And before anyone freaks out about the "token black" thing, it's not that African Americans shouldn't be in slashers, it's just that this waste continues the prevailing trend of throwing a token example in with the group of friends that doesn't do anything than add to the body count.

It's tough to say how a person will react. It's not unwatchable, just so freakin' much of what we've already seen before done better elsewhere that it seems like a waste of 90 minutes. Although even as something completely unoriginal, it's still not very entertaining. I seriously couldn't stand all the flashy editing. It's like instead of really honing the story, scares, and the characters; it uses all this bullshit sizzle cutting to try and cover up how cheap and boring everything is.
