Creative Loafing

The problem with this outing, which marked Perkins' directorial debut, is that it largely plays like a run-of-the-mill slasher flick.

[Blu-ray Review] Worth a look, but creatively falls victim to a series that slowly declined with each new entry.

Perkins tries to imitate Hitchcock's visual style, but most of the film is made without concern for style of any kind, unless it's the bludgeoning nonstyle of Friday the 13th.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Not just some actor who has been given a chance to direct, Perkins has a style and, like fellow director-actors Orson Welles and Clint Eastwood, knows his own persona, knows how to photograph and light himself for the proper effect.

The whole enterprise is dependent almost entirely upon self-referential incidents and attitudes for its effect, and it eventually becomes wearying.

any fan of the Hitchcock classic whose curiosity was snagged by Psycho II should find something of interest to see here.

A twisted tale of sexuality, religion and misogyny

It is strong in parodying the original, so fans should look out for it so long as they've got a sense of humour.

It has a cast of talented, self-effacing actors, who don't upstage the material, and an efficient screenplay by Charles Edward Pogue, who doesn't beat you over the head to prove that he has a sense of humor.

The movie was directed by Perkins, in his filmmaking debut. I was surprised by what a good job he does.
