    DVD: How scary the film is isn't over-hyped. It is a scary little independent horror flick. Good believable characters. Excellent Carpenter-esque score. But the film falls apart in the final act with some logic issues and actions taken by the characters that somewhat intelligent human beings just wouldn't do. I look forward to seeing what this writer / director does next.

    DVD: Good heartwarming doc. Well written and edited by the director of DEAR ZACHARY, one of the best documentaries you never heard of.

    I was visiting Los Angeles in 1999 and saw this at a test screening - so I had no idea what movie I was about to see.
    That's my review. I wanted to explain why I saw this movie.

    Tarantino is so good that even Jamie Fox can't ruin this movie.
    Hilarious, bloody, intense, epic. Exactly what you'd expect from a slave movie / Western from Quentin Tarantino. I had high expectations and this film met them. Always a good year when there's a film from this writer/director to remind us how good movies can be - and should be.
