    Completely disagree. This is a brilliant, ballsy movie that merges two forms of "horror" - old-fashioned movie horror & modern, all-too real horror - via two different stories, whilst meditating on the nature of film in these changing times. Karloff & Bogdanovich play themselves (pretty much), and the final sequence, in which a drive-in movie literally has the power to kill its audience, is incredible. This thriller is a seriously impressive debut for the director. 8 years 3 months ago

    The worst part was knowing those people in the cars were just sitting ducks for his angry bullits. The tension that built up before the first shot was unbearable. 6 years 4 months ago
