Previews made it out to be a romantic comedy, but it's a tragedy instead. It's still incredibly cliche, complete with many "words of wisdom" for the woman going through a mid-life crisis.

For a horror movie, it was actually... pretty good? However, it wasn't good enough to demand numerous sequels.

I certainly wasn't expecting that. It's a horror-thriller with somewhat of an actual plot and an introspective view of the power of life.

Very little plot, very little character development, but plenty of zombies. When you get right down to it, that's all that matters. The shopping mall setting was pure genius.

This movie actually isn't half bad. It provides some genuine thrills, even if the story and scary moments have been recycled from numerous previous movies. It still falls into the old trap of having too many jump scares.

What a huge disappointment. A lot of people say this is one of the best horror movies ever made. Literally nothing exciting happens for the whole movie except maybe in the last 5 minutes, and those minutes aren't worth it to watch the whole movie.

A lot of people really, really love this movie. It was just as psychologically twisted as people said it was, but not because you witness a lot of gore (you don't). I found myself thinking a lot about the effects of violence in movies and the media after this one, and I suppose it deserves a good rating just for that.
