Rewatched Jun 30, 2012
This movie holds a place in horror history, because of the content and when it came out. Does it hold up in 2012? Sort of.
The rape stuff feels a bit drawn out and lazy. It could've easily been trimmed down and had the same effect.
Matthew, the mentally challenged, is incredibly stereotypical, so much that I don't even feel it's a real person. Guy with suspenders acts more like he's handicapped than Matthew.
The revenge kills definitely hold up. They actually save the movie. They are clever and they kill the slow guy first, classy.
I haven't seen the remake, but I hear it has some of the same problems, too much focus on the rape segment.
