A young woman grieving the loss of her mother, a famous scream queen from the 1980s, finds herself pulled into the world of her mom's most famous movie. Reunited, the women must fight off the film's maniacal killer.
The film includes multiple slasher movie references, including Friday the 13th (the camp location), Hellraiser (the pins in the makeup head, "nailed it!"), Carrie (the bucket of "blood"), and Halloween (large chef's knife). See more »
It's a delightful and original mix of a slasher, musical, and horror comedy.
This film is excellent - but it may not be for you if you don't enjoy both irreverent musical comedies -and- slasher films of both the serious and guilty pleasure variety.
So if you really enjoyed Pitch Perfect, Scream, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and have seen more than a few stage musicals, then this might just make your night.
The only reason this doesn't have a better rating (its currently at a 5, which to me is a crime) is because viewers come to it expecting a slasher, and hate the musical comedy, OR they come to it expecting a musical comedy, and don't like the gore. Or they come to it to see meatloaf - who here plays and sings very much against type, and feel cheated.
This is smart, amusing, and will tickle the right people in the right places.
