I found this to be better than what I anticipated, mosty due to Lindy Booth's performance, but certainly not a keeper. Any word on what exactly is meant by 'Unrated' in this instance? Granted, this hasn't any substantial meaning nowadays, but if there's quite a bit added in perhaps I'll pick it up as a rental.

What the hell would they add in?

MAJOR SPOILERS
















Spoiler:
Except for the girl at the beginning and JBJ, it's not like anyone really died.

You're right, in that it will in all likelihood be a minute of utterly meaningless footage. I'd like to be proved wrong, but I seriously doubt it.

I would speculate that at one point the MPAA found some footage to be R worthy (of course I could be wrong and it might wind up as just expositional footage). I thought the initial trailers made this film to be more gnarly and vile, and it came as a surprise that the film was indeed a PG-13 film.

I wanted to check this out, but wanted to wait for the R-rated version. Hopefully we'll get some nice tidbits added back.

Is this actually a slasher film? The ads made it seem that way, but I'm hearing from others that it isn't.

I avoided it in theaters because, a PG-13 slasher sounds kind of lame. If it wasn't a slasher, the film might have made more money if it was advertised differently.

Spoiler:
It's not even a slasher film since it was already explained previously! They studio tried to make it appear like one,and even the director claimed how it was a 'smart slasher'. Well it's not a slasher film in the least. So don't let the previews fool you. On another forum,someone said it was "April Fools Day" for a new generation. If you have seen that film,then you know the 'twist' in this film.



I'm sure this 'unrated' release will be a ripoff with either alot of filler additions(like Ring 2),or a few added lines of dialogue adding up to 1 minute of extra footage.

Either way,no matter how lame the film may be. Universal better not release the PG-13 version in pan & scan only. They and other studios seem to be doing that alot regarding the rated & unrated releases.
