Anyone a little bummed we didn't get to see "House Painting"?
Just saw a showing of this tonight with my friends before going to work. Been excited for it to come out since seeing the original. Definitely enjoyed it, though I'd say it was a bit weaker in places than the first movie. For one, the overall soundtrack didn't make me *beep* like the first movie. Still, enjoyed the hell out of it.
My only real complaint is this: Why don't we get to see House Painting? For those of you who aren't aware, that's the film made of the first movie's ending. Ashley Oswalt was there, with the other kids haunting Zach and Dylan. Was waiting the whole movie for hers to be shown, and she finally comes forward and says "This one's mine." and Dylan goes "No, I don't want to watch anymore movies."
Well, *beep* you, Dylan. I wanted to watch it.
Now maybe they couldn't get Ethan Hawke back for a cameo and didn't want to use a body double, I dunno. Just felt a bit let down that they teased that one and we didn't get to see it.
Also made me feel like "Dentist Appointment" came out of nowhere, cause the kids keep telling Dylan that there's only one more film to watch, (presumably "House Painting") and yet when he comes across Zach watching a film, it's "Dentist Appointment". Maybe that was an earlier film that Dylan had already seen? Also that one was a bit of a tease, but I've heard it will be on the DVD/Blu-Ray, so not as bad there.
Anyway, just my thoughts.
