Thanks a lot Mike, now I'm going to be having nightmares about women with long fingernails chasing me! This movie looks both scary AND gory. Excellent. Some of the set-pieces look fraught with dark humor too, such as the decapitated head still talking :D

I did not even notice the decap' head and I saw the trailer 4-5 times. Nice eye and I am sure that I am ruining your adolescence. When you get older everytime you walk down a dark alley you will see something sinister, or a dark shape. Boowhoooaaaa! Damn I am tired my comedy is flat, lol.

Pfft, my teenage-ness was ruined long before you came along and I do see things where there is nothing to be seen! I always annoy my family by pointing out horror tropes/cliches that could occur at any moment.

Mum: Isn't this countryside area nice?
Me: If this was a horror movie, there'd be locals nearby who'd warn us and we'd laugh. Then we'd all be skinned alive by cannibals.
Mum: Don't say things like that in front of your sister!!
Me:'s true though!!

And the sentences always start with: "if this is a horror movie".

At the Madame Tussauds Waxwork Museum in London we were midway through the wax models and I whispered: "all the models are gonna come alive" to my sister, she hit me she was so angry :D
