Trivia

The revelation that Gertie slept with an autistic guy was scripted in a very mean-spirited way and Alia Shawkat had a real problem with it, so she decided to come up with her own dialogue. The writers and director have all praised her instincts in regards to the scene. See more »

Such A Great Surprise
9 October 2015 | by HorrorOverEverythingSee all my reviews

I am fresh off of watching this and wow, this was a lot of fun. I was afraid that this was going to turn out like every other recent film with a young cast and be riddled with MTV type clichés but it wasn't at all. The cast was great and film as a whole was pretty funny and brutal (for a PG-13 Film).

The premise was great and original, they really came up with a clever way to spoof the 80's slasher genre. The sub plot was even well done and made for some fairly emotional scenes. The film worked on all levels and was blast to watch. I really enjoyed it

It's weird but when I really like a film I find it hard to say a whole lot about it. When I hate a film I can shoot out four or five paragraphs no problem, but I enjoyed this film so much that I am finding it hard to come up with much to say. Just watch it.

8/10
