Independent? Very. Bad? Not even close.
26 April 2017 | by Louis-Éric BaconSee all my reviews

While it may not have enough humor to be considered horror comedy, this is the type of movie that doesn't take itself seriously. Probably due to the low budget and inexperienced cast and crew, the whole thing looks like a YouTube video. A rather good YouTube video though.

It's not a slasher, it's barely horror. It's way more of a thriller, with some good character development that is never too complicated or too simple. It's done just right, there's some original dialogue and subplots (the romance aspect surely was interesting and more realistic than in most movies).

If this movie had been made in the 70's or 80's, it probably would've achieved the cult status by now. I don't think it has what it needs to be a classic, but it's definitely worth a check if you have an open mind.
