This isn't being screened for critics. Why am I not surprised?

The first review finally came in on this -- a reviewer, nicknamed "Uncle Creepy," gave it a positive review. I don't know how reliable he is, but he said it had much of what some people seek in a horror film. 
 
I'm not surprised because the trailers just give off a smell of RAZZberries. Perhaps it's how the voices sound. Perhaps it's all the other sound effects. Perhaps it's the film editing or even the camera filtering that made at least me suspect it even more than usual. If this gets widely panned tomorrow morning, I can return here and say I told you this would be a bad film, just like so many "first bad films out of the gate" before it.
 
Meanwhile, Joyful Noise is still 8 days away, and it already has 2 negative reviews. I hope that's a sign of things to come, because after January 2011 where we only had 3 RAZZIE contenders, we'll be closer to having at least 6 contenders like was the case with January 2008, 2009, and 2010.

"Uncle Creepy" gave the DTV Hostel III a good review. This, combined with his review being the only one a day before it's released, convinced me that he's a shill.

Ok, just came back from a "prescreening," and I take back everything I said. This movie sucked! I saw it for free and I still felt ripped off. The movie moves at an incredibly slow pace, with too few cheap scares, all coming too far between. The abrupt ending is like a slap in the face, because there is no payoff. Basically, the movie promises more than it delivers. 

Instead of paying to see the movie, just watch the "red band trailer" that (surprise, surprise) reveals all the good parts in the film...

You thought the ending was abrupt? Isn't this a "found footage" movie? So at the end, no matter what, whoever was filming dies.

There's a clear difference between this ending compared to the endings of all those other "found footage" films.

This got another positive review from Joe Leydon, a "top critic". He gave Trespass a good review and Bridesmaids a pan.

Here's a nice little article about Paramounts plans....

Not really.... I understand your reasoning for considering it... eventhough I don't fully agree...

@Vheid: That article... I'm speechless.

Has anyone here seen a movie called JIMMY & JUDY? If you haven't, you should. Although it seems I'm the only one who gave it 9/10, it's a good example on how to make a Found Footage Film that isn't a Horror Film.

MovieWizGuy, is this Tweet* about the ending true? If it is, the filmmakers gotta be stupid!

R.T.(5-15%): "A cheap, choppy unscary mess, featuring one of the worst endings in recent memory".

And here's a LINK with some more bad news: This made $16.85 million on Friday alone! It's already made back 18times its budget, so it's officially a hu-u-u-u-u-ge hit.  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Sounds like I need to remind everyone that, while box office failure is often an indicator of RAZZIE® potential, box office "success" does not necessarily protect a film from our consideration. On our 2011 Nominating Ballot (which should be arriving in Voting Member's mailboxes soon) we have listed many "box office blockbusters" (TWILIGHT SBD #1, TRANNIES #3, ALVIN #3, and cetera)...

I never said that. I'm as annoyed as you are.

I remember reading that some time ago, and I thought the idea was great. However, since The Devil Inside is one of them, I'm not so sure about the idea anymore.

Yes, it's true. Ugh, and it was so frustrating to see.

I'm also surprised by the $16.9 million it made on Friday alone. THIS IS MADNESS!!!
