chad’s review published on Letterboxd:
I love it when movies are self-aware, aware of their genre, and aware of how cliche the scenes were in that genre. Kinda reminded me of The Cabin in the Woods. The movie just dragged towards the end, becoming redundant with all the movie jokes. Like, we get it, you're talking about scary movies in a scary movie! Anyway, Scream was a scooby doo-like horror film that seems to make fun of the genre while actually being a master at it.
Had fun watching this one, hope to have the same reaction with the other four.
ADDENDUM: Also reminded me of Funny Games because of getting the message around that violent movies take a toll on people's mental health!
