I wasn't expecting much going into the film, but the prologue was quite striking with it's 3D transfer of highlights from the 1974 original (sometimes I thought I was looking at original footage, sometimes modern reenactments--I wasn't really sure).There's an hour of pretty gory, lifeless storytelling about four people travelling to Newt, Texas to reclaim the legacy of the heroine, but the last hour is the stuff of cult movie legend. Some opportunities for spectacular 3D effects are missed, but overall, the 3D is pretty good and worth the extra cash. Overall, it's an inconsistent film of highs and lows: at it's worst, it's mind-numbingly dull; at it's best it's very everything you want from a horror film.

The acting, the plot, the ending...all of it was wrong. The only thing good about this film was the occasional 3D effect. Other than that, it was a complete waste of time.

1st: Don't go to see this in 3D if you are a huge 3D movie fan, because you'll leave disappointed. Just save a few dollars and go and see the regular one.
2nd: There definitely was some nice eye candy in this movie to keep your attention.
3rd: The blood, guts, and gore was awesome
4th: I actually liked the way the movie ended, IT WAS SO UNEXPECTED!
5th: The primary underlying theme of this movie is KARMA, so after watching it, take a second and think about how what you do in life can ripple and impact someone else' s life. Simple, treat others well, as you should want to be treated.

Don't waste your $ or your time. Movie made no sense, and the plot made no sense. The ending stunk too. Total garbage. I would not even rent or buy the DVD.

Really didn't think it was worth the $18.00 a pop to see (in NYC). A couple of good 3D effects, but there were many boring parts in the movie. My husband even fell asleep twice and we saw the 1:20 pm show. The last one was by far the best one.
