When the older man get his leg bitten by an alligator as the tour boat is sinking, one of the girls makes the comment that with his blood in the water, the area will become an alligator feeding frenzy.

Old School, NO! but one of the worst movie's i've seen!
7 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

If this stupid movie is supposedly refreshing and old school, how far back are they talking about? It was nothing like the ones I loved in the 70's & 80's. I thought Rob Zombie's Halloween remake was the worst movie i've seen this year until I saw this garbage! I walked out after the first hour it was so bad and I never do that. Even Robert Englund and Tony Todd were not enough to keep it interesting.They must have either been desperate for a paycheck or paid a lot of money for their small roles.I am shocked at all the praise and positive comments about this movie.It is pretty sad that anyone found this retarded movie good. Adam Green your movie sucks!There is nothing creepy or impressive about it. You should just direct porn since you are so obsessed with womens breasts.Some of the women in the audience looked uncomfortable.I lost count how many times I saw tities! You have no talent as a writer or directer. From the embarrassingly bad 1st scene, I new the rest was gonna be just as bad.The homophobic dialog wasn't really necessary either,but then Adam Green also wrote the script. The cast of this horrible movie were ugly as hell and couldn't act worth sh*t.The desperate to get laid black guy "Marcus" trying to be funny was painful to watch, and the annoying Chinese tour guide "Shawn" with the fake Southern accent was enough to make you wanna slit your wrists it was so bad. Some idiot described this trash as the next icon of horror and actually had the nerve to say it was scary.What is scary and truly frightening is how many people liked it. There is just not any good American horror movies anymore.Once in awhile something good and decent does comes along though,but movies like Hatchet have turned the genre in to a joke.
