Anyone see this? I really am not crazy about 3D for full-length movies, but I wanted to see it anyway. Really good. Perfect amount of creepiness. I haven't read the book, so I don't really know how much was changed.
So it's a kids' story. It actually brought back a lot of imagery I had when I was a kid, including some nightmares and some trippy non-nightmares. I was a little worried when all the pre-trailer content 10-15 minutes before the movie were all commercials for really young kid stuff, but I guess they put those in any theater that's showing a PG movie or lower. We went to the last showing of the night, so thankfully it was an almost empty theater. Only heard one or two kids talking the entire time.
One of my friends still won't get off my case about seeing a kids' movie without a kid. Of course, she also finds it hysterical that I saw it with another guy. On Valentine's Day. We had a seat buffer between us
I need to find my old 3D glasses from Beowulf.
Basically the 'other mother' takes the eyes of children she lures through the portal door and eats their soul. Yikes.
I swear the child has some goth in her.. she only wears pink and purple but when she draws its skeletons, ghosts, bats.. people getting electrocuted by lightning... Strange child...
