    I wanted to like it and appreciated the effects, dream sequences and use of the undead but I found it neither funny (thanks to the very stilted delivery of the lead) nor scary (thanks to the lack of any tension during any of the attack sequences). 4 years 6 months ago

    Manages to weave horror, humor, romance and drama together pretty deftly. Some very memorable sequences. Ignore the inane sequel. 7 years 9 months ago

    I was really disappointed: despite a couple of good humoristic moments, I found the movie uninteresting, long and absolutely unscary. Just not good. 5 years 8 months ago
