This is one of my favorite movies that I actually saw in the theaters and bought the DVD on the first day of its release. This is the type of movie where the more over the top violence and gore I saw the more I laughed my head off. Having said this, don’t mistake this movie for not being an perfect horror movie. This film has it shares of utter grossness, blood splattering, and uber creepiness. I loved watching horror movies in my teens and reading Fangoria magazine. Movies like the original Halloween, Evil Dead, Dawn of the Dead, The Brood, C.H.U.D., People Under The Stairs, Hellraiser, Nightmare On Elm Street, Friday the 13th are true classics in the horror genre. The new crop of I Know What You Saw in the Hostel Last Year have no weight to them as the shock value is the only thing they have to offer and nothing more. Planet Terror has renewed my in love of horror movies and will serve as a benchmark to compare all others in the 21st century.
