an overtly hyped released that mushroomed into an uncontrollable media monster. i saw it opening night at the Nuart in Santa Monica. a very smart promotional scheme was to hand out slick pamphlets detailing the scenario ala videogames, to feed theimagination and to counter what was obviously lacking in content. the delivery was the key factor in this film, and it worked. so much so that it might have as big an impact as _Pulp Fiction_ (vhs/ntsc)(1994) a half decade earlier. indeed, the bedroom filmmaker revolution is the next step, after electronic music in the nineties and the zine scene of the eighties. once again, what fascinates me most is not the subjective quality of a "thing" but more of its impact into the minds and therefore culture and therefore system. this film most definitely makes a dent. oh, and it wasn't scary for me, it just gave me a headache. - @Om* 2/16/2000
