Storyline

When Max (Taissa Farmiga) and her friends reluctantly attend a tribute screening of an infamous '80s slasher film that starred Max's late mother (Malin Akerman), they are accidentally sucked into the silver screen. They soon realize they are trapped inside the cult classic movie and must team up with the fictional and ill-fated "Camp Bloodbath" counselors, including Max's mom as the shy scream queen, to battle the film's machete-wielding, masked killer. With the body count rising in scene after iconic scene, who will be THE FINAL GIRLS left standing and live to escape this film? Written by Vertical Entertainment

Trivia

Mimi asks the Hunky Hiker, "Where's the beef?" This was the catchphrase from an infamous commercial for the Wendy's fast food chain which has been endlessly lampooned and referenced since the commercial's debut in 1984. See more »

Goofs

In the original showing of the movie at the theatre, Nancy tells the story of Billy at the slumber party, THEN gets killed by Billy while waiting to have sex with Kurt. Inside the movie, Nancy goes to have sex with Kurt on the first day, about mid-day, which means she would have been killed by Billy BEFORE telling the story of Billy that night. 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
