View Full Version : Theatre Atmosphere

I was just wondering what kind of vibe peeps noticed in the film theatre while watching the RZ's project.

I went to a regal cinema, and I would say there were a lot of 30 somethings (like myself), lots of younger folk, and quite a bit of the 50 somethings... strange for a horror (something I've never seen til now). I would say the average was late 40's. The theatre was about 1/6 full for a 7:45pm showing.

I heard a lot of bad comments being said. One couple behind us (in their mid 50's) were trashing the film... I was really shocked to hear some of the comments and noises people were making. Two couples left, and I just heard a lot of bad things being said. It was wierd, but then again these folks were 20ish when the classic 78' film first hit.

Anyone else get a real bad vibe in the theatre during the film? I haven't had an experience like that since Episode III... just kidding, it was the film Saturday the 14th that was like that.

Thanks for the good luck :bigeyes: I guess it does have the same topic, the thread title just kinda threw me. I was thinking atmosphere, ambience, people pouring liquid lead on the couple in front of them... all that crap, not a exactly theatre rant. I thought it was going to turn into what type of seats the show had in it or something :)

I did forget to mention people clapped during the opening when the Sam Loomis quote came up. That was a plus before the film actually started.

I've been around long enough to know about repeats... so Slab.... move, delete, do what thy must, good Sire.

Back to watching HalloweeN 78' on DVD ;) :mike:

I try not to pay too much attention to other people in the theatre (you're supposed to be paying attention to the movie). When I did focus my attention on the audience, I noticed a lot of people were getting into the movie. Laughing when they were supposed to laugh, screaming when they were supposed to scream.

So yeah, no problems with the atmosphere. I thought it was spot on.

Yeah, same here Warner, except for a few assholes who ruined it for a second (if I ever see that Jason-shirt wearing bitch so long as I live...) But yes, hardly any problems here.

Oh, and you're likely the Halloween remake? Shit, I'll definitely be picking you up once you're released on DVD then. :bastard:

There were 7 other people in the theater with me, besides my best friend. I could tell that at least one (probably only one) other person there was a real fan. No one made so much as a peep during the film, accept once, when this pregnant lady left to go to the can. That was about it.

I went to see the film last night and the theater was maybe 6-8% full. But behind us a few rows back was a Latino family and they brought thier baby in there with them and that kid wouldn't shut the fuck up! That pissed me off but what made it worse was the fact that the kid was allowed in there and the parents were ok with bringin him/her in there. I won't be going back to that joke of a fucking theater ever again! It was pathetic!

Most of the people that I noticed were teenagers. One older person (looked to be almost thirty or so) was wearing a Halloween shirt. And most of them were dumb too, and had obviously not seen the original by some of the dumb things I heard them whisper.

When my wife and I saw it Friday night the theatre was about 90/95% packed with ages from early teens to mid 50s. I was amazed at the amount of females there. Once the movie started a big hush filled the audience. Once and a while you would hear an "Oh My god comment" but not much more. I know I was laughing at a few kills and had people turn and see what type of sick fuck I was.

Totally unresponsive. Very quiet, maybe even bored. In a way, I enjoyed the silence because I finally got to sit through an entire movie and hear what was going on...but, at the same time, it was a midnight movie with the "typical" midnight movie crowd (emos, young couples, a few guys dressed like Myers) but...nothing.

I went opening night as well, at Regal. The movie had two screens, and there was quite a line for Halloween. We got the second room with good seats. The crowd was pretty respectful during the film for the most part, but there was a couple near us muttering their own commentary. People jumped, laughed...but nothing dumb like guys rooting during the sex scenes. So the atmosphere was good when I saw it at the midnight showing.

my theater wasnt very full but then again it was early afternoon
but there was no screaming cos it was mostly men in there but people were jumping and stuff
and when annie is telling paul to repeat that he wants to "do" her one guy in the audience said it outloud that he wanted to...very amusing

Did anyone at your theaters clap at the end? They did when it ended Friday night. And by me, audiences usually don't do that unless it's a really good film.

I think that they only show the "good" previews on opening night. And I would rather have a 65 year old man in the audience than a 14 year old little bitch that won't shut up. However that is a little strange.

The theater was 10% full. It was an afternoon show at one of our smaller, local theaters, just outside of Philly.

These parents brought in their three kids, who appeared to range from 8-12, along with a baby. My wife and I immediately got up and moved to the other side of the theater. They didn't make a peep, though.

The whole crowd was pretty much silent throughout. I think everyone was really anxious prior to the film. They appeared to be fans. When "God of Thunder" came on, a few fists went in the air. Each time a character was introduced or there was a cameo, you'd see someone lean over to their companion and whisper something.

I laughed out loud at a few of Ronnie's lines and at Joe Grizzly. I think others were so shell-shocked and on-edge with the language - and tense from the brutal murders - that they were just pretty quiet and soaked it all in.

Everyone gasped when Michael killed Laurie's dad. That seemed to be the most surprising scene. Just about everyone remained seated through the final credits. As the lights came on, just about everyone seemed pleased, had smiles, and had positive things to say.

I decided to see it again to see how a non-private screening would be filled. It was 6:20 pm and about 70% full. Alot of gasps and jumps and everybody stayed until the Mr Sandman credits kicked in. No applause.

I saw it again that night at 9:15 pm....sold out and the ever so annoying teenage screams. One stupid teenager thought it was "stupid" that they used the "Jaws Theme"....which was actually "The shape Stalks" I looked at her and said "That aint the jaws theme, know your movies better idiot!"

Like I said elsewhere, things are different then they were in 79. Audiences liked horror back then. Now they feel they have to be "above" watching a horror movie, so the usual response is for people to sit there complaining about the film while they're in line to see it. Attacking the movie right away makes them feel comfortable and "superior" to us horror nerds. Any time you go see a horror movie in the theater, you're going to run into smug jerks like that.

MrShape666
09-03-2007, 09:21 PM
I found myself surrounded by some people at first who kept complaining and laughing. And the women were hissing variations on "slut" everytime a woman onscreen showed up in a sexy outfit or, god forbid, got naked. You know, the usually losers who think they're too "good" for a horror film.

A quick seat change fixed the problem.

Saw it again today. 4:15 showing.

The theater was pretty full - I'd say 70% at least.
I think that has to do with the fact that its only playing on one screen at this theater.

Anyway, pretty much the same atmosphere as the first time I saw it on Friday (packed house).

The "was that the boogeyman" got laughs again. Which doesn't surprise me - its the most out-of-place dialogue in the film.

As with my other viewing - a lot of different opinions.

I saw the midnight showing and since it probably was the only one around the area, enough people showed up to fill the entire theater. They all seemed to be true Halloween fans; they wore Halloween T-shirts, dressed up like Myers, etc. They also cheered during many parts (when he killed people, got his mask years later, etc.) There were some parts where teens would start random disruptions, but it didn't last long. Overall, it was a pretty enjoyable experience.

I saw the 9:40 show on Friday and I was pleasantly suprised. It was pretty packed so I had to sit floor level.

Couple of reactions I noticed.

1) A huge gasp when it shows young Michael washing his hands of blood from killing his pet rat.

2) A few laughs but only during some funny lines. Nobody said a word when Michael Myers was in business.

It seemed like everybody had their attention to the screen and nobody was being an ass. It helped me enjoy the flick more.

My theater fucking sucked! I mean badly. People were laughing at inappropriate parts (when Mason Strode was attacked for instance). You would have thought this was a comedy. Of course, I did have to laugh at one point when the people behind me said, "Machete!" when Danny Trejo appeared on screen. But still, my audience was just awful. The absolute worst audience I have ever had in a theater.

My First Screening Saturday Night 12:00 Showing : It was a packed house probably mixed all ages, i dont think none of them seen the original.

Well this was my first time viewing a halloween movie in the theatre, but the atmosphere was great. I felt like i was the fimmakers of the film and i was enjoying the crowd reaction to the movie that, all the jump scares right on the money. Most def when steve pulls the mask out for the first time in the movie the crowd was really creep out by the mask. And when lil mikey puts it on it took the crowd breathe away.

Leading up to the part to where he is grown, when they seen grown mikey the crowd freaked out. It was amazing seeing their reaction to all of those jump scare scenes and seeing michael with the mask on.

My Second Screening Sunday Night 9:40 Showing : This time my lil sister was with me, i kept on having to tell her to shut up on watch the movie, once again packed house.

My second time watchin the film was painful as hell my sister(13yrs old) kept laughing when somone got off. The crowd wasnt into it that must, i believe cause of the sound system wasnt that loud. And my sister kept on laughing, so i was bother by that throught the whole movie. I told her i'm am never talking her with me to other see other horror movie.

Mine was pretty good. I saw the 4pm Sunday showing (saved 5 bucks on the ticket, too).

It was more or less quiet in the audience, for the most part. There was one gasp when Mason Strode was attacked (which even made me jump, and I was expecting something like it to happen)

Other than that, the only time anyone laughed was when Loomis did his 'lasted longer than my first marriage' line. That seemed to crack a lot of people up.

There was no clapping or cheering (then again, I haven't been to a movie yet where there was any of that, unless it had the name George Lucas on it).

All in all, there were about 50 people in the audience, which I thought was pretty good (we were in the smallish theater, so it only holds about 250 at max. They had Halloween on 2 screens).

The only odd thing was, as my brother and I were leaving, there was this older couple (and I mean, born in the 1930's old) who said, and I quote, "That was almost as good as the first one."

That just made me smile... no idea why. Maybe because I couldn't see my grandmother (who IS 1930's old) watch anything remotely like a Halloween movie!

When I read the subject heading to this thread, I automatically assumed it was about a theme decorated within your theatre. I read somewhere else in the board that someone had their theatre decked out with spiderwebs and an employee was wearing a Myers mask. Anyway, onto the real topic. :D

Since I went to the earliest showing of the day, not too many showed up...not just for HalloweeN, I mean for the entire theatre and all the films. The most people there actually bought tickets to see HalloweeN. Anyway, everyone who showed up (approx. 20 people or so) were all 25 and up in age. Most were males and yes, there were many older folks there. The man in front of me was either in his late 40's or early 50's. I heard him grumbling throughout the entire film. Whenever there was a scene with a good amount of vulgar language, he would get upset and grumble. When there was a violent scene, the guy would get annoyed yet again. In the very end I thought I hurt him murmer that he was pretty disappointed as he walked out immediately when the credits appeared. I felt bad for the guy because I assume he expected a carbon copy of Carpenter's HalloweeN.

Okay now Carpenter's HalloweeN is my most favorite and I'll stick by it as the classic. Audiences today should know the film is now updated and an alternate interpretation. It isn't meant to take the place of Carpenter's film, just be a new spin on things, updating an older movie for a new generation of horror fans.

I must say that it is pretty cool how so many older folks showed up to support the new HalloweeN though because it shows just how long people have been with Carpenter's HalloweeN...or at least I saw it that way.

when i saw the first showing on Friday the 31st the crowd was fine (as in silent), but my second viewing the following Sunday was annoying cos people were laughing, clapping, talking. it was just so annoying, that second viewing (and the irony is when i saw it w/ the good crowd i didn't care to much for the movie, but upon my second viewing w/ the bad crowd i really enjoyed the film. if only i had the good crowd on both viewings.)

But today I saw it again, and the sound was off, it was quieter, and I noticed one thing..............................
WHEN Dr. Loomis tells Michael that "BLACK" is not a color.........
A black couple in the audience turned to each other and looked offended!!!!!!!!

A bunch of teenage girls were scared in front of me tonight. The place was 35% full and noticed that people was a tad scared and again no real reaction when the movie ended.

In my opionion the movie wasnt taken for what is was. Modern horror movies(not all) have f**ked with people's minds.Half the people in the theater i went to never even knew that Halloween was a series and not to mention there was the laughing throughout the whole movie and i do mean through out. Everybody was laughing everytime someone got killed.Murder isn't funny...Entertaining..Yes,but funny, No. It is suppose to be a horror movie not a comedy.

Cool thread, I went on a Midnight Thursday showing!!!
SILENT crowd, as was the case when they showed the original one last year!!!!!!!!!!
But today I saw it again, and the sound was off, it was quieter, and I noticed one thing..............................
WHEN Dr. Loomis tells Michael that "BLACK" is not a color.........
A black couple in the audience turned to each other and looked offended!!!!!!!!
That last scene kind of sucked with the sound turned down!!!!!! BTW!!!

Well, I went to the 10:45 PM showing on opening night, at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema here in Houston. I met up with a group of friends, who are also fans. The folks at the Alamo were not only accomodating to having this nutjob in their theater terrorizing their patrons, they actually encouraged it! Two of the waitresses actually escorted me into an earlier showing so I could scare the piss out of the audience!! I've had bad experiences in the past with dressing up for horror flicks, so the way the Alamo folks embraced me was quite refreshing. (Yes, I know the knife in the pics looks majorly fake, but I knew that anything remotely realistic looking wouldn't be cool. They were incredibly accomodating to me, and I was respectful of their rules).

The audience was pretty receptive (and the theater was probably at 95% capacity!). The Drafthouse ran several of the DVD documentaries before the movie, and also threw in classic trailers like the Carpenter version, as well as the original Texas Chainsaw and House of 1000 Corpses. All in all, they seemed to have fun!

Thanks!

Actually, white is a total refraction of color (which is why white, when viewed through a prism, reflects a rainbow). The light rays from white are all reflected back to the eyes, causing us to see white.

Black is a total absorbtion of color, so no color rays are reflected back to the human eye.

Technically speaking, you could argue that both black and white are not true colors, since they both involve a total state with regard to the light rays reflecting back, but to me that's nitpicky...as well as a bit ridiculous. It's kinda like saying that zero is not a number!

Man, that sucks! I HATE when that happens. I really hope you get a chance to see it with a decent audience.

That is one drawback to the horror genre, is that you often get young punks who have to act like they are too cool for the flick. Personally, I think this is some sort of false bravado to show their friends they aren't actually scared (which is really bullshit, because if they weren't they wouldn't have to act that way). Folks who don't want to appear scared shouldn't show up to horror flicks and ruin it for those of us who want to get a good fright!

I was just wondering what kind of vibe peeps noticed in the film theatre while watching the RZ's project.

I went to a regal cinema, and I would say there were a lot of 30 somethings (like myself), lots of younger folk, and quite a bit of the 50 somethings... strange for a horror (something I've never seen til now). I would say the average was late 40's. The theatre was about 1/6 full for a 7:45pm showing.

I heard a lot of bad comments being said. One couple behind us (in their mid 50's) were trashing the film... I was really shocked to hear some of the comments and noises people were making. Two couples left, and I just heard a lot of bad things being said. It was wierd, but then again these folks were 20ish when the classic 78' film first hit.

Anyone else get a real bad vibe in the theatre during the film? I haven't had an experience like that since Episode III... just kidding, it was the film Saturday the 14th that was like that.


Pretty much the same as you... two of my friends were literally trashing the film.... I saved the trashing untill after the movie ended.


I have yet to understand why, but throughout the entire film, everybody kept LAUGHING. I couldn't see what was so gosh darn funny about Michael killing people, but everybody else in the theater apparently did.

Because the whole movie was laughable, the love hurts scene is all out laughable, alot of Michaels victoms were cracking jokes before they died and the ending itsself was just, WTF?

People, who were roughly the same age as the target audience for this film, laughed during Schindlers list. Sometimes the audience for a film isnt the best and brightest...and when they dont truely understand whats going on (meaning the scene isnt supposed to be a comical one) there is sometimes what is known as "nervous laughter".

I dont know for sure that this is the case here, but it's a guess.

The vibes were great at the theatre I saw it in and it was sold out, 300+ seats. We were the ONLY over 40 group in there, it was all teens and 20ish.
I would say half the theatre clapped when it ended.
I got a big laugh from them during the scene where Michael is smashing the wall looking for Laurie when I yelled out "She's on the other side of the wall Michael, get her".

That scene just kept going on and on until finally I had to let it out.

Like Ryan said, laughed when they should've laughed and screamed when they should've screamed. I went with about five other people, and my best friend whose mom is a big fan of Halloween had to point out every little detail in the film that was an homage to the original as if I wouldn't have guessed. He's seen it countless times but he was acting as if I've never seen the original. He was the only one in theater that annoying me. I finally told him to shut up. The audience reacted when the Halloween theme first appeared and when we were introduced to the mask.

LOL The joys of living in the middle of NOTHING! Anyways.. When we first walked in to sit down I noticed a couple in there 60's sitting in the back, that shocked me. I didn't hear comments from anyone, but then with only 10 people and us all spread out, I doubted I could have heard them anyways.

'Tis true....I was so very much looking forward to Danielle Harris' "double scoops." I was not disappointed at all.

I agree with the ones here who believe that most people laugh because they are just nervous, showing off, or putting on some kind of a front or not allowing themselves to get INTO the film.

I began absorbing the film right off the bat. While I did laugh at some of Ronnie's stuff, I was still a little unsettled by it all - kind of felt awkward the way you do when a couple is arguing near you and you don't know how to act or what to say. And because that opening scene was so over-the-top, and given that Michael was killing small animals, among other things - I had the constant feeling throughout that something awful could happen at any second. When Mikey beat Shark Boy to death, I thought that was really brutal and I didn't even get over that when more and more terrible things happened. My wife (yes, she went with so I had to leave the Kleenex at home) and I were on edge the entire time.

I went to a regal cinema too. The vibe of the theater was ridiculous or it could've just been the bastards behind me. My uncle aunt and I got into the the theatre and had to sit up front (not all the way) and had to kind of look up at the screen. The fuckers behind us wouldn't stop talking and my uncle asked them to stop talking and they continued to talk. 10 minutes later my uncle tells them to shut the fuck up and one of the people told my uncle too. After that, they started kicking the back of my aunts chair and the people sitting next to her felt the vibrations. My uncle was getting ready to say something but my aunt said wait until we get outside. We heard someone back there say , "Im gonna get that ****** when we get ouside." The movie was almost over and they didn't stop talking once. The movie was very hard to enjoy because of the fuckers behind us. When it ended,(I didn't really like the movie after Michael's escape from Smith's Grove but I'll have to see it again) we left and waited outside but the people behind stayed in the theater.When they came out, my uncle and aunt find the people were teenagers. My aunt and uncle told them if they were any older there would've been some problems but they let it go.

Anyone know if there is any truth to the rumor that they're releasing three versions at the same time?

EDYER1
09-25-2007, 08:32 AM
I'll start out with the negative parts:

Zombie killed a classic film by taking out the mystery. First, what sticks in my mind most about what I just didn't like about the movie was the excessive violence and language. I don't mean gore, because there really wasn't much that could be considered gore, but seeing Michael bash a guy's head into a wall fifteen times to more than one person is just a bit ridiculous and over the edge. I guess what I mean is, the killings seemed to be too drawn out. Michael is a slasher or stabber, and I'm going to throw the kill count in here too. I didn't think to actually take count during the movie, but thinking back on it, it seems there were more kills in this one than any other Halloween film. Which, I guess sort of goes with the trend of horror movies, but still...

In addition, some of the kills just seemed unnecessary, such as Laurie's parents. Perhaps I just missed what Zombie was trying to show us. He grabbed Laurie's photo and showed it to her mother, as if maybe he was trying to find out where she was? But then how would he know for sure she was his sister? A bit confusing, so it seems that it was a bit ridiculous for Michael to go and kill them. Especially when he saw Laurie leave not five minutes earlier, and could have just followed her. This was also, never even introduced or suggested in anyway in the classic John Carpenter film.

I wasn't a big fan of the very beginning. Seeing Michael come from a family like that just doesn't make him scary anymore. Explaining the origins of his homicidal tendencies just ruins the mystery, and makes him no different than any other serial killer. Plus, In the classic, the baby was even around until after Michael had been put away. Michael shouldn't have even known about her.

Speaking of scary, very few moments of the movie were actually scary. Zombie relied on shocks rather than moments of suspense. In my opinion, watching a movie and saying to myself, "Oh look, he just jumped through another wall again." sort of gets old, and you start to expect it. So after about the third time Michael jumped out from somewhere, the effect really wore off, and what you are left with is simply a movie with a really big guy killing people incredibly violently. The only thing scary about that is actually seeing a human being (appear to be) murdered, which in the context of a film is fairly easy to stomach, sad to say.

Also, I absolutely could not stand the actress that played Laurie. I can't think of her name at the moment, but she really got on my nerves. And some of her more serious lines were laughable, due to her delivery, especially the infamous "Was that the boogeyman?" line. Everyone watching with me (about 5 other people) just cracked up when she said it.

And, I'm not sure if I dislike it yet or not, but having Loomis apparently killed by Michael doesn't seem to sit well with me. Of course, if they make a sequel, it would be very easy to just say "Surprise! I didn't really die!", but as for now, we can all assume he was murdered. I guess what bothers me is that in the original series we never actually see Dr. Loomis die until Halloween 4, and here we finally do in the 1st film.

How can you take away the classic scene of Laurie's Friend and Bob having sex in the house and then having her ask Michael when he is covered by the bed sheet of thinking it was Bob, "Can't I get your ghost Bob?" and then getting killed.

I felt much of the dialogue was poorly written as well. There was a lot of vulgarity, which I don't really mind, they are just words after all, but it got to the point where it seemed over-the-top and ridiculous.

The length was a bit much. Towards the end I started getting bored, and was just wishing either Michael would kill Laurie and get it over with, or that maybe Laurie and Michael would just hug and call it a day.

However, on the positive side:

I really enjoyed the scenes of Michael in the sanitarium, especially as an adult. In fact, I felt adult Michael in the asylum with the homemade masks and the robe felt alot like Leatherface. The traditional Michael in coveralls and the white mask is more effective.

The mask did and didn't look really great. And Tyler Mane was very intimidating as Michael, even more than I thought he would be.

MacDowell's performance was pretty good. Better than I thought it would be, even with some of Zombie's ridiculous writing. I even laughed at a couple of his "jokes", although that wig in the beginning was a bit... hilarious.

Daeg did a wonderful job in his role. Normally child actors annoy me in these sorts of films, but he did an outstanding performance.

In conclusion, for me, the good aspects of the film were too few to warrant liking the movie very much. The lack of suspense and lackluster story just makes for an overall boring 100+ minutes, and that's really where the problem is: no character development and too much of Michael bursting through walls to "scare" you. He just wasn't scary. People keep saying that those of us who hated the film just wanted a modernized remake of Carpenter's film, or are just comparing it too much to the original. Not true. Even if the original Halloween were never created, this movie would still be what it is: a mediocre (at best) horror film best forgotten about. I Know a different director and writer could do a better job. It looked to much like Zombies other films, Devil's Rejects, and so on. I give it a 1/5.

Supposedly the majority liked it, so it is likely that you will to. I'm not a fan of over the top nudity and pointless vulgarity over storyline and atmosphere so this film was just another typical Rob Zombie crapfest for me.

Saw it for the second time today with a bigger crowd. Went pretty early on Friday. People were into it and all the talk of the boogeyman paid off when Laurie asks, 'was that the boogeyman' everyone in the place laughed their asses off.... Guess none of them have seen the original, I mean she was always gonna say that.

I live in the UK and saw Halloween at a 6.15 viewing on opening night (28th September). There was no atmosphere, the cinema was pretty much empty... there were 8 people in there, including me, my gf and mate who i dragged along with me to see it lol. People didn't seem that scared by it. Looking around i saw two people with their phones out, and started talkin at one point which was very annoying lol. This was a Friday though, not many poeple go to the cinema on that day, the whole complex was pretty empty not just Halloween.

When I went to see it the in theater it was pretty packed, which I was very happy about. There was no reaction from anybody in the audience until the scene when young michael wrapped his mom's boyfriend up in all that duck tape and I said, "Man he must be a heavy sleeper." Then all my friends around me and my mom and her friends started laughing and saying, "yeah really." Some other people must of heard me to because they were laughing along with us. I don't remember anyone screaming at any point, but my one friend almost hit the ceiling when michael came out of no where and sliced Laurie's dad's face when he was on the front porch. I remember people laughing at Lindsey's and Annie's interaction with each other. Especially when they was talking on the way to Tommy's house. I remeber people laughing at laurie's and Tommy's interaction with each other. And like a lot of people posted on here, a lot of people laughed at Laurie's line, "Was that the boogeyman?" So to sum it up their was more laughing then screams or anything like that. Maybe Rob should start making comedies because obviously the remake was pretty laughable. Oh yeah I heard people say that the ending sucked when I was leaving the theater.

I think people laugh at Lauries line because of Tommy warning her earlier about the boogeyman when she was dropping the keys off at the Myers house.

Yeah people laughing when Laurie asked "Was that the boogeyman?" threw me for a loop. I was like, "Um what's funny about that?" I will admit that Loomis going "What the FUCK?!" or whatever he says as he's going after Michael and Laurie was very funny and everyone laughed. Small chuckles (myself included) at the Ben Tramer comment from Annie but not too many, implying that not a lot of fans were at the 8/31 9:30pm show. No one cheered at the end but me, I had a scream of "YES!" when the movie ended and everyone looked at me all weird. A family did bring like five or six 4th graders to the movie, but they were quiet. I think they were all shocked by the violence actually. People laughed when they were supposed to, screamed twice or thrice, but I think overall hated it. And I don't know what all of you guys were thinking, but Michael stalking Laurie throughout the house had me on the edge of my seat. Theater atmosphere was average.

I dunno...I can kind of understand people laughing at it...not because it's a comical line, but because both the question and the response seemed so awkwarldy out of place. Either that or the lines were just awkwardly delivered. We all know it was put in there as a homage to the original, but it just didnt feel like it was delivered right or at the right time.

A lot of people were trashing the flim when it was over..I overheard someone saying "Now are you going to give up on horror movies?" meaning they aren't the same as before....overall the film got a bum reaction

You've gotta remember that when you go to a horror movie in the theater, most of the people in there are the usual herd who think they have to be above a horror film to be "cool". They'll laugh and jeer at the movie because they think this way they'll impress everyone. Actually getting into the movie your watching is no longer socially acceptable to most of the herd.
