Goofs

(at around 20 mins) When Darry slips into the pipe, he should have landed on the two "packages" that the Creeper already threw down the pipe. Instead he lands on bare ground, with no sign of the packages nearby. See more »

Quotes

Trish: [Darry wants to climb down in the pipe leading to the Creeper's House of Pain] You know the part in scary movies when somebody does something really stupid, and everybody hates them for it? This is it.

good movie
15 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

Hearing mixed reviews about this movie I wasn't sure what to expect. I heard from several people that the first half was good, and that it went down hill from there. So how come an hour into the movie I found myself really enjoying it? The story was actually going good, it also was actually scary, scary like Halloween, not Scream. Which is a good change. Remember don't listen to what other people say, if you like scary movies, and no not to take them seriously go see this, it's worth the money.
