to quote the new york times review: slasher movies demand a certain willingness to be provocative, or even tasteless.
that is why something like sleepaway camp will linger, and why they/them probably won’t last five years in the larger cultural memory. a film that feels devastatingly of-it’s-era, like most mainstream “social horrors” it teases ideas and themes that it is too toothless to actually engage with. liberals are seriously not to be trusted with trans horror if this and assassination nation are the best they have to offer. does not offend, does not take risks, and so it does not impact.
