    Picked this up as a DVD rental (hadn't heard of it before), it is a surprisingly good horror flick. Very good special effects, well acted, and some good spooks; not very bloody- more of a "something is going to jump out of the dark" type, which is a plus for me. Also has an alternate ending in the bonus area which I actually liked more than the one appearing on the movie.

    I liked this movie better the first time I saw it when it was called "Darkness Falls".

    It is basically the same plot. The "monsters" featured in the movie also seemed like a ripoff of the "facesucker" thing in Aliens. The alternate ending was interesting though.

    I like most horror movies, even the bad ones, but this one put me to sleep. OTOH, I watched House of 1,000 Corpses 4 times and many people think that it sucks, so I guess it's different strokes for different folks.

    I saw Darkness Falls, couldn't stand it, heard They was similar so I avoided it like the plague and have not yet seen it. I also saw HOuse of 1000 Corpses and loved it, bought the DVD and have enjoyed it a few times.

    I can't imagine how they are similar at all...

    Other than the creatures not being able to go in the light...

    There's a script floating around the net for THEY, it's ten times better than the movie was. The movie was the result of studio tampering and sadly feels choppy, and poorly done.

    I liked this movie, especially the ending. I was going to buy it but it's not worth the 22+ dollars BB wants for it. I will pick it up used if I can find it though.
