    Weird teen schlocker that recasts Charlie Manson as the Phantom of the Opera, with a 'save the rec centre' kind of vibe laid on top to spice it up. So 80s, yet so '91.

    I liked the fake movies that were in this. Having it take place in a theater was great and reminded me of working at cinemas.
    However, the killer guy was a little too lonely and talkative.

    Toby didn't even have it that bad, he was such a drama queen.

    My #1 all time favorite slasher movie. It came out in the 90's at a time when the slasher boom has run it's course and it still found a way to become self aware a full 10 years before scream did it. A way more original movie than it gets credit for.

    This is one of the most boring films that I've ever seen. No, I am not kidding. Yikes!

    Better than Midnight Movie Massacre, which has a similar plot.

    I didn't realise this is from 1991. Good cast. Poor movie.

    The meta elements within Popcorn aren’t new to the horror genre, but they’re perhaps the most fun and tongue-in-cheek. It’s not as bloody or in-your-face as Scream a couple years later, but what it lacks in gore it makes up for in inventiveness. Popcorn’s story of a killer running amok in a theater of horrors is entertaining when viewed through an early 90s lens; yet horrifying when viewed in the present.

    Lo bueno de lo malo que tiene Popcorn, es que su intento de asustarte se cae desde el inició, en parte porque con todo, esta llena de lugares comúnes, por lo que lo único que queda es disfrutarla, y vaya que se disfruta; así sabiendo de antemano que no vas a sentir terror ni angustia, la gozas desde una zona de confort, y de verdad que ganas de estar en ese festival en el que todos los…

    El problema de Popcorn, si uno insistiera en encontrarle un problema, es que todas sus ideas padres las ha hecho alguien más y mejor: ¿El asesino suelto en el cine, cuyas acciones se reflejan en pantalla? Angustia. ¿El homenaje a los gimmicks de William Castle? Matinee. ¿Cara quemada que puede usar otras caras? Darkman. ¿Los jóvenes cinéfilos eruditos? Scream. ¿Muertes elaboradas tipo Saw? Pues Saw.

    Ahora, si me preguntan a mí, creo que ver todo eso mezclado en una sola…
