This is one of my all time favorites! The dialogue is great, really funny and very realistic. “Brad” is the quintessential 80’s bad guy and it work’s great. Though a lot of the other frat guys are clearly 40 years old lol. Several characters are named after famous directors like Cameron, Romero, Cronenberg, and Hooper which is a great nod to the genre.

Pretty Creepy in parts with nice innovation and great effects. The movie followed rules and good “Freddy Claws”. No one was like “”hey that’s not happening” or stood in the way. We love the protagonists of the movie! Especially J.C. and his recorded message . It stands as one of the most heartbreaking scenes in a horror movie ever for us.   NOTC is alotta fun to watch, very engaging, realistic and highly  re-watchable. We really really want you to watch this movie, it is great . We both give it a 91/100!!!!

About DJVoorhees13

I don't believe in long winded reviews. I love Jason Voorhees. My favorite Friday is Friday 4: The Final Chapter (even though it isn’t), but I even like Friday 5: A New Beginning. I know the killer is not technically Jason, but you gotta love little Reckless and the blonde woman who keeps throwing him around. My guilty pleasures are Return of the Living Dead Parts 1 – 3. I know they’re not everyone’s favorites, but I can watch them over and over again with no reprieve. I also happen to think that Return of the Living Dead 3 characters Julie and Curt have one of the greatest love story ever told. When I’m not watching horror movies, I’m usually watching old TV shows or reading books/comics. Currently watching Star Trek: Voyager and reading anything by Dante Alighieri.
