    I'd never heard of Popcorn before, which is weird because it's a hell of a lot of fun. A bunch of film students set up a film festival at their local picture house showing gimmick-laden films, a al the films of William Castle, but it turns out the theatre was the site of a tragedy years before when an eccentric film director murdered his family on stage! Now minus the calamity and murder that will inevitably happen, doesn't that film…

    When a group of film students take over an old cinema for a one-night horror marathon, they soon discover that all the killings are not happening purely on the screen.

    Here we have a 90's horror movie, that on paper, should be a cult classic, but in reality is a bit of a mixed bag. The story starts off with a group of annoying misfits trying to earn some money, which is something any horror fan has seen countless times…

    Popcorn is the sort of horror movie that could have been a cult classic. Unfortunately, whilst it certainly has its moments - mostly when riffing on old schlock horror flicks - it just falls short with a stuttering main storyline. Released in 1991 it is part slasher and part postmodern B-movie homage as a psychotic killer, who impersonates his victims via prosthetic masks, kills at an all-night horror marathon. Could the murderer be a crazed filmmaker who killed his family…

    This is a really fun horror film for film fans. It's always a great idea to set a slasher film in an abandoned movie theatre, especially if the film club from the local High School is putting on a Movie Marathon, and the mysterious memorabilia collector Dr. Mnesyne is on hand to help. On top of that one of the students is trying to adapt her trippy nightmares into a screenplay and there's that strange reel of film the students…

    If you go into this movie expecting a straight-faced slasher replete with lots of gory kills chances are you'll be disappointed. Instead "Popcorn" is a fun, campy send-up of the horror genre. The plot centres around a bunch of film students holding a late-night horror festival in an old cinema and this central theme, rather than the actual slasher plot, is where the film really shines.

    Most elements of this film are over-the-top, almost to the extent of parody but…

    Not as good a I remember, since it used to be one of my favorite horror movies, I'm just really disappointed and surprised at the same time, when I started to watch this I was expecting to pass a good time watching it, but I actually got bored a few times, it's still a cool movie, though. There is an insanely good use of FX, maybe that's the best part about the movie.

    It's basically about a group of students…

    When I saw this film when I was younger, I gave it a thumbs down. We all do things we're ashamed of. Years later, I recognize POPCORN is a miracle of horror filmmaking, especially given that it was the product of two directors, Mark Herrier and the uncredited Alan Ormsby, who was replaced three weeks into shooting.

    Except for some scenes that suggest the killer having supernatural powers, POPCORN is otherwise a coherent, incredibly enjoyable treat, about a scarred killer…

    Popcorn is quite a fun flick with a great (and pretty damn implausible) villain and a superb gimmick in the shape of the three fake movies that are showing at the cinema where the mayhem takes place.

    I just want to know one thing: did the reggaeband bring their own generator? How were they able to perform after the power went out?!

    I thought this was an Orville Redenbacher bio-pic. Spent 2.00 for this turd. Why Amazon has it listed for no less than 57.00 used is a travesty of Total Recall 2012 proportions. Do not watch and for god sakes do not buy it either. The Orville Redenbacher movie would have been better.
