I'm not sure how i have only recent seen this movie, i feel cheated that it isn't on my list of films that freaked me out as a kid.
Watching it now i can see how freaked out i would have been, and how rewatching it would have tapped into that experience, just like watching The Shining or Amityville.
Oh the waste!
Still even now it is a genuinely creepy movie with excellent special effects, CGI has made the whole gooey skeleton industry plain lazy.
I avoided reading or seeing anything about this movie before its release.
I'm a Whedon fan so I expected i would like it but knew also that i could be going in to watch pretty much anything, that it could go anywhere, it did and then some :)
I'm only waiting now to see what he does next, waiting in a hiding from any info or trailers about what he might do next kind of way....
