Thanks to dovetail o/ for posting the youtube link with audience reaction - am still trying to find myself!...

Queued from 6pm - was allowed into the screen at 18:30, only to be told the film would not start until 19:30!! So bf and I grabbed (a few) budweisers and settled down in our seats, looking through our goody bags; flash light, small hand mirror and a bag of popcorn (bacon and maple syrup flavour).

I did enjoy the film, I like how James Wan returned the film's genre to the old school beginnings of horror, with building up of tension and use of humour to release/lighten tension in selected places. Am not a fan of 'gore porn' as I've recently discovered it's called.

I have recommended this film to everyone I know who enjoys this genre. Will give it 9/10
Preferred cinemas: All Central London: APOLLO Piccadilly, EMPIRE Leicester Sq; ODEONS: Leicester Sq/Covent Garden/West End/Whiteleys/Panton St; VUE: West End/Fulham/Islington, CINEWORLD: Haymarket/Shaftesbury Ave; Brixton Ritzy,

Bacon and maple syrup! I'm jealous, sounds amazing, I think mine was cheddar and onion. Valda had wasabi!

[spoiler]during credits...." We see photos of the real life people depicted in the film. " after credits.....nothing[/spoiler]

this is from http://aftercredits.com/

a website dedicated to just this question

The site tells you whether there is anything during & after credits.

Personally i'm sick & tired of the gimmick of post-credit scenes & wish film makers would stop it. The only thing worse than this is sitting through credits, "just in case" there is a bonus scene & there being nothing !

I always check that site now. The answer to whether there is a scene is hidden, you have to click on it. But if there is nothing, it just tells you.

I tend not to click on the button, because I want the nature of the scene to remain a surprise.

nothing worse than 5 mins of credits, cleaners waiting to come in, and you are still sitting there like a fool, when there's nothing coming :oops:

Maybe we should alert each other that there is something worth waiting for in a preview to save needless waiting. The exception to this is of course Marvel movies as they invariably do have something at the end.

Problem is, I tend to not check the thread of a film I haven't seen, as some people's definitions of spoilers are much different to mine. Thanks for the site, newdot!
