Sounds like each "chapter" is a slightly different mini-game with its own rules and mechanics.  Could be fun.

But holy crap, my tabletop group already has a huge backlog once we start back.

That's an ad.  I want it anyway.

They are correct that I cannot conceive its goodness.

This may be one of the smaller representations of Andre the Giant in any form.

A larger figure of Andre would be the norm.

I've given up on these types of games.

I got this for my son years ago and you need a PhD to learn to play it.
I've watched hours of online "how to play" videos and finally gave up!

I already have this, and it's pretty fun.

/I will also be getting that

This should be fun. Especially if there is a trivia element, as I can remember every line in the movie

yes, I'll be waiting for the reviews of actual full-game mechanics on Board Game Geek or one of the gaming subreddits.

I've been bitten before.

Ravensburger is a good company, their Horrified and other movie themed games have turned out well, I will be buying this without worrying about a review especially since its only $25.

Heh.  Good call.

Although it could be, if you want to make the game really interesting.

I highly recommend their Jaws game (sold at Target.)
