    this is punk rock. 

    80’s new york tenement gets taken over by the baddest gang members you could imagine. none of them have a moral compass, it’s awesome. one scene is not for the faint of heart and is way too cringe inducing for the times (and for the 80s)  natch. 

    first roberta findlay film i’ve seen, i’m not gonna do a deep dive, but i’m glad i saw this one. 

    as for story, was shocked how well the movie…

    reminded me of Final Destination, which made me realize how much i love final destination. 

    pretty fun kills, but missed that little bit of oomph you want from your teen horror films. nothing *shocking* or *new* which is a bummer with Del Toro as a producer. But still fun!

    I can watch this movie anytime, anyday... this falls into "perfect film" category, where obviously, no, it's not perfect, obviously i know that, but in terms of watchability and one of those scripts where it just feels like writing meets directing meets acting and tone, they got it spot on.

    i... has a good time. this is one of those movies where you’re like, “I COULD WRITE THIS KINDA MOVIE AND—“ but for what it is i think they played it well!  i thought the direction was legit good too.
