Way, way too much blood. There was too much people losing body parts and maybe two places that made me jump. I was very disappointed. I should have spent my money to go see scary movie 5.

I had such high hopes for this film. It was a huge disappointment. It was gory, but not scary like the original. The original is a must see for true horror fans. This one is not worth the cinema ticket price. Wait for dvd or streaming. It was claiming to be one of the scariest movies ever. The original is, but this remake is not. In my opinion The Hills Have Eyes, A Serbian Film, and Texas Chainsaw are much scarier. There is a difference in a gory film and a suspenseful or scary film. This film is gory. A Serbian Film and Texas Chainsaw are scary, suspenseful, and gory. If you have never seen the original this one might be scary.

Yes, it's overly bloody and gory, but that's what horror fans like. It makes you jump plenty of times and while it is a remake of the cult classic, it's far better than every other horror film that has come out in the past few years that claims to be original. Go check it out.
Definitely worth seeing in the theaters. In the middle of the day. So it's sunny when you get out.

The movie was so bad. I had to walk out about halfway through. Plot is to predictable. Acting was too much of 60's b movie. I would not recommend this movie to anyone. Save your money.

I had high hopes for the latest incarnation of this movie. Really, I did. In today's age of "borrowing" ideas from the old to add to the new (*read as plagiarizing*), I entertained hopes this particular movie might present a new and innovative take on an old classic. I was at least partially wrong.
The original movie incorporated an incredibly terrifying "flying camera" tactic that up until that point had never been utilized in a horror movie, and in that respect, the new movie did not disappoint. What did fail to meet my expectations was the almost immediacy in which the stars of this movie began getting killed off. There was no real build up of tension or feelings of "Oh my god, here comes something bad, but when will it strike?" that is expected of today's modern horror films. Ok, so maybe the Hitchcock school of film making has been so overused since the original ED was released that maybe I was hoping for a new concept on this old classic. Either way, this film failed to scare.
