just saw this movie last night. my friend is a huge horror movie buff, and to boot he doesn’t usually watch foriegn films, but said that this was one of the best horror movies he’d seen in years. It’s true it’s very atmospheric, great cinematography and composition, decent story, everything is believable. I even liked the ending, though it had been done several times in the last few years. But my problem is the continuity problems with it after you throw in the ending.
Like were did the van come from? The girl did not drive there, she was driven.
She also had some gear for the killings, how did she get them?
Why was the killer shown with the decapitated head (one of my favorite opening scenes from a horror movie by the way) when the killer was the girl, and she was in the car with the other girl?
What did she chase down, or get chased down by? Did she just unreasonably drive her van into a tree due to her imagination?
Sure there could be some explainations for these things, but none are really what I would consider to be good ones.
END of Spiolers…
But like I said as a movie that you just sit down and watch, without analysing (force of habit, I’m afraid) it’s a really good movie, and I look forward to Aja’s remake of Hills have eyes, even though the idea should be blasphamy, I think he might be able to pull it off.
