I'd lower expectations slightly - it's amazing technically and very true to the original's spirit from what I've been told, but it will leave alot of people cold and it is fundamentally kinda silly and shallow. The violence is very visceral but it's nothing you've not seen before, it's more the way you're seeing it.

Having said that, I'll def go again at cinema - hopefully people won't whoop and cheer at every bit of violence like the crowd at Frightfest did, kinda ruined the menacing atmosphere.

I'm looking forward to this but wonder how widely it'll be distributed and more to the point how far I'll have to travel to a Cinema showing it

I am tremendously excited for this film, if I'm being honest. Elijah Wood is a fantastic actor that has proven his range (Lord of the Rings, Sin City, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Wilfred,) and I expect this to be at the very least extremely interesting.

would also point out Grimm up north are screening it tonight at the DANCEHOUSE in manchester in a double-bill. Tragically I can't make it as I have to sign on this afternoon and get lectured on how to find work (despite the fact I can prove i'm getting the damnned interviews) with an advisor. Still if vue screen it in lancaster i'll head up to watch it. Hopefully I'll be either working for Screwfix or greggs by then (my next two interviews.)
