I was completely obsessed with this movie when it first came out. The director of From Dusk Till Dawn teams up with the writer of Scream and an all star cast. What more could you want? It’s teen horror funsies of the late 90s.
What I really enjoyed about the movie originally was the mystery, the pacing, witty dialogue, and the bad assitudes of the main characters. What I don’t like after watching this time is how the story is a total ripoff of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but tries to get away with it by being self aware and trendy. Yes, it’s a fresh take on the source material, but there are a lot of dumb parts that undermine the parts that aren’t so bad. By the end, you feel like it’s any other horror movie you’ve seen.
There are plenty of good scares and some gory moments. The dialogue is mostly pretty good, but there are some cringe parts where it feels like an old dude trying to write for high school kids.
Removing a taco for the Creed song.
