Back in 1999 I remember thinking this film had at least a couple redeeming qualities although watching it again I can't think of one beyond Amy Irving reprising her role as Sue Snell. This film is loaded with bad cliches and is a who's-who's of late 1990's teen films. Before you can say She's All That you are treated to 90's tunes showhorned into every scene, dated pop culture references, 2-D characters and a totally unbelieveable love story. I don't think I'll need to revisted this one again.
Watched this again for the first time probably since 2002:
-Very cheap looking. Takes about 40 minutes to adjust to the look of the film.
-Bad Cgi effecrts.
-Bad, forced, early 2000's "modern" slang.
-Many actors too old to play high school students.
-The bad ending shoehorned on to set up a possible TV series.
-First and formost Angela Bettis. Bettis' performance as Carrie is definitely the most awkward and uncomfortable portrayal of Carrie White committed…
Hands down the silliest and least scary film in the franchise. Does have it's fun moments though. I was really into this film when it came out in '91 because of the 3D "Freddy-Vision" but even then didn't love much about it beyond that. Feels more like a comic book/Looney Tunes mash up more than a horror film.
Well today marks the 20th anniversary of Jason goes to Hell's theactrical opening so I decided to kick back and pretend I was back in that old 2 screen theater I first saw the film in 20 years ago. Easily the worst of the Friday films IMO. This film is bad in only that way that an early 90's horror sequel can be; Desperate, half baked ideas trying to inject something new into an old franchise by adding silly over…
