The satirical elements are strong. But "New Year, New You" mainly works well when it isn't too broad.
This isn't Takal's best work, but it still deserves a "like" from genre fans tired of the same monsters and killers they always see.
What's most enthralling about this lean and mean thriller is its characters. There's something chillingly familiar in each.
Scenes are well-set even if aggression only reaches so far, but concerning Into The Dark's young roster, New Year, New You is a favorably dangerous soirée worth a brisk 80ish minutes of persuasive party paranoia.
Overall, NEW YEAR, NEW YOU is a decent slasher flick that tackles the cliches that the New Year can bring with it and successfully turns those cliches over on their respective heads.
There's more than enough material to last this story and at no point does it feel like the episode is padded for content.
Takal effectively plays with the notion of who the antagonist is here, and throws an unexpected turn into the story near the hour mark.
New Year, New You might not catch your attention right away, but once you give it a chance the cat and mouse chase will have you hooked.
Takal's directorial ability may keep "New Year, New You" from being the worst Into the Dark yet, but its dull tropes and scene-chomping acting are resolutely rotten.
