I saw it today and was impressed. Perhaps because so many people poo-pooed the creature FX, I wasn't expecting much. I thought the creatures were very
well done and the giant "thing" was quite effective as it was never clearly visible. Just enough to let your imagination take it from there.
Uniformly good performances with many familiar faces from Darabont's troupe. I was surprised at how the film had this cool 50's feel to it, but with an
amped up intensity that never crossed the crossed the line of poor taste. No Hostel/Touristas crappola here.
The drug store scene in particular was a skin-crawling experience. The lack of music and overdone sound effects gave a far more eerie feeling than if we were
cued by the soundtrack. Well done.
The ending? No spoilers from me. I'm still on the fence as to whether I liked or disliked it. It was definitely a surprise, though. Richard Roeper and this
week's co-host said that they saw the ending coming. I doubt that.
All in all, a really fun, creepy, suspenseful and scary afternoon at the movies. What else could a monster kid ask for?

So, what is the appropriate time frame of when it's legal to discuss a new release ? I say 24 hours, just like Kramers law of dating women of comatose
men. What say U ??

So, I assume, from all the spoilers here (still haven't seen the film) that the hero and his family escape, only to be eaten by giant spiders. Sheesh.
There goes another movie experience ruined. I think I'll avoid threads like this until I actually see the movie.

I don't know...when I'm in a thread about a movie that's currently playing, I pretty much expect there's going to be SOME spoilers here and
there...otherwise there'd be nothing but 20 posts of "I liked it;" "how come?" "can't tell you it's a spoiler;"
"I didn't like it;" "how come?" "can't tell you it's a spoiler." "so-and-so was really great when he...oops
can't tell you what he did it's a spoiler." etc etc. My advice would be not to look at a thread about a movie you're interested in until
you've seen it, otherwise you might find out some things you didn't want to know. Just my two cents.
