Quotes

Jami: People are saying the Phantom is back; that after 60-some years he's come back and we need to be ready. The Phantom is our dirty secret. Everyone knows some piece of the story but the whole truth has been all but buried. Most of the people alive back then are no longer with us, or they just don't want to remember. But everything comes back, the past is alive, all around us.

nice slasher
22 May 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

anyone into masked killers killing people and revealing their identity at the very end, you can't go too wrong here.

Although the killer uses a gun a bit too much, and there's no decent death scenes in here, there's enough for slasher fans to give this a watch, I liked the way that pretty much as soon as the killer is revealed, unlike most other films where they talk or chase each other for another half an hour, this one just concludes pretty sharpish.

has a bit of a surprise at the end... makes no sense, but might be a pleasant surprise for people who spend the whole film guessing who the killer is.

it's no scream, but if you like one you'll like the other
