Now, I'm going to say out right that this is a spoiler.
So I loved it Condor being the consumre of souls and crow the guardian to death. It was amazing. It was like a combination of Shcoker and Nightmare on Elm Street.
I was a little mad when my favorite character (Penelope the Jesus freak) got offed, I really like the rules of horror films and offing a virgin isn't my favorite thing to see, but this is what I want to discuss.
Craven "broke" two "rules" in his film, attcaking someone in a closet, and icing a virgin. However he used these exceptions to take a deep look at the characters.
In the closet it was a form of irony, closet symbolizing sanctuary or the womb, and the boy (Bug) being ripped from it ruined his sisters life, when she is ripped from the closet "the womb" it starts an ironic ture about where in Bug is saving Fang.
As for Penelope... I was at a loss until the end when the killer said "he and that doctor jumpped into the first babies they could find" (I paraphrased) Both Penelope and the Doctor were symbols of insight and justice, and both more or less accepted their deaths. Penelope was the doctor (more or less).
Does anyone else thik this is what Craven intended, if not why would one of the authors of "the rules" break them, I'm just really eager to hear your opinions?
