IMDB TRIVIA: The female filmmakers behind this remake of the 1982 slasher film promised to take "the best parts of its predecessor, scrapping the demeaning bits, and amping up the female gaze to eleven," though they didn't explain what that meant.
The sad person who wrote this could have just watched the film.
Clever, gory and filled with fun surprises. It starts somewhere you don't expect, goes somewhere you do, and then keeps twisting and turning without ever forgetting to deliver the slasher movie goods. I was a big fan of the director Danishka Esterhazy's previous film, THE BANANA SPLITS, so I'm glad to see her hot streak continues. And she is somehow doing it within the confines of Syfy's South African TV Movie arm!
Also, subtext is for cowards.
