This was pretty cute! It’s not quite up to the level I was expecting based on the things I had heard, but it’s still a pretty clever little horror comedy slasher send-up.
All of the comparisons to The Final Girls is understandable except let’s face it, that’s a 5 star movie and this isn’t. Some of the acting is supe annoying. Like the “buff” muscle guy character literally mumbles half his lines and no, it’s not intentional. Also, the main love interest is really not the least bit interesting. She’s supposed to be this fierce black girl and I should have loved her but nah.
Still, Fran Kranz is great and I’ll watch Alyson Hannigan in anything so they make this totally worth watching. Also, extra half star for a delightful scene with a head getting chopped in half.
