A zombie apocalypse threatens the sleepy town of Little Haven - at Christmas - forcing Anna and her friends to fight, slash and sing their way to survival, facing the undead in a desperate race to reach their loved ones. But they soon discover that no one is safe in this new world, and with civilization falling apart around them, the only people they can truly rely on are each other.
On the eve of their high school graduation, two academic superstars and best friends realize they should have worked less and played more. Determined not to fall short of their peers, the girls try to cram four years of fun into one night.
Early 1970s. Four strangers check in at the El Royale Hotel. The hotel is deserted, staffed by a single desk clerk. Some of the new guests' reasons for being there are less than innocent and some are not who they appear to be.
Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities, take fate into their own hands, and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.

I didn't really know what to expect when I watched this but I looked up ratings before and set the bar low. I was pleasantly surprised that I really enjoyed it.
I can see how some people wouldn't like it from the dialogue because it is very modern but I think that it depicts a real view of how most teenagers and young adults think and talk in 2019. Also, another thing I see people talking about is the fact that it's unrealistic. It's a movie. It's fiction. It's an imaginary world. That's what makes movies so cool, am I right?
But I don't see how people can deny the fact that 1. The acting is great. Like I said, I set the bar low going in and I was looking for things that made it a bad movie. But I can honestly say that the acting wasn't cheesy and unconvincing at all. 2. The cinematography was done very well and there were some standout moments where I was like, this has its own unique style. I was impressed. 3. It was gory and shocking as hell and I think that it's hard to pull off that level of shock factor nowadays. 4. The message! I loved it. And I think a lot of people could benefit from hearing it and thinking on it and applying it to their own life.
For the last half of this movie, my mouth was on the floor. I definitely recommend.
