Reaction to Reaction

I recently posted my review for Black Devil Doll that seems to have pissed some people off. I was going to leave a comment in the comments section, but I have decided to use the blog that I have created to give you my reaction to the comments given.

I got four comments on this review, two of them were positive, two negative. The positive ones took what I had written and provided the kind of feedback that I encourage, that of debate and question. Both of these comments were clearly thought out and posted with respect to this blogger.

The other two comments, the negative ones, are ones that are typical to the internet: poorly thought out. These comments were so poorly thought out that the commentators resorted to name calling. This is just sad. I don't resort to name calling and I hope that my followers would do the same. I have written a review from my own view point and would hope that people saw it as such. Just because you don't like what I have to say doesn't mean that you can call me a loser. If you don't like what I have to say then stop reading what I write. No skin off of my back.

I started this blog with the intention of having discussions about horror movies. I do understand that there are people out there that have hate in their heart and they feel the need to stoop down low and start calling people names. I do not run a hate filled blog. I may hate a movie, but I will not stoop down so low as to call people names when they are just giving you their opinion.

I stand by my review of Black Devil Doll. I found the movie to be offensive only to my taste in movies. The movie is poorly shot, terribly acted, and so dumb that I felt that I was getting dumber as I watched it. With these thoughts in mind, maybe the movie was targeted at the two people who resorted to name calling. You know what? I think it did.

PS- To the two people who gave me very well written and thought out comments, I just want to say thank you. You guys took what I had to say and gave intelligent feedback. I appreciate that.


  1. Another possibility could be that the vitriolic comments were from people involved with the film or friends of the filmmakers.

    Keep calling them as you see them, and let the flamers be damned.

  2. That is a good point. I never thought of that.
