      Lucius Gore ESplatter The film may generate a little bit more interest this year because "All the Boys Love Mandy Lane" seems to have taken a little inspiration from it. Rated: 1.5/4 Feb 26, 2009 Full Review Read all reviews

      Steve D Extra talent can't help this below average thriller. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/09/23 Full Review Steven V Entertaining but then the confusion at the end . Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/08/22 Full Review Audience Member A more low key, but entertaining slasher. It's a standard slasher formula, with an interesting twist and motive. The cast is quite likeable and really helps endear the whole thing. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/25/18 Full Review Audience Member The familiar cast can't do much with the shoddy material. Not one of the fun 80's slashers. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member A serial killer on the loose in a small town. This is not a popular title, but I find it an interesting thriller-mystery. I don't know the cast, but I liked them all decently. It is a murder mystery that takes place in a small town where a sheriff investigates the recent brutal knife attacks with all the possibility angle. All the victims were teenage boys, who are associated with the new girl in the town. Definitely you will begin to predict the suspect, that much the film evolves a bridge between you and the contents. It was a great story, I was stunned for its underrated status and for going unnoticed, but then it ended very cheaply. To me the conclusion ruined the rhythm, otherwise the rest of the film was amazing and worth a watch. I hope somebody would remake it with some changes, especially in the final act and its twist. Overall surely it was a fine film, a mix of the teen theme and the cop story, obviously excluding the bad ending. 6/10 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Sweet Sixteen was the little train that couldn't. Decent story, okay acting, and lots of interesting characters and subplots. But for some reason none of it gelled together well. It just felt like pieces cobbled together. It could have been great if some of the story points made more sense, or were maybe expanded on. All in all, it was decent and enjoyable.
