You know, some people are simply against the term torture porn. Part of me can really understand that, but there's also a huge part of me that couldn't disagree with that more. The fact of the matter is that some people watch horror movies simply to watch unlikable characters die horrific deaths. Why do you think Saw was so successful, for the most part, in spite of its declining quality with each successive installment? It's because people got off, perhaps not in the traditional sense, on seeing detestable people die in a gruesome fashion. So, really, as much as some people hate the term, in some cases it really does fit. And this is one of those cases. And people can use whatever term they want to describe a film, I'm not an elitist to say how a person can or can't express themselves in regards to a film. And, to be honest, in spite of the negative reviews, I think that this is one of the few horror remakes, and I honestly haven't seen the original, but I think this capture the spirit of 80s slashers. And 80s horror movie in general, there's a B-movie quality to the proceedings that makes watching, actually, quite a bit of fun even if the film isn't what I would call a traditionally good horror film. I think the film tries to make its point about sisterhood in a pretty fucked up way. Like the film spends almost its entire narrative pitting Cassidy and Jessica against each other. Jessica being the manipulator in trying to cover up Megan's murder to protect her own ass while doing so under the guise of sisterhood and protecting the other sisters. It's clear she's doing it out of selfish reasons and not because she actually cares about any of them. So as the film is ending, somehow, I think there's a certain amount of respect between Cass and Jess, despite the fact that Jess was the one that got them into that situation in the first place. Of course, not that it's justified that there's this random guy killing the sisters for what they've done, but they did make their own bed, so to speak, by refusing to do things responsibly. So the film trying to make Cass and Jess sort of 'respect' each other at the end doesn't feel earned, in the least. Particularly because Jessica, literally, spends the entire film being a bitch to everyone. You just want her to die right from the get go. And good on Leah Pipes for doing a good enough job at portraying this character, because Jessica immensely unlikable. Jessica's "redemption", if you can even call it that, is not earned. It just feels like lazy writing honestly. Some of the the deaths are actually pretty funny and entertaining. The laundry chute death was my favorite. So, essentially, Mickey, Claire's boyfriend, is trying to flee from the killer. So he finds a laundry chute nearby and he tries to escape through it. Mickey is then killed with the Swiss army tire iron and he's stuck in the chute, with his feet sticking out. This guy looked so stupid that it was obvious that this death was done for the LOLZ. And when Cass and Jess take Mickey's phone and he falls down the chute was even better. Lots of LOLZ to be had with Mickey and his death. The acting is fine, I think Carrie Fisher is great here and should've had a larger role to play. But, honestly, this might not be the best horror movie ever made, but I did have some fun watching it. Perhaps it was charming in its badness, but I didn't mind watching this at all. Wouldn't exactly give it a glowing recommendation, but it's fun for a laugh with pals.
