I thought that the suspense that was building helped create the horror in the film. That is why I thought that the film was scary. I don't know. Lee is usually really good, but he isn't given much to work with. People say that the eyes sell the performance, but I just don't see it. You mentioned the awkwardness of the mummy rising from the swamp. I agree with you on that and will say that the entire film seems awkward like the entire production was thinking "We hit it big with Dracula so we have to make an even better film." It's like they are trying too hard and not enough at the same time. All of the special features from this edition are on the blu-ray, plus there are more features shot for this release. That and the picture looks so much better on blu-ray. I still have to see Nocturnal Animals, but I did not like The Green Room. I don't know if I was having a bad day or what, but I just couldn't get into the film. Great list regardless. Nice list. Still have to see The Neon Demon. That is a solid list. Haven't seen a few there. I might have to check them out. That is a pretty good list. That poster is fantastic. I had a few friends growing up who had that poster in their rooms. Always intrigued me and scared me at the same time. I have just started to get into Italian Horror, so I don't really have a gauge yet. Who knows, maybe a few years down the line I will find more of an appreciation for it. Thanks. That is what the review link is for. It was just more of the same and that can become very tiring. There is a reason that film series don't go this far. The first six (not counting 2 Fast 2 Furious because that film is beyond awful) are really fun films, but this one depends too much on Vin Diesel without Paul Walker to back him up. If they had focused on The Rock and Statham, I think that the film would have been better. They said that him and Mia retired to raise the kids. Its better than nothing. You got to watch at least Hard Boiled. This is the way that action films should be made, not all that shaky-cam that has been keeping me out of the theaters for years now. Here is my Top 5: 1. Hard Boiled (1992) Hollywood still wishes that they could make action films like this John Woo classic. 2. Seven Samurai (1954) Building outstanding characters and placing them in some of the best action scenes filmed, this film has been copied but never equaled. 3. Nightbreed (1990) I was a lifelong fan of this film from the first time I watched it at a friend's house. It has been with me through the thick and thin and I deeply love this film. 4. Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975) Another film that I fell in love with at a friend's house, this is a film that helps me through my deepest of anxiety attacks. I have an attack and my wife knows that this is one of the films that helps me get through them. She has seen the film countless times, and although she hates the film, she watches every time. 5. The Thing (1982) Who doesn't love this film. This was one of the first films that I had seen that had unrelenting gore. I was hooked. I can watch this film any time, any where and see it to the end.
