A fantastical little horror film that only grows more charming with age. I'm not sure it was really an influence for the Scream series, as it's much more homage-y than satirical and doesn't seek to comment on genre tropes so much as warmly embrace them. It's all quite silly, but as the title
suggests, it's an entertaining diversion with style to spare despite its troubled production history.
Took me by surprise. A bit dull at the end but overall very good. Think Nightmare On Elm Street vs Phantom of the Opera in the early 90s. Some nice stylish shots, creative settings and very interesting use of cinema itself. Not bad at all.
