If you like having the crap scared out of you, then run, don't walk to your nearest cinema to watch "The Others" starring Nicole Kidman. I went to see this last night with a couple of friends, and found the suspense so rivoting, with a build up of fear so compelling - I actually found myself putting my arms down at my sides to make sure that when I jumped in horror I would not accidentally gouge myself with my fingernails...
"The Others" is one of the best scary movies I have seen - better than "The Shining" - on par with "The Exorcist". Nicole Kidman, who I have never been a fan of, puts in a tremendous performance, and the two kids who play her children are outstanding.
Don't let anyone spoil this movie for you - just know that it is about a woman living with her two children in a large mansion in the mid 1940's.
Be warned: don't expect a good nights sleep after watching it, though...
lol at bam.
What rating/certificate is it, as its still not out here yet?
Sheeit Craig, I LOVED that movie. it scared the CRAP outta me.
Definitely a movie worth seeing, horror fan or not.
FAngel - here in the states it is rated PG-13.
Bam - am I a chick??? What, you have large ugly chicks named 'Craig' in your neck of the woods???
Ahh, you are in Oklahoma I see...
LOL at craig ! you threw me off with the fingernail talk
Actually, Bam, you are right - that fingernail comment was pretty faggy... How about,
"The tension was so taut that I feared I would hit myself in the balls when jumping in fear..."
or, "The tension was so intense, that I had to sit on my hands in fear of bashing the puny little dude on my right with an inadvertant jerk of surprise..."
Hehe - maybe I should leave the movie reviews to the fat guy on T.V....
Gonna go check it out.
Craig, you're the third person now who has recommended that movie for a good scare...I'm not a Nicole Kidman fan either, but I love a good horror movie.
craig man...your sarcasm is killin' me!
