3.0 out of 5 stars Good, Fun Horror Flick January 31, 2005
Format:DVD
I have always had a soft spot for this movie. What I enjoyed most about "Popcorn", is that it doesn't take itself too seriously. It's a fun little movie, and provides some laughs and chills. And I loved the idea of an all-night horror-fest in an old theater as the setting. I also got a good chuckle at the movie titles the students run for their midnight movies; "Mosquito!" and "The Stench". As a huge fan of 50's & 60's B-movies, I got a kick out of the filmaker's tribute to a bygone era of horror. There are some unique kills in "Popcorn", very little gore, no nudity and very little language.....I still am not sure why "Popcorn" has an "R" rating? The special effects are pretty good and hold up well a decade plus later. If you are hoping for another "Halloween" or "Friday the 13th"...look elsewhere. If you just want some harmless, horror movie fun along the lines of "April Fools Day" then give "Popcorn" a try.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Find March 9, 2006
Format:DVD
Here is a title that doesn't get much notice among the Jason's and Freddy's. The short version of the story involves students doing an all night horror marathon at an old movie theater that was the scene of a horrible murder 15 years ago. The crazed film maker killed his entire family on stage save for 1 daughter. Back to the present, the lead character Maggie thinks she may be the daughter that escaped, and the killer who wears other people's faces may be her father out to finish what he started. Very little blood and cursing, and no nudity. This is a more gentle horror film. I think it is worth a watch, it holds up pretty well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy a bag, go home in a box October 25, 2002
By chatchi
Format:DVD
Popcorn -- It gets stuck in your teeth, it makes your fingers greasy, it makes you thirsty, it's an entertaining movie about a psycho killer murdering kids at an all-night movie marathon.

Before horror movies became slick and stylish, staring today's "hottest" actors, there were terrifying movies like "Popcorn". Fun, enjoyable and bloody! "Popcorn" is filled with the screams and jolts that you expect from a horror movie, and the powerful storyline and acting that you don't. The murders are creative and brutal, leaving you unsure of who you should cheer for - the killer, or his victims.

Surprise appearances by Dee Wallace-Stone ("E.T.") and Ray Walston ("My Favorite Martian"), make "Popcorn" the perfect movie to watch during those chilly Autumn nights.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leave room for some "Popcorn" September 25, 2001
Format:DVD
In the early 1990's, before releases such as "Darkman", and "The Silence of the Lambs", when horror films were at an all-time low, and America was bombarded with cheesy made for video horror comedies, this odd, but entertaining thriller was released in theaters.
The plot was simple, an all night horror movie marathon is silently stalked by a psychopath who may or may not be a killer from the past who has come to finish what he started. It starts off as any cheesy horror film would, with a lame dream sequence, but quickly turns into much more.
The recreations of many classic 50's horror films, which is definitely the high point of the film, is worth the viewing alone.
The film is wacky, funny, and gory, very reminiscent of the opening in "Scream 2" which makes me wonder if Kevin Williamson ever had an original thought in that brain of his(also see "Happy Birthday to Me") The only weak point of the film is the ending, which was somewhat of a disappointment.
This is never meant to be taken seriously and thats the fun of it all...turn off the lights and enjoy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A hidden gem for horror movies April 4, 2007
By Mark
Format:DVD
This was a great addition to my horror collection. I loved this movie because of the idea of a group of college students creating a "horror flick" of their own trying to raise money. I really liked the ideas that they used with old movies as "shock effects" for the audience to have a totally new presentation of the "old favorites". This was a very good thriller and it was also suspenseful to watch. I recommend this movie to all horror movie collectors and watchers. It is truely a hidden gem in the horror genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten Early 90s Horror Films-Part 1 March 1, 2008
Format:DVD
"Buy A Bag....Go Home In A Box" has got to be one of the best horror film taglines of all time. Unfortunately the film isn't quite as cool. This movie came in at the end of the slasher era, and along with Dr. Giggles was one of the last...ahem....stabs....at the genre before the dumb "I know I'm in a horror movie" slashers started by Scream. The action takes place at a movie theater. A high school film class decides to earn some cash by having a B horror movie marathon complete with William Castle-esque gimmicks including a giant mosquito on a wire for a film titled, "Mosquito", electrified theater seats for "The Amazing Electrified Man", and stinky gas from the theater vents for "The Stench". During the films the students start getting bumped off, usually in the manner of the film gimmick they're operating. As in most slasher flicks, the killer's motive is revenge for a past trauma. He's able to look like the people he's killed by creating realistic skin disguises for himself a la Darkman. His sights specifically are on "Maggie", our heroine, and her aunt played by scream queen Dee Wallace Stone. What's their connection? You'll be shocked to find out!!!!!!!!!!! No, actually you won't really. The backstory involving the theater and a bizarre film and it's director are actually pretty cool(the avant garde bizarro short film, "Possessor" is kinda neat actually), but it's rather weak as far as slasher material. A low body count and rather skimpy on the gore. The films that are watched in the theater are actually the best part of the film; very good reproductions of old 50s/60s monster movies. Ray Walston shows up in a cameo, and Tony Roberts has a small role as the film class teacher(apparently Woody Allen wasn't making a movie that week). It's more of a 3 and a half as far as the rating goes coz it's certainly not without entertainment value, and does manage to be clever now and again. All the other reviewers are right-This dvd transfer is terrible.

Watch Joe Dante's 'Matinee' instead. A similar premise (although played for laughs, not horror), and much better execution.

A horror comedy with heavy emphasis on comedy. It doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense, but the actors are likeable and the old movie parodies are pretty darn good. Read more
