Hi, welcome to the board! Keep posting! I hadn't heard of Don't Be Afraid of the Dark or its original. Thanx for letting me know! I just finished watching Picnic (1955), a title which I'd always avoided due to ignorant, preconceived notions. The movie was fantastic, great writing, great casting, great acting, great everything.
Thanx, Siggy, for the warning. I had looked forward to Contagion, but I take your word.Watched Contagion. Sorely disappointed. An hour into the movie I asked my friend, 'Shouldn't something exciting, scary, something, be happening by now?' When the movie ended (finally) there was an audible gasp in the audience.( A gasp of what-the-heck! Is that all there is?) Including mine. As my friend and I were getting up to leave I said that the movie would be something I would have expected from a basic cable channel. Or maybe SyFy. The three people who were sitting in the row in front of us overheard my comment and agreed with my comments. Bummer.
