Life changing!
Verified purchase
Wes Craven provides a very solid and informative documentary here. You will learn really important factors in regards to home safety, trauma management, garage health and safety, and how to escape from intruders. On another plus side, there is a deviation from the norm, an exploratory angle into the history of the horror genre. I found this to be surprising but welcomed. It is refreshing to see documentarians providing a thematic layer to their work. However, there are some criticisms. The actors were not convincing, I assume this because they were obviously the very people who went through the original experience. This form of gestalt therapy was no doubt incredibly therapeutic for those involved. It is a brave foray into health and safety documentaries and one i hope develops continually.

Slick 90's slasher spoof
Verified purchase
This is a definitely tongue in cheek splatterama spoof on many of those slasher films we've all seen. Many of the horror cliches are in here, and it's very classily done. Famous faces are popping out at you as well, from the main stars to my fave, Henry Winkler as college Principal. A great film to sit back, park your brain in neutral, and just enjoy. Just make sure you've locked the door...

Scream fans!!! Assemble!!!
Verified purchase
Movie was worth the price. After seeing the 2022 Scream movie. I felt the urge to watch all the Scream movies again from the start.
I wasn't disappointed I bought that I bought 1, 2 and 3. 4 was already available on a competitor streaming service.
I now remember why I enjoyed this slasher movie! Especially the 2nd one! Love Randy's scene in the 2nd movie tbf.
Buy it, watch it and enjoy it!

Did Not Play Smoothly
Verified purchase
If I could request a refund I would as this film would not play properly, with it juddering and out of synch. Tried other streaming apps that we have to see if it was our connection but they were playing fine. Had to source it from elsewhere and pay again. Poor service from Amazon Prime in this instance.

Slasher movie 101
Verified purchase
Watched this with our 2 teenage daughters at Halloween, given the 18 rating we were ready to switch off at any moment but they really enjoyed it, it's a great introduction into slasher\horror films, bit puzzled by the 18 rating though as it wasn't any worse than most of the 15 rated films out there.

I remember watching this as a teen when it was released and thought it was great, it still is great! This film was so different to many others at the time and has stood the test of time! Excellent!

1st in the Franchise
Verified purchase
A gory introduction to what becomes an exciting series of movies, though the 2nd movie a bit disappointing. Fortunately, they picked up again after that one. Worth a watch.
