"I judge movies on whether or not I'm miserable"
- Mike Stoklasa
Yeah, I loved this. It bares a lot of similarities to New Nightmare in terms of tone and themes, except here we see a more refined and slick slasher flick that takes the meta commentary to the next level. The kills were tasteful but fun, the mystery element kept me invested until the final moments and can we talk about how great this Skeet Ulrich guy is in this? That performance was something else.

Glad I saw this alone because I was laughing hysterically at every second line of dialogue. It couldn't decide whether it wanted to be a toothless horror movie, a shitty teen drama, or edgy Avengers. They really should have leaned in to the dark horror aspects, but instead we ended up with this confused mess.
Racist Russian Anya Taylor-Joy with plasma sword and hand puppet is my new kink.
I was expecting more of a drama, but it's just a straight up comedy. And while it did manage to get a few yucks out of me, overall it's really just the most bland and generic execution they could have come through with for this great premise. Sad that among all these veteran actors, Zach Braff is the best part of the movie. Not to mention Red Letter Media did this exact premise 15 years ago!
