That was one of my fave movies as a kid-I watched it again a few years ago as an adult and still loved it. Great film :)

Final Destination 5 would have to rate as one of the most entertaining films I've watched this year. Not Oscar material at all but lots of fun delivered at breakneck pace. Normally I'm watching the clock waiting for something like this to end but the film just didn't give me a chance to get bored. Wish I had made it out to the theatre for this one now.
I also preferred the second film over the first :) I gave up on the series after part 3 that was the one I really hated and felt didn't offer anything decent. Maybe I'll finally watch parts 4 and 5. in the mood for some escapist horror this xmas.

You can skip the 4th, it's the worst part, IMO but agree with Elvis & V about the new one...FD5, the story was good with a nice little surprise at the end.

Just watched Hostel III (2011).

It had a slow start but it soon built up into a nice little torture horror.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1255916/

The performances were okay and there are enough twists and turns to keep the viewer interested. I thought it was at least better than the first two Hostel movies which bored me rigid.

In the end, I gave it 6/10. A little high but I was entertained after all. :D

Hostel Part III



I enjoyed the story of this one more than the previous films. The characters were more likeable and it just lacked the pretension of the previous films. I loved how this one embraced it's trashier aspects and didn't try to hide that fact with the bullshit faux political commentary of Roth's films. Nice to see Scott Spiegel behind the camera again for a genre piece (which was my main reason for watching) but unfortunately this isn't another Intruder. Bit of a shame they obviously cut corners budget-wise because the film does suffer as a result. Shoddy effects and a straight to DVD look prevented this from being the strong entry to the franchise as it could've been.

Great zombie-ish horror/comedy.
It's got a fairly different vibe and storyline to a lot of movies of this kind.
If you like films along the lines of "Dead Heat" and "Fido", this one feels at home in the same category.
It was a lot more entertaining and of higher quality than I'd expected.
I feel like I should recommend this film to zombie fans who are after something a little different.
