Alright, let me start of by saying this is a really fantastic movie. I never realized how much of a buried treasure it was until I saw it a second and third time. It has a great, twisting plot that mocks the slasher era of films, yet it retains its originality. The humor in this movie is characterized by crudeness, subtlety, and satirical elements.
People say it's a spoof, they're wrong. It's a satirical look at two different genres of movie, horror and those spring break romp movies. And it works. A lot of the humour is subtle, but then a lot of it is really obvious, blatant humour, which makes it work so well. And I've read people compare it with Scary movie. Trust me, Scary Movie isn't even in the same league as this movie.
I guess it all depends on your expectations, though. Like I said, I've seen it a few times, but if you have low to medium expectations, it will surpass them.
