So-so slasher
4 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A friend recommended this horror film, swearing it was one of the best by Italian director Michele Soavi. Well, in all respect to my friend, if this is the best, I'd hate to see the worst. Now this isn't the worst piece of gore I've ever seen, but it certainly does not hold a candle (or hatchet or machete, etc.) to the horror classic of the 20th century. The kills are not that spectacular, the gore is not that gory and the surprises are not that surprising. What's most puzzling in the film is why anyone would put on - or go to see - the erotic play they were staging. The murdering in the movie is really the acting. Poor dialogue, characters you really don't care about and 80's music edited so horribly you'll wince at that alone. The Owl headpiece is interesting - and I can see how that can be frightening - but the ripping off of a costume for a killer's shocking appearance is no less straight thievery from how Jason got his hockey mask. Rent it cheap, just don't buy it.
