Damnit, what was John Ottman thinking when he made this film? Did he actually believe this would be a good movie? This is nothing but your stereotypical slasher film, where another masked killer is off killing college students. I'm tired of these kinds of films. It's the same thing all the time, either with high school students or college students. Hollywood needs to come up with some original stuff for a change.
Anyway back to the movie. It starts off on a set of a film in the making and the cast gets introduced into the picture. The killing really doesn't start 'till about 15 or so minutes into the film. The plot itself is so stupid because the only reason they can explain why the person is killing people off is because of some Hitchcock award. What the fuck? It's not like if I don't win some award that I'm gonna start killing people off.
Another thing that kinda makes no sense is that there's only one cop in the whole college campus. I mean are we to believe that this is some super cop that needs no partner? I would think that after the first two deaths or so that they'd get enough sense to bring in another officer, but nooooooo. There are so many plot holes, so little time to bash them. Also, what the hell's with all these stupid masks that have been in these slasher films recently?
First we get a ghostface, then an oversized raincoat, then a giant snow jacket, and then there's this fencing mask. I'm sure there's more, but that's all I can think of right now. I mean if a killer really wanted to conceal his identity then he could just get the hell outta the city, but no he chooses to hang around until someone busts his ass. I'd like to see one slasher where the guy wears some sort of wicked face paint instead of a stupid jacket or a whack mask.
Well anyway, the only thing really bad about this film is what’s the most important of all, and that's the plot. It was just too overdone and predictable. There weren't even any good scares. I wouldn't be surprised if they made another sequel to this though. Maybe this time the killer will be someone's half brother or great uncle or maybe even the neighborhood kid who constantly stares out the window, *rolls eyes*.
Your stereotypical slasher film, nothing new. Don't rent this unless you're into watching the same shit over and over again.
