Yes, it was amazing. I rather enjoyed near the beginning. "Coffee?"
Anywhom, when the movie started going full swing, my jaw just dropped. I couldn't believe how great it all was, and it had such a "cult" feel. You must all see it. There wasn't a second of the movie that didn't hold my full attention.
Alot of the people in the theatre were laughing at things that were NOT supposed to be funny, as proto said. The blood was a throwback to ninja and samurai films, as well as most anime, but then again, all of his movies are inspired by such, just this film made it 300% more obvious.
It's sad however, this won't do good until word spreads. This WILL NOT be an instant-hit blockbuster, ESPECIALLY because it's October, so it's going against several horror flicks, in the Halloween season. There was maybe 5 people to see Kill Bill, whereas "House of the Dead" was sold out. This will reach cult-status, above all.
I recommend it. Highly.
