I really can’t believe that I haven’t seen this movie. I also can’t believe that Drew Barrymore was only in the film for the first scene. I guess that’s fine though. It’s kind of like Psycho, and I am not very fond of Drew anyway. As the film started, I couldn’t tell you one thing that I knew about the film other than the white masked man. Basically, it’s kind of like When a Stranger Calls. A man calls a young teenage girl to play games and stalk and eventually murder. It’s quite interesting and not the worst film I’ve watched in this particular DFP series.
I thought the film itself seemed a little long and repetitive… but it’s a horror film and I truly believe that is a prerequisite when making one of these films. Overall, I feel like this movie is perfect for a slasher film on an October movie night.
I wasn’t too thrilled with the acting in this film. I did, however, enjoy the constant reference to other horror films. Like Jamie Lee Curtis, and how the virgin stays alive, etc etc. It was sort of a satiristic horror film and it was nice to watch.
I’m going to go with an “okay” rating for this film. It was good enough to watch once, but I wouldn’t add it to my collection or watch it again unless it’s streaming for free on Halloween night or something.
