  1.  True story, only the names, facts and locations are faulse!

    Posted: 

    I'm well aware of this house in Chequerfield estate Pontefract.
    I too live very close, but as stated in the first review this is definatly not filmed on the Chequerfield estate as probably the equipment would have been stolen. In the film it's a girl who was subjected to the demonic attacks but in real life it was a Boy who should remains ameless and what really happend is far more shocking than what is shown in the film. The film looks cheap and descends into farce during the climatic exorcism. I wanted to like this but also found myself laughing on how predictable the movie is.
    If the producers wanted to make a scary film set in Chequerfield they should have filmed it outside the working mens club at closing time..... now that would have been scary.

  3.  BEST FILM OF 2011!

    Outstanding acting, Great story, Massive emotional punch. Bone crunching fights. Brilliant movie!

  4.  I totally agree with MovieAddict & gspot80's reviews!

    Posted: 

    The above reviewers in my title have totally hit the nail on the head in there description of this bound to be cult classic. It's not for the action junky, but for a mean and moody thriller for the lovers of the late 70's and early 80's no frills action movies this is a fantastic retro fitted flash back. It almost got the full five stars from me, but due to the pace sag in the character build up it just mist out. It may not have the laws of physics defying action of Fast Five, But never the less Drive is one of those films that will live on to sit along Manhunter, Driver, Bullet and Vanishing Point as cult classic's long after The Fast and Furious have long since been forgotten.
    Watch it, then re-watch it to fully take in this neon drenched elctro- pop classic.

  5.  Calm down, it's only a movie!

    In reflection to Mayer101's insightful previous in depth over exagerated review of "The Worst Film Iv Ever Seen !! The Sharks Are So FAkee .. film so boring .. not even one bit scary .. !! short film ... !!... wish i could give it not one star rating.. i give it 0/10 !!!"
    I suggest they stop hyperventilating take some deep breaths and realise it's only a dumb film. True the film is not a good movie, but the film does not aim to be anything higher than a good time for the teenage viewer who was not brought up on the far, far, superior, intelligent and all time classic Jaws. Who will say that the Shark in Jaws looks rubber and fake, At least the Shark in Jaws looks more realistic and wasn't brought to life via a Zx Spectrum. The ones who'll appreciate Shark Night are probably think the Final Destination movies are high art. It's a dumb film, there is no getting around the fact, but with a short running time and the movie does what it says It's got sharks and it's at night... mostly and it's in pretty rubbish 3D. With useless CGI and the acting even worse, but it's a good time brain turned off guilty pleasure.If you want some so bad it's actually enjoyable if you are hammered entertainment, that can be laughed at as well as along with, then give it a go.
    But that doesn't mean you'll be remembering in "T" minus two hours or when you sober up.
    It's no Jaws, It's no Piranha 3D, It's not even as good as Deep Blue Sea, but I doubt it ever set it's goals that high in the first place!

  6.  OMG... It's pathetic!

    Posted: 

    I did not mind the first film, New Moon bored me, Eclypse was very good, but this was pathetic, so bad I was laughing at it. Of course the Twiharders will give it five starts, even if it was a blank screen with the Twilight title above it they would love it. All that happens is talking and mind numbing laughable situations and of course they'll hate me for saying it. The good news is that Part 2 has not got a hard act to follow to be better.
    It's two hours of nothingness, a big two hour black hole.

  7.  Fangs for the memories!

    I remember my son bringing home the original Fright Night when it was released on Video all those years back. Since then I have always concidered Fright Night as the best vampire film ever made. Like the review below I too was un-easy about re-making this 80's classic, but I thought I would give it a go and make my own mind up, as I too have no problems with remakes or Reboots as long as they don't ruin the good name of the original.
    Thankfully Fright Night 2011 never hardly puts a foot wrong that balance of horror and comedy is pitch perfect, the new cast are great, although I still think Chris Sarandon in the original Fright Night intimidated and charmed better than the updated Colin Farrell version, but Farrell is having a blast. David Tennant is brilliant as Peter Vincent as he does a side splitting impression of Russell Brand. the suspence is white knuckle stuff, check out the scene where Charlie desperatly tries to rescue one of Jerry's victims. Although the Night Club and seduction scenes are not a patch on the original and it lacks the fantastic wolf sequence that made the original such a classic and has an over relience of CGI, the tweaks to the original story almost compensate.
    The strange thing is this more graphic violent update carries the 15 certificate, but the 1985 now tamer original still has the 18 certificate. How times have changed.
    All in all this remake is very welcome and mops the floor with most other updates, Fright Night 2011 is one of the most enjoyable horror films in years. Even my wife enjoyed it and we are both in our 60's!

  9.  Outstanding!

    Posted: 

    I have to agree with both MovieAddict and Gertmint for their reviews below, both have hit the nail onthe head.
    This is without a doubt the best film of the year. It might not have the explosions of Transformers 3 or the Wizard on Wizaerd duels of the final Harry Potter, but it does have more heart than any of the summer blockbusters combined. To call it a Sci-Fi monster movie is an injustice. This is a film like they used to make before special effects took over. With perfect performances by all, this is a film that is without a doubt a modern classic.
    Outstanding!

  10.  IS IT JUST ME BUT..........

    Posted: 

    I'm not being negative for the sake of it, and I know everybody on the face of this planet loves this movie apart from me but, I can't help but hateing this film, I like ABBA just as much as the next person and have fond memories of the "Fit" blonde one wearing those tight shiny leggings, but I can't see the appeal of watching a bunch of menapausal women trying to mime badly to shoe horned in classics pop tunes. Even Pearce Brosnan has a warble at SOS to horrific results. The direction is inept and ends up looking like an episode of Wish You Were Here, I half expected Judith Chambers to pop up. The plot is pathetic and the overall effect is jaw droppingly cringe inducing. I know it's supposed to froffy campy fun, but for me it seemed like audio torture.
    This will no doubt make me puplic enemy #1 with the legion of fans, but I feel better getting it off my chest.
    You can all disagree with me know!
