No mention of "Rope" in relation to the whole "illusion of a single take" thing?

I have the original UK BD import, but will rent this one. I heard it was awful, though.

Reminds me of Running Time with Bruce Campbell, the first movie I ever Netflixed. I always thought that the continuous shot idea was pretty cool.

I enjoyed that little film. I saw it on laserdisc, I think. That never did get an actual dvd release did it? Or was it an early dvd?

Running Time was was released on DVD by AnchorBay. I'm pretty sure it was not released on LD.

Gotcha. Yeah, it's been so long that I don't remember. All I remember is Bruce Campbell and it being touted as a "one shot" film.

I rarely have any disagreements with the extraordinary (and f***ing wonderfully detailed) analyses on this excellent site, but alas, I do have one here, and feel I should write about it. It's not nearly as big of a deal as my long-ass f-ing (can I swear here?; hope so) preface.

My issue is the audio analysis. The movie is below average, to say the very least. But watching it on Bly-ray (it WAS indeed a blind-buy, yes, I hate to admit it *smh*) was astonishing in terms of the sound quality. I'm a big movie fan, and horror films are a particularly favorite genre of mine. And I have to say that not since "The Strangers" have I been oh-so-very blown away by a horror soundtrack.

Every moment of whispering, pin-drop-waiting tension I experienced during "Silent House" was due to its sound mix.

I've also mentioned, in a private e-mail I sent about two weeks ago (full of praise, btw, for how absolutely brilliant this site it), that the audio analysis of "Scream 4" was, I felt, inaccurate.

These are minor, trivial issues that I'm bringing up here.

But I'd love to hear some feedback from anybody who'd like to give it.

Later,

K.
