The Town That Dreaded Sundown Reviews

April 16, 2015
Not a straight remake of the 1976 cult horror movie, The Town That Dreaded Sundown is more a self-referential homage that takes the original film's legacy and embellishes it.

It's an odd, if somewhat original, way of playing with sequel conventions: the plot exists in a reality where the original film also exists. But outside of knowing winks, this is cookie cutter carnage.

Clever enough, but forgets to be exciting.

A clever concept and stylish execution (in both senses) aren't quite enough to make this achingly meta remake/reboot/sequel stand out from the slasher pack.

The 'American Horror Story' team remakes the cult 1976 slasher with gimmicky, mostly unscary results.
