    Manages to weave horror, humor, romance and drama together pretty deftly. Some very memorable sequences. Ignore the inane sequel. 7 years 5 months ago

    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 2 months ago
