I was saddened to hear you dislike this movie so much. I saw it back in the summertime, at Fantasia Fest in Montreal. There was a wonderful crowd there, as well as a marvelous short that played before Re-Animator, which really got people pumped for the flick. Because of this mix, I had a freakin' blast watching the movie, and I was greatly anticipating purchasing it on DVD. But after hearing so many bad reviews, I'm thinking that my first viewing was a fluke, and that when I'd watch this thing on DVD, that I would then also grow to hate it.
