Remember how I said I hoped the cast of this one could hold a candle to the cast of the original? Of course you do; that was yesterday.
Anyway, that was before I knew Mary Elizabeth Winstead was in this one! So of course I love the cast — especially since Andrea Martin, who played Phyl in the original, was in it.
I also didn’t hate the movie! It was a great homage to the original that still put its own spin on it. It’s definitely not as subtle as the original. The deaths are many and bloody in this one.
Overall, it’s a fun remake of a fun Christmas horror movie, and if you’re into teen slasher films from the late 2000s you’ll probably like this one just fine.
