cliches, poor acting, and high percentage failure at the very thing it is supposed to accomplish.

I'm sick of parody, I'm looking at you Zombieland.

I love that hokey cheesy fun movie. And that last shot, well it promised more dagnabbit!

from the Horror genre. Go catch a disease, or a leprechaun. In space.

Especially because of "cliches, poor acting, and high percentage of failure"? That could be tacked onto any genre of movie besides horror.

Obviously someone hasn't seen "Let the Right One In".

How would a 12 year old and kiddie looking vampire evade police detection after the final murders? By travelling on train together? Wouldn't they get busted within 96 hours no matter where they went, because they left a witness ALIVE at the murder scene? FAIL.

Who says they left him alive? We only saw him alive in the last shot, not what happens after that. <p> And besides, who says you have to take the movie literally. Maybe it was all just a fantasy by Oskar and Elie was a figment of his imagination...

90% crap, 10% good.

The old figment of the imagination line, the last refuge of a deluded fan boy who can't deal with their beloved "master piece" having major flaws.

...to Gore Shriek? It was my favorite horror comic growing up, which probably explains a lot.

That is one of the things the director implied. He mentions it in several interviews.

But their are cliches, bad acting and failure to maintain tone in all genres. And as Conti pointed out, there are a small percentage of these movies that stand out, with original concepts, sincere performances, and, yeah, even some good old atmosphere of dread. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but for some of us, it's worth sifting through all the nuggets to find the occasional gem.
