Top Notch Bubble Gum Horror
1 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Had to take a few minutes to sign up for an account so I could leave a review of this movie. I almost didn't bother watching it after reading a lot of negative reviews. Fortunately I ignored them when I realized they were mostly insulting all the things great bubble gum horror movies thrive on. Predictability, stereotyped high school characters, dumb decisions, trying too hard soundtracks and on and on.

Throw in some A list actors and the mention of minimal gore and it sounded like exactly the sort of Saturday night movie I was looking for. And it didn't disappoint at all. Joey King is really good. You can completely believe in the decisions her character makes. Phillipe is less douche bag then I've ever seen him and Sherilyn Fenn is still kicking which is fun to see.

The writing is really bang on for this type of movie other than the girl who says "hot sauce" and other stupid things that sound more like someone trying to parody bad dialogue. Same thing goes for the characters. I found most of their actions understandable. In reality people can and do make bad decisions. There's nothing here that makes you throw up your arms and say "Ah Come on! Nobody would do that!" That's a real deal breaker in a lot of horror movies.

In short, the perfect horror for fans of fun horror in the Final Destination vein.
