As soon as I saw King Bach was 'acting' in this, I immediately thought this would be trash. However, it actually turned out to be a very enjoyable, albeit predictable and quite cheesy, horror comedy. Certainly not as bad as you would expect from a Netflix original movie.
Nothing irks me more than conspicuous yet unmotivated slo-mo/music drops/camera movements, and McG uses all of these in abundance. Entertaining enough, though (again) conspicuously sophomoric in a way that grates. The climax makes little sense and the coming-of-age story is half-baked. Though I would have gladly watched shirtless Robbie Amell torment pre-teens for the entire run time, the rest was chaff.
McG cashing in on the 80's horror revival a little too late to be cool. And boy, he is trying to be cool, with his editing especially. There is enough to like in the performances, especially Amell, and the genre tropes satify though, so its worth your 80 minutes.
