Directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson

Starring Malin Akerman and Taissa Farmiga

Synopsis: After losing her mom in an auto accident, Max (Farmiga) goes to the showing of an old slasher film starring her late mother. Some shenanigans happen and she is teleported into the film along with some friends. They must follow the rules of slasher films to stay alive.

Review: Now, let’s address the elephant in the room. This was a huge send-up of the Friday the 13th films, obviously. I wondered throughout the movie how awesome it would have been if this was a Friday the 13th film. Yeah, be too much on the comedy, but still would be different. The film was fun, really fun. The film had a lot of emotional moments as well.

One major problem I have is with the humor. Yeah, old man Allen has a problem with the jokes. I honestly don’t understand comedy now. Why must every comedy have that awkward humor. You know, where one character says something and another character makes a joke about it? Another problem is the lighting and the film. Nothing on here looks like it’s from that era of horror.

A little in-depth on what I didn’t like. But, I did enjoy it. The soundtrack was awesome and so were the babes.
