I picked this up due to seeing the trailer. It looked like it had potential. Which it does. It has a great deal of potential.
It just doesn’t make it. Close enough, though, but…
Hey. Why don’t we just check it out for ourselves. This one’s a bit more rambling than usual (despite the short length), so beware of that.
Oh, and least I forget, here is a couple of notes:
One: It may help to preview the following essay on Slasher movies I’ve prepared. It covers my beliefs on what the sub-genre is and how a good Slasher flick should run, with various terms. If you know what a Final Girl is, you might not need it. Otherwise, feel free to click here and catch up.
Two: Rule of thumb here, I write the upcoming Viewing Experience first and everything else after that. (In fact this part of the review was ironically the last one worked on.) While I mop up afterwards, it’s sort of my thoughts as I watch. Things don’t always mess neatly there and elsewhere. Sort of like this film.
Blathering done. Let’s get to business.
