Hands down one of the best horror movies made...if you know what you're in for.
Let me preface with the fact that I rarely give a 10 to anything. As a person with 2 English degrees, I have sort of been formally trained to be overly critical. This movie is worth your time. I can't even count how many horror movies I have seen in my life, but this nearly tops them all. BUT, you have to be aware that you are going into a movie that is clearly designed to function as both a horror movie, but all also functions as mockumentary for both the horror genre and reality TV genre. So, yes, it does make fun of itself rather in the way Scream does or the later Friday the 13th movies do. And it's every second a delight. Also, it's truly watchable start to finish. Rarely can I make it through a full horror movie without fast forwarding a bit. I don't dig excessive gore and find it more revolting than frightening, but this movie doesn't rely on gore to be successful at giving scares. While it isn't a film that will give you nightmares for weeks, it is one that it thoroughly enjoyable on several levels and is very much worth a watch so long as you aren't expecting a flat out slasher.
