Dans l'Oeil du chat
Summary: Pauline went on a trip from which she never came back. Her fiance, Simon, will do anything to find her until he learns that she was found dead in some distant country but as he's emptying her apartment he begins finding troubling information.
My thoughts: The story is very good, well written and the viewer doesn't really get what's happened to Pauline until the end of the movie. The visual side however is not very interesting in my opinion. Most (if not all) of the movie takes place in Pauline's apartment but it's not very appealing. It's much like a Peace & Love apartment of the 60's with strange colors and dark rooms. I think the story would have been better served by giving it a more "modern" flavor.
My score: Overall it is still a good movie, I don't regret buying it. Would probably watch again.

Scary Movie, a review by addicted2dvd
This hilarious, must-see comedy smash places Carmen Electra (TV's Baywatch), Marlon Wayans (Senseless), Jon Abrahams (Boiler Room, The Faculty) and some of today's hottest young stars in a wickedly funny send-up of today's most popular horror movies! A familiar-looking group of teenagers find themselves being stalked by more-than-vaguely recognizable masked killer! As the victims begin to pile on, none of your favorite scary movies escape the razor-sharp satire of this outrageously funny parody! With Shannon Elisabeth, Shawn Wayans and Cheri Oteri adding sidesplitting performances, there's nothing to fear in this scary movie...unless you're afraid of laughing too much!
I can't have a Comedy-Horror marathon and not watch Scary Movie! This movie mostly spoofs the movie Scream... but also spoofs some others such as I Know What You Did Last Summer, Blair Witch Project and The Sixth Sense. It even throws in a little from non-horror movies such as The Matrix. I think this is a good movie for what it is. A movie to make fun of other movies. It has some decent jokes... of course some of them are rather juvenile and sick... but it is what it is and worth checking out if you like movie spoofs.

This was originally a lucky blind buy. It only cost 12 bucks (dirt cheap for an anime), and boy was it worth it.
