    "Popcorn" is an oddly titled horror film, and even though I can't quite recommend it, there actually is a lot more to like here that we've come to expect from the genre. The movie clearly has a love of old horror films, and the behind the scenes stuff early on really is quite interesting. It's an obvious nod to the great showman William Castle.

    Watching these students rig a theater for their festival was a lot of fun. I wish…

    do you like your horror movies full of corn? as in corny as fuck? then this is for you, it was certainly for me too. i really enjoyed this slasher flick, from the ridiculous music montages to the overly dramatic and awesome psycho killer, it was all golden. highly recommend this one if you want to have a fun time with a horror movie.

    The year is 1991, slashers are practically dead, but this cheeky horror homage is one of the best in the genre from this date. It's not too quirky, but it has fun with its murder setup. I wouldn't give this top terrain at all, but can a film with Jill Schoelen, Dee Wallace and Yvonne from Dream Child be anything less than a good time? Goes well with... popcorn! :P

    You will believe a clumsily self-aware horror film whose original director was replaced by an actor from Porky's, whose script throws in unexplained supernatural bullshit in the form of letters leaping from a movie theater marquee, whose idea of character-building dialogue involves some college-aged idiot spouting off unfunny sub-Armondian nonsense about Police Academy 5 having more merit than any of "Inguhmar" Bergman's "smorgasborgs," whose death tableaus involve explosive knock-out-gas pellets dropped into toilets (in a toilet stall that locks from…

    Popcorn is a decent horror film. It has pretty good make-up and a passable storyline. At one point there is a scene in it that takes place in the movie theatre and the lights go out due to a power outage and while someone goes to sort out the light situation, a reggae band starts to perform for the audience in the meantime (as it usually does at my local movie house) using their electric…

    A meta horror film that came out before Scream! Unfortunately, it is not as polished as that one. But, the killer is a bit more believable and understandable in his madness.

    A group of college students host an all night horror movie marathon as a fund raiser for their film department. Seems reasonable, right? The only problem is that there seems to be a presumed dead director of an avante garde haunted one of the students. Is he the murderer?…

    This movie is awesome. A LOT more fun and entertaining than I was expecting. I wanted this old theater to exist, and I wanted to attend this silly, all-night horror festival even if people were dying behind the scenes. The campy, B-movies they were showing, (which were made just for this movie, a movie-within-a-movie sort of thing), were so amazingly bad on purpose that they looked like a ton of fun to watch. And the second one, with the man…

    A very trashy horror film on the fallout from the 80's, 'Popcorn' does exactly what it says on the tin. It isn't terrifically well thought out, it is ham acted, and the deaths are completely ridiculous. But I expected all of this from the film, so that it the enjoyment factor.

    You can see that this film influenced the likes of 'Scream 4', and I can understand why it has achieved cult status. The deaths were well thought out and…

    Uneven and goofy slasher that is way more more ambitious than most and sort of suffers as a result. A lot of the humor fell flat and the story was kind of confusing... but still a lot of fun. Lots of creative kills and the premise/setting is a blast!

    Surprisingly watchable! A charismatic villain with a kind-of-relatable traumatic past, inventive kills (like a wheelchair electrocution and man-sized robo-mosquito stabbing), and some old school horror movie love set this movie aside from many other slashers.

    For the most part, characters act in a sensible, albeit numbskull teenage, manner. There's no bumbling in the dark and asking, "Who's there?" The two token horn dog idiots get forcibly removed from the movie theater…
