    Friday the 13th Part 2

    ★★

    Sorry but I found this pretty dull. I'm not the biggest slasher fan anyway, but this was slow, predictable and uninspiring. There wasn't even any OTT eightiesness to it. I will continue watching the sequels, as I'm waiting for it to go a bit more bonkers!

    ★★★½

    Another time loop flick after 'Palm Springs' last night, but this one's more of a teen drama. It's well done, the two leads are good and it asks some interesting questions, but there was a bit too much teeny naval gazing for me. I liked it, but I don't think I'll be rewatching it!

    ★★★½

    There are some great shots, it's well directed and acted. The old home invasion trope is flipped up to create something new and the use of a blind guy really works to create heightened tension in certain scenes.

    However, after all the hype I was expecting something on par with Green Room or It Follows and sadly it didn't quite live up to either film. As nice as the opening shot was, I felt like it wasn't necessary and maybe gave too much away. I did still enjoy it and I'm looking forward to whatever Fede Alvarez does next.

    This film alone reinvigorated my love of 80s horror and it's still an absolute belter!

    I LOVE the score, the music, the cast, the film within a film, the bonkersness of it all, the gore, oh boy the gore is fantastic, the punks who just turn up, Tony, who channels his inner Mr T (he's actually even better in the second one though), the motorbike and sword combo, the helicopter and the ending, and everything else.

    To be honest 80s…
