    A sequel that sets the bar HIGH for so much of what was to come in the 80's slasher subgenre. Ginny remains my all-time favorite Final Girl after the (Prom) Queen, Jamie Lee.

    Why this became a terrific one-off slasher while far inferior ones got franchised remains a disappointing mystery.

    Margot Kidder calls her mom a "gold-plated whore," gets a child drunk, and is generally beautiful, profane, and awesome. All time crush.

    Second time I have watched it this year and I did enjoy seeing it through the lens of knowing the twist the second time around.

    Also, including it in my summer of slashers watch was helpful in seeing how Hitchcockian and giallo soaked it all is.

    All that said, this thing is not aging well. And as a fan of inclusivity and accurate representations I am okay with it getting increasingly left in the dust. Dennis Franz is forever though.
