Stay Away From This Movie!!

United States
February 2, 2007 1:45pm CST
Just got back from watching "The Messengers". What a truly awful movie..stay away at all costs. If you've seen the trailer, you've seen all the decent bits (and those were few and far between). Yet another disappointment for horror movie fans.

Thanks for the heads-up on this one, inked4life! I don't "do" horror movies (as I'm a certified "big baby" LOL) but my sister loves them and she was just mentioning "The Messengers" this morning. Mind you, I think she said she was going to wait and see it as a rental -- perhaps, in that case, it won't be such a big loss.

waiting for rental may be the best idea as I have a feeling there will be a directors cut of this one...it looked to me like the studios wanted it kept fairly light so the teenage crowd could go see it.

Really? It looked good from the commercials. I'm glad you posted this because I was planning on going to see it. BTW, why was it so bad?

I thought the trailer was great too and had actually read an article about it in Rue Morgue (a horror magazine), and it sounded really interesting. It's like a really watered down version of The Grudge (very similar plotline too) and the scenes with the ghosts are ALL shown in the trailer...about 2 minutes of screentime total

Thanks for the warning. Its so costly to see a movie these days that I don't want to see a bad movie. The trailers sure have looked good.

That's too bad. I am glad you alerted us, as my teens and I wanted to go see this movie. We are not into the watered down junk, we want the type of horror flick that causes soiled 'drawers,' profuse sweating, racing hearts, dilated pupils and a propencity to looking over one's shoulders for the next few weeks!

if you're looking for a decent new horror movie to watch, try renting "Altered"...it's a low budget alien flick with lots of good gore and a decent storyline. Made by the same guy that directed Blair Witch

I watched it. It is horrible indeed. But the girl there kinda looks like the bella from twilight. Is she the one in messengers? haha

The Messengers - The Messengers, starring Dylan McDermott, Penelope Ann Miller and Kristen Stewart
I have never read about The Messengers before this, thanks for posting about this worse horror movie, I will be avoiding it if I cam across this movie. But in imdb.com it has a good review, seems kind of interesting ....
