I'm not kidding.

This is a fun monster movie...and the less you know, the better it is. It may be the perfect monster movie. I *really* liked it.


I got to see a special screening of this film earlier this week. The movie is like a cross between Godzilla and The Blair Witch Project...except much better than either one.

Since the movie is filmed from a video camera held by one of the characters (like Blair Witch)....expect a bumpy ride. There is a lot of running and spinning. A security guard said 16 people ran to the lobby to vomit during the movie. A friend of mine had to get up and leave because he was nauseated. All the people came back to finish watching, though. It is recommended you sit further back in the theater to lessen the impact (or closer if you want the ultimate experience!). I didn't have any problems with it, and I sat about 6 rows from the front.

Oh! And make sure you see this in a theater with good sound...it makes a huge difference! The sound is really well done (props to Skywalker Sound!) and will make you feel like you are there if you go to a good theater.

Here is the teaser (which is essentially the first 5 minutes of the movie):

My friend said his daughter puked in the movie theater while watching this.


I want to go see it but no one wants to go with me :( and I don't want to throw up into a strangers lap. That's what friends are for j/k


We didn't get sick, but my husband did get into a fist fight when we went to see it. Some people were talking, and since you said sound was important, David asked them to be quiet. The guy started cussing, I went to get the manager, David got in the guy's row, the guy threw a punch, and the fight began. When I got back with the manager, I didn't know what had happened. I couldn't believe they'd gotten into an actual fight. It was crazy. The manager insisted on giving us our money back and letting us stay for the next show for free.
It was good movie, once we finally got to watch it.

Wow! I *hate* all the cell phones, talking, eating during a movie...maybe I can borrow David the next time I see a film.
