It was so aggressively stupid.
Ah, it was just a "leave your brain at the door" slasher flick. There are plenty worse, although it pales next to the original.
They shouldn't have tried the "twist," though. It created too many plot holes.
Nothing wrong with "leave your brain at the door" slashers, I enjoyed the Scream movies, but this wasn't even exciting. It was also fairly obvious who the killer was far too early on.
I went in with low expectations and literally left the theater in a hurry, cap pulled low because I was so embarrassed
Well, if you count the Scream
films as "brain at the door" slashers, I'm not surprised you were disappointed.
To each his own, though. It was pretty much what I expected from it, though there could have been more 3D gags. It was also fun to see Tom Atkins hamming it up.
The "twist" at the end could have gone either way, and while the way they went is more daring than the alternative, I don't think it was really the best way to go. (I think that's vague enough to avoid spoiler code.)
All that said, there's not much point to getting it on DVD without the DVD; not since the original has a spiffy new special edition
