Why revive the archetypal slasher movie in 2018? What is this for? Why does this exist? If the modern new twist is supposed to be that three generations of women outlive the men and defeat the villain on their own, how is that really all that different from John Carpenter's original or Ridley Scott's Alien, both from the dark ages of the 1970s?

I can't really entertain the notion that this is some kind of feminist reinvention of the slasher movie, when it's still basically two hours of women getting chased, stabbed, and bashed into things.
