Until the first horror elements surface, this really plays out like a comedy, but don’t let it fool you; this is a dark fucking flick! The actresses pretty much all overact, in an effort to look like they’ve been friends forever, and even that dissipates when shit hits the fan. Some are cute, some gorgeous, some sexy, and some are a little overweight by the movie’s standards.
If you have a sports uniform fetish, thank me later. There are lots of pissing jokes, and perhaps that’s your thing, too. There are several takes on common horror movie tropes, and some work better than others. I’ve rarely seen sports integrated into slashers so harmoniously. There’s gore so extreme it makes you appreciate the comfort of your seat.
You’ll hate the villains the moment you see them. They’re extremely brutal, relentless, and equally stupid. You can tell their parents are siblings. The protagonists have no notion of double-tapping and will eventually regret it. There’s a singing cowboy who doesn’t belong, here, and somehow turns this film into a musical. He’ll surely ruin your experience every time he shows up.
The Almanac of Terror 2019: 89 Years of Horror Movie Statistics

The following recommendation lists are based on 2000 horror movie reviews. They were extracted from a database and formatted for this book. Tales of Terror (www.terror.ca) is an online “gamified” tool designed for horror fans, students, authors and filmmakers. “Gamification” is the adaptation and transformation of tangible concepts into empirical games. Not unlike sport publications, fantasy leagues and role-playing games, the Almanac of Terror mixes and aggregates different statistics, facts, ratings and opinions. Most of the lists included in this book are sorted from best to worst according to their overall score. Some lists are sorted by pertinence. Our classification method uses genres, subgenres, ambiances and antagonists. Our different ratings are as follows: stars, story, creativity, action, quality, gimmick, and rewatchability. We sometimes use the “creepiness” factor when populating certain lists.
