I wasn't going to see this one until Blu Ray anyway, but this tragedy wouldn't have stopped me from seeing it in a theater. Terrible. Midnight movies are supposed to be fun, a gathering of fans, not a killing ground for some psycho. My thoughts and prayers to everyone scarred by this horrible incident.
I'll never forget seeing this at a sneak preview in Seattle, it came after a showing of Neil Diamond's The Jazz Singer and people were allowed to stay and watch if they wanted. You never seen so many people BOLT for the exits once Altered States started ramping up into the weirdness! It was hilarious! Guess Neil Diamond fans couldn't take Ken Russell. I'll be buying this one on Blu, for sure.
