    Watched again, still perfect. Up to 4th watch I believe. This time I got to show it to someone that’s never seen it before so that was interesting. Clive Barker is still easily my favorite horror mind.

The social commentary on consumerism was great, and still very relevant today. Plot-wise, the setup is great.

    Great cast in this. We’ve got Ian McKellan (Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter), Freddie Highmore (Bates Motel, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Daniel Craig (Layer Cake, James Bond), Nicole Kidman (The Others, Moulin Rouge), and Christopher Lee (Dracula, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings) in a small role. Written and directed by Chris Weitz,…
