Anas Itani’s review published on Letterboxd:
I'm pretty sure nobody loves slasher movies as much as Wes Craven does. The movie's self-awareness that it's a horror flick, how silly and cliched the horror genre had become at that point, and Craven's brilliant ability to turn that into an original movie is the highlight point for me. Nothing much to say other than that I've loved every second of it. Every homage, every joke, every oneliner, it all worked for me. I hope the second one maintains the same charm.
