You owe it to yourself to nail at least one friend with this one. I was baffled when Samuel Jackson called me...

I'm going out on a limb and saying that this movie is going to be a disappointment (box-office wise). Too much hype, the mania seemed to crest about three months too soon. At this point, the joke is old.

Hollywood hasn't put out a decent scary flick in some time. Jackson doesn have drawing power and thriller/horror flicks have done ewll of late...I'm sure the movie will be rotten though.

How lame can you be? How can you not be impressed by a sam jackson phone call? Especially when he talks **** to you.

I've been sending this message to several friends and most loved it! Can’t wait for this film to open. I think it will be either genuinely scary or a barrel of laughs for all the wrong reasons. Either way, it'll be entertaining!

Good call!

I'm kinda glad it has a disappointing opening. The hype was a bit annoying

I haven't seen the numbers yet, what did it pull in? They're going to make a boatload of money on it, regardless, since it was so cheap to film.

EDIT: Oooh, only $15M? They'll still make $$, but had the movie come out about three months ago I would have pegged that figure at at least twice that.
