No Copyright[edit]

I don't understand the comment about copyright. It's my understanding that copyright is automatically given to all films. Does it mean that the film has been released to the public domain, or merely that the film carries no copyright notice? --203.217.68.248 (talk) 09:48, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Actually, 1978 and pre-1978, ALL FILMS had to include the Copyright Symbol, the Word Copyright or the abbreviation Copr. to be registered for copyright protection. MrJohnQuigley (talk) 17:33, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Plot Synopsis[edit]

There were some major errors in the plot synopsis of this article. Having just watched the movie myself a few minutes ago (on YouTube), I went ahead and fixed the errors. Kheph777 (talk) 06:10, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

I'll review this one shortly. I read If Chins Could Kill back when it was first released, and enjoyed the story of how they created Within the Woods. One thing I notice straight away is that you might want to change the tense about the remake in aftermath to post-tense as it has now been released (and probably stick a link into it as well). Miyagawa (talk) 12:43, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

Sorry for the delay, this is still on my radar. I've been trying to track down my copy of If Chins Could Kill so I could provide a little extra double checking on the references (which I'm sure are fine anyway, but I thought it might be uniquely helpful). Anyway, I can't find it. So I'll get to reviewing the article this evening. Miyagawa (talk) 10:30, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

Images: They all meet the licencing requirements, however two things to note - the infobox image could do with a caption to say whether it was the theatrical release poster or a VHS cover or whatever. Also, the captions shouldn't have links in them where there are also links already in the article itself. You only need to add links where something isn't otherwise linked in the article.
Links: Just a single duplicate link - Indian burial ground in the second to last sentence of Background.
Lead: You've linked to Dollar sign with $. Might be better piped through to United States dollar instead.
Plot: Not sure about the Indian Burial Ground link. That goes through to a specific cemetery in Rhode Island.
You've missed out (Mary Valenti) after Shelly.
Filming: Can you add any example(s) of Raimi's bizarre ideas?

Prose is good, citations and referencing is great. Very enjoyable article. I'll pop this one on hold while those handful of things are picked up. Miyagawa (talk) 21:23, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

Tried my best to fix your requests (specially without the book - I only did a "drive by takeover nom" as the previous nominator quit the wiki), see if it's enough. igordebraga 06:10, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

No worries. If my copy of it turns up at some point then I'll take a look to see if it specifies any of those ideas. Otherwise this looks good, I made a couple of tweaks but I think that this now meets the GA criteria. Miyagawa (talk) 18:33, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
