It commits hard to what it's depicting and how badly it wants to amuse & disgust the audience.

Becomes little more than a typical--if highly atmospheric--slasher film, complete with the cheesy dialogue and gimmicky conclusion.

Generates a respectable amount of suspense and takes a few unexpected turns while covering familiar territory.

There's some mind-numbing dialogue as teenagers spout philosophical soundbites about Life and Death, but it's worth the wait just to see a guy's head sliced in half by a sheet of steel.

It's an adrenaline-fuelled film full of big jolts, black humour and a nicely building sense of foreboding and dread.
