lots of fun!
26 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

i loved the original, i saw it at a 5th grade slumber party. i must admit i enjoyed the new version too. sure it's a bit corny at times, but there are some great scares and if you just want to have fun, this is a good movie to watch! i thought the acting was just decent, but the girls are hot so who really cares? my girlfriend loved all the hot guys so i guess this movie has eye candy for everybody. the ending was the best part. so much gore, you can't go wrong. if you like movies like saw and hostel, then this is a good movie to rent or buy. i do think this is better than the sequels to hostel and saw for sure. those were terrible. in my opinion, just enjoy yourself and watch it!
