    Stitches (Blu-ray / DVD) Review - Dread Central

    If you're looking for something a little different, I can't recommend Stitches enough; while it may not necessarily be reinventing the wheel or anything, everyone involved has gone above and beyond in delivering a truly inventive old-school horror/comedy that features some of the bloodiest and most crazy awesome kills I’ve seen in some time. If you're a fan of quirky and offbeat horror humor, put Stitches at the top of your rental list immediately; just a wonderful and surprising film all-around.
    Can't wait to watch this!!!!

    Won't go into detail till you guys take the spoiler reins off, but EVIL DEAD was somewhere in between the soul crushing disappointment of emmerichs Godzilla and Burton's Planet of the Apes. Not bloody, scary, or fun and just filled with great, yet undeveloped ideas. Death by stupid rules in full effect. PASS.

    Peeps should just pass on the remake and host a pizza and beer party and watch the original, but no one listens to me!

    I HAD to see it. Had such hope. I even tried to ask myself repeatedly, 'Am I judging this too harshly', 'were my expectations too high'? No. It JUST WAS NOT GOOD. If you want to do your own take...then do it. Don't ape Sam Raimi's swirling thru the sound system voices and late night swamp cam, AND POORLY. I mean, you want to do the tricks, tech has advanced in huge strides...why are they pale imitations and not improvements? Or...did you want to mute them so you don't get accused of trying to go slapsticky like Raimi. If so, then why even do it? Like I said, not going to discuss spoilers but there is a better story/reason for them being in a dilapidated cabin in the woods than Raimi's, butif you are only going to throw random plot points out without developing them or attempting to tie them together and integrate them into the storyline...why bother? And no...this is not NC-17 stuff. Maybe I am jaded, but none of the effects are all that...either over-the-top or even particularly engaging/interesting. This movie is not named Evil Dead(and it really could have been, other than a loose tie to the Necronomicon it's pretty standalone) and NOBODY cares. You have to care about your characters in order to feel any dramatic weight when they get ripped to shreds and that...ain't...here. The audience was mostly bored, waiting for something, anything that had a spark of the wild creativity that the original(which is not a perfect movie by any means) had. Just a product of our times. Overhyped repackage of a classic movie that is meant to capitalize on the young audience who have heard the original discussed in reverence. In the end, my bag of overly salted popcorn had more to it than this empty exercise.

    There is no joy in Mudville Lags. I take ZERO delight in my negative appraisal. If anyone has been crowing about this its me. And it makes me look like a fool yet again to have my can't miss pick turn out to be a wet turd. I tried as I was watching it to force it down like an 8 year old looking at a full plate of beets and brussel sprouts. I just couldn't do it. REGARDLESS of how dumb it makes me look, I have to call it the way I see it. I hope your experience is different. I wish mine had been.
