    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    What a trip. I was cracking up most this movie because the premise was so ridiculous. What caught me off guard though was just how good the movie looked and how good the sound work was. The scoring was pretty great, but those guttural noises made by the victims was extremely effective. That ending was out of this world. Two brother pigs fighting with their dicks chainsaws over a woman strapped to a death trap

    I don't want to say…

    ★★½

    This was an above average slasher. Featuring a young Jason Alexander as the cool kid and written/produced by the Weinsteins before they were the Weinsteins. The raft stuff and the finale were easily my favorite parts. The movie dabbled in toxic male attitudes but I can't say there was a whole lot to it other than existing in the plot. It's definitely worth a first watch, but I doubt too many people are eagerly revisiting this one.

    This is a bonafide classic I had yet to watch. Glad I fixed that, it was amazing. The imagery is astounding. Just gorgeous. The setting of the decaying building over a dried out water bed was genius, especially in companion to the murky river crash scene in the opening and how the ending plays out. Candace Hilligoss was superb, and the roommate played up the skeevy alcoholic role wonderfully with a blend of terror and humor. The specter haunting Candace's character was excellently executed throughout the picture and gave me chills several times.

    This is one I could watch every year.

    My favorite superhero movie. Love the way this Clark/Superman is crafted. Kostner is a great Pa, and Ma's scene with Clark in the school is expertly made.

    Shannon absolutely rules as Zod, and the krypton opening is one of the coolest segments in any comic book movie. "You won't kill us yourself! You wouldn't dirty your hands but you'll damn us to a black hole for eternity! Jor-El was right! You're a pack of fools, every last one of you!"
