I hate grapes! I can't stand grapes! I loathe grapes! All kinds of grapes! I hate purple grapes! I hate green grapes! I hate grapes with seeds! I hate grapes without seeds! I hate them peeled and non-peeled! I hate grapes in bunches, one at a time, or in groups of twos and threes! I fucking hate grapes!

This film isn't hokey or predictable, it knows exactly what it is doing: messing with the audience and having a great time. The dialogue between Joe and Kate is some of the best, quirkiest, and offbeat genius I have heard come out of a forte of slasher comedies from the 80's. The film satisfies. It placates. It delivers the bloody goods on so many levels. It's hard for me to explain the appeal; most people hate it unjustly. It seems to come from this pit of frustration the writer(s) feel, exploding in a wave of nihilistic apathy and brilliant gore. It defines the eighties. It defines the way people feel and is entertainment on an elevated level. It is classic.
