I'll get that on BD before Strange comes out for sure.

I remember liking his remake of TDTESS. It wasn't as impacting as the original but I dug it. Ill need to see Sinister.

I hated TDTESS. I enjoyed his Hellraiser: Inferno, though. That's my favorite of the DTV Hellraiser films.

I thought it was pretty good. It had the usual elements.

Seeing Joel McHale in that role was pretty awesome. I admire that crowd of comedians. So I liked seeing that. He really worked out those arms.

Something about the trailers led me to believe that the plot would turn into a "plague" of some sort (similar to At the Mouth of Madness or Lifeforce). It was really just a Bruckheimer procedural flick with horror elements.

So I liked it. It was fun to see things unfold.

This movie was a procedural through and through, just like you'd expect from a Bruckheimer TV show. Not terribly original, but more than competent.

That said I also enjoyed it a good bit. I think the critical reception was overly harsh, but I've noticed this year that I'm back out of sync with critics.

Watched this today, I thought it was entertaining. The reviews seem alittle harsh. Thought everything was great in their roles. I wasn't aware McHale was in this movie, so that was a nice surprise. Big fan of his from Community and Talk Soup. I figured he'd be the jokester, but it was cool that his character was also a tough badass.
Some really creepy imagery and atmosphere, alot of practical gore too.

I didn't care much for the ending
Spoiler:
why did the possessed guy not kill Bana's wife and child? He's a demon, he doesn't have sympathy or a plan. That was alittle too happy Hollywood ending for me


That said, I enjoyed it overall, gave it 3 stars in Netflix.
