Watched (most of) The Serpent and the Rainbow last night. Very good stuff. Nice different take on zombie films.

Not a huge fan of the director, but that one is definitely my favorite.

I really believe that Wes Craven is one of the most unique individuals to ever step behind the camera, but I can understand people not enjoying his work. I find it fascinating the way he helped build a genre and then subsequently tore it down so beautifully through both New Nightmare and the Scream franchise.

That being said, you know, I've never actually counted him among my favorite directors, for whatever reason, despite how often I talk about my admiration for him.

But yes, this movie was super good. I'm really disappointed that I fell asleep for about 20 minutes of it, since it had such a short run time to begin with, but the slow build creepy factor was really what sold it. It reminded me a lot of another movie, but I can't seem to think of which one it was now. Some aspects did remind me of Candyman, which, take that as a good or a bad as you will, but I think that's one of the most unsettling films I've ever seen.

Another thing I really appreciated about this movie was, relatively speaking, there was so little gore. Up to this point you're talking about a man who had made two movie squarely aimed at shocking people's sensibilities and created a slasher franchise. The reserved way that he went about telling this story was fantastic. And of course, that slight sense of realism, that this kinda really happened, was also a huge selling point.

So when did Jason Statham suddenly become too old or whatever to be The Transporter, and more importantly why did they have to replace him with Chris Martin?

it looks exactly like hot garbage. I'm guessing the original doesn't have quite the resemblance.

Even the title is terrible.
