@klownz- yep. Another Collector story would be good. I think he has the potential to be another iconic horror villain and the ending DID leave it open.

EVIL DEAD looks better than promising. One can only hope. . . . . . .

The collector has potential to be a horror icon, and Evil Dead given the premise first time director handling a remake of a horror classic, RED FLAGS RED FALGS. But that kick ass trailer, No CGI and practical effects make me scream like a school girl in joy.

The Cabin In The Woods- An excellent example of a brilliant concept simply not done justice during execution.  The film utilized some of our favorite tropes of the genre; eerie and isolated location, darkened environment that was in and of itself a hazard, and the use of a 'family curse' as the moving mechanism for the initial antagonists.  What turned this into an average slasher/creature feature for me was the acting (sub-par), the pacing (not enough time spent on character development), and the sort of last-minute explanation of the motivation behind the lab techs involved in the underground facility.  I understand that this is a standard convention for this sort of horror, but in a written medium, this story could have done much better. Perhaps I'm just spoiled by horror literature- after all, film as a narrative medium has never had the advantages of the written word.
