This movie by no means is perfect. It is a fast paced little flick with a little bit of subverted tropes to keep it feeling a little fresh. This is by no means a top-notch horror film either. But just like the 80s when the classics that are now being remade or deemed as terrible, these are their modern-day equivalent. if one goes and trying to over analyze every little aspect of the movie and compare it to the original 1974 film, you are obviously going to have a bad time.

Horror fans are honestly the most spoiled of all genre fans. They scream they want content like the old days, and when they get it, they throw it aside like a petulant little child. Then when they ask for original content and somebody puts something of substance out, it gets dissected unnecessarily into the most my new pieces so that I can be compared to other cinema and rendered derivative or copying something else. Viewers need to make up their minds and simply take what is happening at face value...

People just like you love and appreciate the same films that you watched, but they wanna bring it to the modern age. If that doesn't show a sincere love for the art of filmmaking that they would imitate another artists work-which is the sincerest form of flattery-they need a reality check.

In all honesty this is a fun little flick with a little bit of a nasty little twist thrown on it. It has some fun, sick little moments with genuine flair, if you're willing to look past the simplicity of the plot, save for one big change as to the origin of the villain, you will have an exciting time that's by no means going to break the barrier of new age horror, but usher in a sort of love letter to the craft of slasher film creation. Keep it simple, keep it fun, keep it rolling, and just keep it entertaining.

In the end, that's all we want isn't it? To be entertained? If one goes into this movie expecting absolutely nothing they will get their moneys worth for a little adrenaline kicking feminist themed horror that throws modern fears of girls who this time around aren't going to grovel and plead to not die; they're going to fight back and show they aren't going to submit to death just yet.
