    Anybody ever seen this amazing movie? (called "C'est arrive pres de chez vous." in its original Belgium title).

    I hear a Criterion version is coming soon this fall.

    Can't wait!!

    For those who don,t know what this movie is about, it has a similar concept to Blair Witch project. It's a mockumentary about a serial killer (who is quite hilarious... but disturbingly crazy) who talks about his "profession" and gives killing tips.

    It's a must see!

    I missed it during the theatrical run, but am planning on purchasing the Criterion DVD blind.

    This film leaves me feeling unclean--and it's so compelling at the same time. I've seen it twice, once in a commercial theater and then on IFC. The audience was disturbing: Many were still laughing well into the rape scene. Ugh.

    Oh, I'll probably get this.

    It is a sick, sick movie and I love it [​IMG]
    If Criterion does indeed release this in the fall it is a no-brainer purchase for me.

    This film is excellent and darkly hilarious! It has been a favorite of mine since I first saw it, and I'm definitely getting the DVD. How about that scene with the kid and the pillow, eh? [​IMG]

    A definite must-buy. Disturbing for sure but also original and compelling.

    My favorite scene:
    When the two documentary crews run into each other in the warehouse
