I get it.


  1. Ironically he made one good horror,people are not watching for the gore and violence, they are watching for the emotions,story and the mystery that horrors usually come with.

  2. I only watch the Austrian version, although its a frame by frame remake the Austrian version is way better..i respect Roth as a very talented actor..but he just plays the groaning undercover cop in Reservoir Dogs all over again

  3. Movie was trash, I can't stand movies that make no sense when it comes to protecting your family, how many times did they let the wife walk into the kitchen and let her come back alone? All she needed to do was grab a knife, the killers were overly dramatic and were non chalante the entire time, which means easy to attack, and the father had multiple moments where he was alone with one of them and could have easily overpowered them if he just choked their asses out, I get his knee was busted, but he would have been dealing with adrenaline and he is a grown ass man dealing with teenagers that didn't have any real weapons 🤦‍♂️

  4. I think is movie is stupid if they had shown them just killing the family it would've been okay but wtf is this out of nowhere rewinding bs totally ruined the movie

  5. Definitely one of the greatest horror film and film alone that damn golf ball is terrifying ASF imo

  6. A ludicrous movie from start to finish. The two villains are physically weak there is no way this could happen in real life. Awful movie completely implausible.

  7. It had nothing to do with slasher films

  8. Absolutely amazing video criminally underrated channel man

  9. The more I think about this movie the more I don’t like it. I saw the original version first and then the American remake and my only thoughts while watching the remake were “why did this have to be made again?” and I don’t buy the to reach a larger audience excuse as I don’t see a lot of people paying money to essentially get lectured for two hours. It is a movie that is meant to repel people by design. As a horror fan I will give a horror movie credit if it manages to make me question my complicity in what I am watching but the way Funny Games handles it just comes across as annoyingly preachy.

  10. I don’t think he is criticizing the films as much as the audience. There is a dehumanizing effect of violent entertainment arguably. Not that it should be censored or any of that shit. He wanted to give the audience real thing which isn’t so neat and tidy as Hollywood versions. My ex-wife who is a horror film nut hated this movie. She hated it precisely cause it blocks the sick kicks fans get from these movies. Good social commentary, makes the target audience viewers particularly uncomfortable by design. Like you Malcolm in Clockwork Orange, can’t look away from it.

  11. Oh, and I while I loved this movie, I'm not usually into "slasher" movies where it's human vs human(s). Mainly because I'm not scared of some killer breaking into my home. My home is not one an intruder would walk out of….. more like wheeled out of. So those movies don't scare me. If I can kill it, I'm not scared of it. I'm good with heat and better with a blade than anyone I know. The movies that "scare" (none of them really do because I'm a man. Not a kid) are the ones with ghosts and possessed people (my favorite horror sub-genre).

  12. I LOVE anything with Micheal Pitt in it. I think he's the most underrated actor of our time. He doesn't do many movies and he's very selective. However, he's known as a "difficult" actor. Supposedly that was the reason Boardwalk Empire killed his character off at the end of season 2. Too many creative differences. I just love how he can deliver any emotion flawlessly.

    I love this movie and while I didn't know all of this, I did catch and like that they were breaking the 4th wall. I don't know why people didn't like it. It's perfect if you understand what is really happening. This is one of my favorite underrated movies.

  13. Good review. Made sense of a senseless and disturbing movie

  14. also interesting: the story of the movie "blair witch project" (1999) is not about a witch at all. you dont see any witch in the movie. you dont see anything supernatural at all. everyone they ask about the witch is clueless. So where does this lead to? The real story is that the two guys plot to kill the woman thats with them. They make up this blair witch story so shes goes on a trip with them to find out more about the mysterious witch. She is so emotionally focussed on this. So the guys make all the sounds in the wood, build those twig signs and they made this bloody teeth/hair thing the woman will see when she leaves the tent. its all manipulation. the woman is stressed so she cant think clearly and blindly follows the guys. Remember there was NOTHING supernatural going on. The only things that happened could be completely made by a human person.

  15. Who's weakness was responsible for the shooting of fatty, and the remote control scene?

  16. I think your interpretation is very correct with good insights.

  17. The weekly upload streak continues…barely.

  18. Not bad…nice video! I think I underrated the remake (haven't seen the original), I used think about it as one of Hanekes weakest films, It was actually the 1st film from Michael Haneke I saw, I definitely wasn't ready for it, thought it's some genre thriller. I almost hated it, while at the same time enjoying some uniqe things it did. Now loving his Caché (Hidden, 2005), and seeing this video , I think it's time to go back and watch both films back to back, thank you!

  19. Interesting review thank you as always.
    Off screen is often better.

  20. Love this movie! Though I of course love the original Austrian version more. It's weird. I know it's the exact same film with the exact same script and same director. But the director thought making it a Hollywood movie would improve it, but that's where I disagree. Making it a Hollywood movie takes away from the realism and from our empathy for the characters.

  21. i just love the way u speak on your videos and how you edit them. please, just keep doing your videos, they're amazing!
    regards from Brazil!

  22. I agree with your assessment. Makes sense to me.

  23. Since there's no survival then there's no story, please tell me why they didn't rewind when the little boy run out? Should we consider it as a real or fantasy movie? The story make no sense it's just a real bulll shhhit … I watch many movies without survivals and I enjoy it, but not this one. Because 2 of the hostages already run out of the house in a big distance of forest and a big lake, it shouldn't be that easy to bring them back. This is the worst movie ever of all the time

  24. Making a movie to criticize a type of movie is the definition of pretentious as fuck. Only deepens my dislike of this shit movie.

  25. I don't get why they have to remake this it's literally the same from the original and I mean literally they didn't even change a single thing from it the lines, the scenes, the sequence. Like wtf?

  26. Garage movie. Painfully boring. Not creative. Any credit this has gotten is too much.
