Here is a round up of quotes from around the web. We’ll add more when they become available, so check back.

It’s the best movie I’ve seen in theaters in such a long time.” … “There are some moments where I just jumped out of my chair. It’s really great.” … “I wish Raimi wasn’t doing Spider-Man 4 and he just did a ton of movies like this. It’s so great to see he still has it.”

AICN (scooper named MiscalledHobos): “This movie…oh man. I didn’t realize how much I missed having this living piss scared out of me.” … “his movie was sincerely fantastic.

It was everything I hoped it would be and more.” … “For a PG-13 movie it was pretty hardcore and in your face disgusting.
