Since I’m all about honesty here, I can tell you that I didn’t really know jack shit about these movies. One time I was minding my own business and read about the original HERE but it didn’t persuade me to give it a watch…. then I saw the title pop up on iTunes a couple of months ago and it was released in 2014 so I figured it was a remake but for MONTHS it was only out there to buy for 19.99 and it DIDN’T come with a BJ. Then I read about the new one HERE and I thought – hey, I’m in on this! So finally the goddamned thing was out to rent and I went and rented it and – what can I say? I really liked it! Again, I don’t know shit about the original other than what I read in that one long post and what they reference in this movie but, this one was really good.
I mean this thing starts off with a little corpse desecration… who saw that coming??? Balls, I say!! Balls!! Plus – the lead is a total cutie:
There’s sex, blood and rock n roll. The villain is a total badass. I thought the story was clever and the way they incorporated the original into it was pretty smart. It’s always going to be very, very difficult to make a “new” slasher movie – and we all know that so, if you’re going to make a slasher flick it’s going to have to be all about the presentation. This looks good, sounds good, has practical effects and wasn’t stupid. I don’t have any complaints here.
And, for real, there’s none of this in it:
I would totally watch this again. I think some folks might think the ending is a little dodgy but it didn’t bother me at all. Also – because I’m feeling spry, here’s a couple of things I found on the internet when searching “the town that dreaded sundown remake movie”:
