Hella fun!
25 August 2001 | by (Oregon) – See all my reviews

I think this is one of the best horror movies ever made. The cliches are wonderful (and plentiful!) and the acting by Larry Drake was superb. While the plot may be systematic, the way people are killed are brilliant, as are the puns that go along with it. A strong cast backs this movie. A must see for horror fans!
