    Such a bizarre oddity of a film. It's ballsy for attempting what it did though. It's a biting satire of the slasher genre, way before Scream pulled it off. A movie within a movie that states being a sequel to movie that doesn't exist. Confused yet? Don't worry, you'll be plenty more lost as you watch it. It's the editing that does it no favors. Still, it has some interesting stuff going on, and gets points for trying to be original.

    Predictable, unamusing, sad and dull. Not even entertaining. This confusing mess is better left unseen!

    It's an early attempt at some sort of meta horror deconstruction but it's not well realized or intelligent enough to pull it off and the editing between the 3 separate timelines is poorly handled making it a chore to keep your eyes open long enough for some blood to splash on screen.

    How do you get your wife to watch a horror movie? Tell her George Clooney is in it. When it turns out it's a bit part that barely lasts 10 minutes, she quickly loses interest. This is low budget crap trying to make light of the fact that it is low budget crap. Just doesn't play well. The pacing is terrible. There are no scares. Some T&A and Maureen McCormick of Brady Bunch fame are the only good parts.

    I expected a very slap stick comedy with horror themes, and it did have moments of slap stick, but they were so far between, and none of the jokes were good. It seemed like they were trying to give it comedy by purposely making it bad. Yes bad movies can be very entertaining, but this one didn't have me sold. It did get better near the end.

    Surprisingly clever - if ultimately unsuccessful - take on the slasher genre. Bonus points for featuring a pre-fame (and mullet-sporting) George Clooney and Maureen McCormick (Marcia on The Brady Bunch) as a cop who, for no reason that's ever explained, gets turned on by violence. A weird curiosity.

    School spirit at Crippen High has never been this dead. A movie crew fakes their own grisly murders where they are filming a horror movie in a closed high school that was the scene of several unsolved murders in 1981. Watchable horror that is moderately successful at adding humour. Notable perhaps for a decent box cover and for the small role for George Clooney.

    Can't believe I didn't see this back in the 80's!!! Spoof horror with several familar faces from the 80's (George Clooney is one!). It is funny and entertaining. It bounces back and forth in time which jumbles the flow of the movie. Some parts were so over the top that I just could help but laugh out loud. The acting is sub par but it makes up for it in laughs. This is worth a watch on an 80's throwback horror night.

    Lame. Only watched it to see George Clooney and he gets killed off right away.
