Starring Neve Campbell, Skeet
Ulrich, Courteney Cox, Drew Barrymore.
Serial killers are loose in a small town. Several nubile teens
are slaughtered, and Campbell, a girl with a traumatic past, must
come to grips with the one-year anniversary of her mother's brutal
murder. She must also deal with Ulrich, her horny boyfriend,
and Cox, a sleazy tabloid reporter who is still investigating
Campbell's mother's death. Can Campbell break the cardinal rules
of slasher flick survival and unmask the serial killer without
losing her life?
Contributing Genres: Comedy, High School Psychodrama, Mystery, and Slasher.
Dialogue: The script is simple, lingo-filled high-school speak. The humor is not in the dialogue, but in the incredible stupidity of the characters.
Monster Type: A cheaply-costumed psychopath with a 12-inch blade on the loose.
Gore Factor: This movie is not for the squeamish; the blood is plentiful and the stab wounds are inventive, to say the least. Lots of internal organs are misplaced.
Scariness/Suspense: It's SCARY and it inspires extreme phobias of answering the telephone when you're alone in the house.
Anybody who can appreciate immature humor and slasher clichés
with a feminist bent should see this.
