I really wanted to love this, with all the talent that's involved. I just found it to be enjoyable. The acting is really good, the kills are quick and brutal(mostly offscreen stuff), and I like the way the film was shot. I just found it to be a little unoriginal and the ending was rushed. Overall The Town That Dreaded Sundown is a quick, fun, but very unoriginal horror slasher that's worth a rental.
An incredibly creepy set up, with a lackluster payoff. I really started to love this movie, it was weird, mysterious, and super creepy. The first hour and 15 minutes were solid, filled with dread and suspense, and even some humor, I just wished the ending was wasn't so abrupt and really weird.
So the film follows this couple, a young college girl, and a big guy who lives with his mom. Each winning a "prize" which was a camera with instructions that told them to film everything, and then the film becomes one big game of find and complete the clues with lots of scary scenes. I just wish I understood the ending better and maybe I would have enjoyed the entire film. Definitely worth a watch just be ready for the ending.
