Some movies are awesome, some entertain, precious few touch deep. Then there are the less good examples which might have a run of the mill story line, but therefore at least technically done perfect and absorb their shortfalls with optical gimmicks, brilliant effects or talented actors. And at the end there are the real rotten flicks where you never know if you should laugh or cry…and that’s about the bulk of movies I’ve seen in recent years...

This typical teenie horror flick is nothing from all of this…it’s average from the beginning ‘til the end. Nothing outstanding, nothing is good but not really bad though. Only adjectives like trivial, boring or irrelevant cross my mind. Lack of interest comes up: a remake of a movie which already belongs to the mediocrities in the original version, fashioned up and brought to present time. There are no outstanding effects and the actors – you got it – average. The screenplay a kit of precisely defined components (maniac escapes from asylum, hunting a girl and by the way kills careless teens crossing his way), the direction doesn’t fail completely.

So what…a typical American scary kid flick where barely the 12 year old ones get the thrill. Exactly for this target group this film was produced: for high school kids just reaching puberty. For this reason the movie was shown in US theatres rated PG-13 (bombs, even Americans do not watch every snot) and for DVD an unrated version was quickly released to address perhaps the older horror buffs. Let the matter rest, guys because the movie isn’t even rough in this version. Some additional takes – a little bit of blood -, alternative frame material here and there…here too: BOARING.

For comparison:

the unrated version, both on DVD
