The digital 3-D presentation is a must for horror fans. The picture is crystal clear and it gives the film so much depth you really feel like you are part of the story. If buckets of blood, body parts and one mean pickaxe flying at you sounds like a good time, then go see this one before it leaves theaters. Now the regular 2-D version might be a different story.
Just to let some of you know, the DVD and Blu-ray version won't be digital 3-D like in theaters (can't wait until they perfect that), so you will get four multi-colored glasses for regular 3-D. You will also have the option of just watching it in 2-D.
As for 3-D at home, not amazing, but did have it's moments. It seemed to fluctuate between clear with great 3-D to downright blurry for some scenes. There were a couple of times that I was jumping out of the way of a pick-axe or flying body parts and others were I was straining to figure out what exactly was on the screen. Being this DVD is double sided, it doesn't hurt to give it a try just for fun, but it's good to have the regular 2-D version for normal viewing at home.
We both love Jensen Ackles, which was why we watched this movie. We find him to be pure entertainment and really funny(supernatural is one the shows we never miss)...he did not disappointed. For once I actually had predicted a completely different killer, and that is surprising being 95%of the time I can tell you the ending within the first 20 minutes.
Unfortunately, no good special features on this one. But otherwise, the movie was gory, inventive kill scenes, amusing and suspenseful. Definitely worth a watch!
The first one I bought was scratched so badly that it affected playback. I returned it. The second one was better but still very badly scratched. Since the clerk said all the discs were this way I just decided to keep the disc and have it buffed/repaired at a video store. What's funny is the clerk at the video store took one look at the title and said "all ours are also the same way." My brother who is a manager of a Movie/Music retail store says they've been taking a lot of returns on this DVD for the same problem.
Whoever at Lionsgate designed this case by throwing in the glasses to scratch up the disc should be fired. They didn't even take the time to put the glasses in an envelope and put it under the insert tabs. They just thew the glasses in without care! The next time you go to a store, shake the case and you can here the glasses shaking around. Awful
Don't even think about getting the 2 Disc version as that edition is also uses a double sided disc with the same problem.
Buyer beware....if you decide to purchase than get ready to get a very badly scratched disc.
I'm really not going to waste any time tackling the movie itself. Overall, this actually ranks up there with one of the better modern horror re-makes I`ve seen. I didn't care too much for the ending, but I'm willing to let it slide because, frankly, I've seen so many crappy horror flicks lately, that anything that doesn't leave me wanting to throw the dvd in the garbage gets a passing grade.
Since Amazon reviews are suppose to be based on the product as a whole, not just the movie itself, I'm going to tackle my complaints with this release, many of which have nothing to do with the movie itself:
Packaging: As several people have mentioned, this dvd was carelessly put together. In an effort to cut manufacturing costs, Linesgate opted for a doubled sided dvd instead of a 2 dvd set. This wouldn't have been a big deal had it not been for the 4 pairs of fancy 3D glasses included with the movie. While I had no issues with my copy, I've read dozens of posts from people that have stated the top side of their DVD had been scratched to the point of either being unplayable or needing repair before watching because the glasses were loose in the case. What I'd suggest to people yet to purchase the dvd is to shake the case before buying. If you hear something moving around in there, there's a good chance the dvd's damaged.
Special Features: In order to bilk fans out of their hard earned money, Lionsgate released two versions of this film on dvd.Read more ›

Mine survived unscratched, but that loose swinging disc tray they used for disc one isn't conducive to making sure the disc stays in good shape, as it comes easily loose from its' snaps, and allows the disc to rattle around inside the case. They should have put the almost useless disc 2 in the... Read More
