This is obviously a classic, a pinnacle of the slasher genre. Some of this movie is really fucking funny, some of the best 80s slashers are. The Friday music is iconic and it has likable people, a good motive, nice innovation and it followed rules. It has a great script, direction and cast. Highly re-watchable. Fantastic if not quintessential revenge story.
There is one really offensive cop near the beginning lol. God sent crazy Ralph, sure why not, but why does he stand alone in small dark rooms? The killer sneaks up on everyone except the last girl, why?? Betsy isn’t exactly good at scrapping directly so why fix what ain’t broken. It has the classic “This isn’t funny anymore” line and a girl does a pretty good Katharine Hepburn impression. Great Ending!
Overall we both loved it, it is a classic that spawned 11 other movies and counting. Tara gave it an 89/100 and I gave it a 94/100
Suggested drinking game is :Every time someone dies, you hear the kill kill mama music and when someone gets naked! enjoy!!
