    Bryan Lienesch82 - The no-frills teens slasher knows what its about and doesn't deviate from a solid concept. It's a low-risk, moderate-reward plan that leads to glass-ceiling success.

    Drezzy80 - I cannot think of a better satire of slasher movies that didn't go into the realm of over-the-top comedy. The performances were solid enough for the movie and some of the wordplay and kills was inventive as hell. I also think that the second one being slightly worse than the first and the third being awful with the "reboot" sequel almost being on par with the original works in such a perfect way that is described in the series itself.

    Colin Flanagan74.6 - A little too tongue-in-cheek for its own good, but still delivers on fun.
