It's a good film, plenty of Barker imagery done well... Saw it last November. Made me jump in quite a few places.

They've already started work on DREAD from the Books of Blood and also another chapter from the books as well

Yeah it looks like this movie has gone down the MMT route but I'll gladly blind buy this movie on BD. I saw the trailer and it looked good. I'm glad it's not getting shafted and is going to DVD and Blu.

I saw this was on SyFy last night, did anyone get to see it. I unfortunately caught it during the last 45 minutes and it looked interesting. I am really jonesing for some blu-ray horror movies, so any suggestions would be appreciated.

Saw this flick this past weekend with my wife. It's pretty gothic in style and reminds me allot of the sense of dread that was so evident in the first Hellraiser film. the acting is pretty top notch and the set design, effects and sound design as pretty great. The only downside is the lull in the second act - it slows things down allot and we really started to lose interest. However, the third act is great and the ending is pretty awesome. Overall, this is a great entry into the pantheon of adult horror - I recomend it.
