The saving grace is the obvious awareness of the familiar tropes, coupled with a clear effort to use them in clever, surprising ways.
Rough around the edges, but it is also frequently funny in its adherence to clichés and does boast an energetic tone.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
The plot is derivative, the dialogue cumbersome and cliché-ridden.
...succeeds absolutely at what it aspires to ... it's an amusing little "midnight movie" built mostly out of off-the-rack elements.
Intermittently fun and occasionally witty, with just the right touch of self-awareness.
| Original Score: 3/5
If there were a 99 Cents Store for movies, cheapo pic -- designed more for lonely male geeks in their teens and above than the date crowd -- would fit nicely on the shelves.
All impenetrably dark nighttime shots, politely telegraphed shocks and limp, transparent misogyny masquerading as genre-savvy hijinks.
A solid, whirlwind of a horror movie, with more twists and turns than a hula hoop competition.
