    We all run that risk but the chances are we're right about this one. At best it will be like Yawn 04, and that was a steaming pile of cackeroonie.

    I take it that 'cackeroonie' doesn't mean 'goodness' in the manner you're using?

    Is that to say that at worst it will be like LAnd?

    Wow, you guys are getting pretty harsh on the movie pretty early. . . but I guess that is our way here. I however, will give the movie a solid chance. Looks good to me so far. I expecially like the little bit they showed where everyone is tied down to hospital gurnies and the crazy starts going at the tied down people with a pitchfork. Creepy that.

    Well same here - however - they've put a trailer out for public consumption, they're trying to get people interested, but equally it can turn people off, such as I - it's out there for consumption and people can have an opinion on it.

    Plus, you talk about what you think it might end up being like - say if you were placing a bet. Hence "I bet it'll chow down on a buffet-table full of pee-stained winkies with a side order of butt nuggets".

    What I'm saying is, even though the trailer company puts it together, those "standard" shots exist in the movie in the first place, and indeed, isn't it the filmmakers/producers/studio who decide which batch of clips get sent to the trailer folk?

    You call that a best case scenario?

    i have a confession to make: i've never seen "the crazies"...for shame, i know. really digging what i see in the trailer, though, so i imagine i'm gonna head out and pick up a copy on dvd this weekend before the remake comes along and gives it the "ghey of the dead" treatment.

    ...as for that new trailer, looks pretty cookie-cutter, very uninspired...could be entertaining in a dawn 04 way, but nothing groundbreaking, maybe worth seeing once.

    and boy, am i sick to death of that fucking "mad world" song...and least the gary jules version..it was in donnie darko, the gears of war trailer, and then some emo-vagina used it in a youtube video ripping on that kid who was fucking up those cats. if they used the tears for fears version i'd be happier, since you don't hear that one as much....

    Hopefully, in Critters 5 it was revealed that Counsellor Tetra was NOT, in fact, Ug, and Ug himself returns to redeem himself?

    Actually nope, I hadn't seen Critters 4 at that time ... possible not even 2 or 3, but had definitely seen the first. Not sure really, can't remember that part of the plot you mention though (I assume that's from #4?), it's been ages since I've seen any of them.

    I was almost gonna buy the box set for a fiver online, but had other ones I wanted first ... plus the discs have NO extras still, I mean wtf?! Not a single special edition among them, not even in the box set!

    As for my Critters 5, I can't even remember the plot. It was on earth that's for sure, it was probably a rip-off of the first two movies I'd imagine.

    I also wrote a "Screamers 2" (which took place on earth) back in those days as a kid...it was kinda reminiscent of "Death Machine" in a way, actually.

    I wonder if I wrote a "Death Machine 2" as well, can't remember ... sounds like the sort of thing I would have written as a kid in those days.

    Hey man, they're weren't name rape at all. They were my own fan sequels, thank you very much. Fan sequels written at a time when my writing talent was basic, but good for that age. I've still got them all lying around somewhere printed off (I was writing them on a computer that didn't even have Windows 3.1 on it, hehe).

    Not especially original content wise, some of them (as in the 'fan sequels'), but none were 'fan remakes' ... so, nyah, ya cheeky bugger.

    I did write other stories that were very indebted to some of my favourite horror flicks at the time, like "Half Past Midnight" was heavily inspired by Friday 13th Part 4, and "The Massacre" was - rather obviously - heavily inspired by The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and "Extra Hours Cost More" was heavily indebted to flicks like Last House on the Left and so on. 'Fan Rip-Offs' if you will.

    You know what it's like as a creative-minded teenager in their formative movie-viewing years.
