Given how much impact this franchise has had on the horror genre, I was excited to dive into this franchise for the first time ever.
And this was a disappointing start to this franchise for me...
I know this was a low budget horror / thriller slasher. But it was just not inspiring to watch. It’s a proper drag and it’s only 1hr 30mins long. It’s boring. The pacing is not good.
The kills are meh. The low budget is definitely there.
It’s not Sam Raimi ‘Evil Dead’ quality, in all departments. I guess the ‘Scream’ franchise took most of the hype from this film. And I love that franchise.
A disappointing start to a first time franchise viewing.
