[Note: With the film finally released on DVD here in the UK (the Us release was over a year ago), here’s a reposting of our review of Fox Trap, now retitled Don’t Blink for its UK debut]
After a cruel prank goes wrong on prom night leaving a young girl disabled, the group go their separate ways and try to leave the incident in the past. Eight years later the group are invited to a country side manor for a reunion. Things may seem strange at first, but as the night goes on they realise they can’t escape the past and find themselves at the mercy of a masked killer out for revenge.
Don’t Blink manages to recreate the classic slasher genre for a modern audience, although it still maintains the characterises and formula which made the revenge slashers films of the 80’s so popular.
