More of a film fan than a film critic 🤓
Favourites are always my four favourite watches from last month
I really like the first one as a pioneering slasher despite its flaws.
I adore the second one for how bonkers it is and for doing something entirely different with it.
I commend this third one for trying something different again but unfortunately the romantic horror comedy direction it goes in did very little for me. It’s trying to be TEEN WOLF directed by John Waters but it’s not fun enough or clever enough for either.
I’m watching the 2008 remake next and I have a sneaking suspicion it’s going to be even worse than this 🙈
Made 7 years after the first film and with absolutely nothing in common with it except the prom theme, this bonkers sequel is an improvement on the original in every way! It is so much more than just a slasher!
It is basically A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET meets CARRIE but with a bit of THE EXORCIST thrown in for good measure! Some of the set pieces are absolutely fucking insane and the kills are super imaginative! Definitely an under appreciated gem!
It’s been over a decade since I last saw this but I remembered it being one of the better remakes from the naughties.
It wasn’t quite as good as I remembered but it’s still a solid remake. The changes they make are interesting rather than sacrilegious, and the addition of R. Lee Ermey as the Sheriff was all kinds of messed up awesome! I also forgot how stunning Jessica Biel is! She did a good job as the final girl…
