There aren't a lot of Thanksgiving-themed movies out there but this is one of the best.
Had a good time.
Had a good story line.
I am an old lady who usually doesn't do thrillers but I was blown away with the creativity and originality.
I definitely wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was! It is quite an Eli Roth movie with the choice of gore and violence included, and the kills are just so creative and fun in a way I haven't seen in more recent slashers. Definitely some good commentary about the greed of the holidays, especially Black Friday and how Thanksgiving almost feels like a time to make up for the blatant greed and capitalism by spending time with family and being grateful. The villain is ICONIC and has such a fun persona when in their costume and the big scene towards the end at the dinner table WAS CRAZY. I will say the ending gets a little muddled because it feels like there are just too many twists being thrown at you at once where it doesn't really need it. And I think I would have liked a more gruesome finality, especially for such a clever villain. Altogether its a bloody riot with such cheesy lines sometimes but the characters give it their all and I can appreciate that.
Good acting, top notch special effects and an excellent cast, though I correctly figured out who the killer was by the end of the store riot scenes (within 15 minutes of the movie). It ruins the viewing experience to know who the killer is too soon in a slasher horror movie.
Slasher movie perfection! I had a great time.
Ha Ha funny
