good horror flick
30 July 2007 | by loudglbcSee all my reviews

Watched it last night, with pretty much no great expectations of it. Maybe a scare or too, but I really was expecting poor acting. Yet, to my surprise the movie holds its own very nicely. Good acting by all, the girls were cute, with some decent nudity as well, which always adds a little to a good horror flick. The best thing about this movie was its ability to use Paranoia. Not necessarily the Hitchcock form, but still for a big budget horror movie, its vibe and atmosphere is very solid. I found myself being a little scared, for no apparent reason, which is a good thing for a horror/slasher to do. overall, good movie, good young acting, great scares, and just a cool movie to chill and watch with some friends. check it out.
