Lost After Dark: Old school surprise
18 November 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Many would have you believe that the slasher genre is dead, they'll tell you that if it weren't for Scream (1996) that it would have died a lot earlier.

I partially agree, it has been struggling for many years but occasionally something comes along that renews your faith in it. To an extent this is such a film.

With a real retro feel this is a paint by numbers slasher but written by someone who decided to colour blind it's viewers. What I mean by that is the film is outstandingly unpredictable and rarely goes the way you expect.

8 youngsters steal a school bus and drive to a secluded area to party but when it breaks down they find themselves under attack from a psychotic cannibal who proceeds to pick them off one by one.

The lack of originality damages it but the surprise writing, competent cast and delivery makes up for it.

A good enough watch for slasher fans.

The Good:

Couple of genuine surprises

Some decent writing

Real old school feel

Robert Patrick

Truly unpredictable

The Bad:

Wesley's afro can't have been real? Right?

Tad too dark

Reel missing thing was dumb

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

I don't want to get eaten by a cannonball either!

When the *sshole of the group has the right idea and nobody listens to him does that make the viewer an *sshole to for siding with him?
