director of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre") "The Funhouse". The acting in booth of these films is both entertaining and funny and parts of both of these movies are extremely creepy. I especially found "Popcorn" creepy because I was once a movie theater projectionist and we also showed an all-night film festival of horror movies a couple of years ago on Halloween. Anyone who has ever worked or been in a movie theater projection booth will know what I am talking about. Once again I highly recommend this movie!!
