(This is a review of the 1974 version not the 2006 one.)
Note: This film is available on Netlfix at the time of this review.
The story follows a group of sorority sisters who are receiving threatening phone calls, while being stalked and murdered during the holiday season by a deranged murderer.
The shaky camera start doesn’t inspire me with confidence, but after that it’s a well made film.
There aren’t many obvious cliche’s and the cast are great, which already makes it better than many horror’s I’ve seen.
Unfortunately, there’s barely any actual story. There’s an intriguing mystery surrounding the killer that never gets solved which sucks! It leaves you with many questions.
There’s too much drama and too little horror. It failed at building tension and there was too many lulls. This might be a good film for those who are easily frightened and want to dip their toe into horror.
A surprisingly well made, but not very tense filled film.
To sum up, leaves with questions, cool cast, too many dull parts
Was it worth the watch? No
Would I re-watch? No
