I know which death you mean and I completely agree. I know we’ve had lots of deaths in horror that the audience are meant to be annoyed by, but it just seemed overly cruel and didn’t fit with the tone of the rest of the film.I’m only 25 minutes in, but the main girl seems horrible. Obviously I’m going to keep watching it, but I’m definitely not feeling it so far.
Edit:Overall it was fine, but none of the characters were that likeable and the film kind of relied upon you caring about Sam and Deena but I thought Sam was incredibly boring. One death in particular felt quite mean near the end.
To answer this, yes, they shot these in early 2019 with Fox intending to release them throughout 2020, but the Disney merger & COVID lead to delays and the sale to Netflix.Well I enjoyed it a ton! It wasn't particularly scary at all, but the nostalgia was a blast, the soundtrack was perfect, and I had a good ass time.
I am imagining an alternate universe where basically the entire cast of Bring It On starred in this movie. Just imagine: Eliza Dushku as Deena, Kirsten Dunst as Sam, Gabrielle Union as Kate, Jesse Bradford as Simon - a serve most pleasing to me.
Also, was this filmed like -- years ago? Maya Hawke looks younger than she did on Stranger Things Season 3, which aired ages ago.
They absolutely picked the wrong final girl/characters to focus on though. Kate (and Simon, who should have spent the entire film in his underwear) were far more interesting characters than Deena and Sam. I did enjoy Kate's death because it was iconic-ish, even if it was annoying that they died at all. I was surprisingly rooting for all these characters because they generally weren't being dumb the whole time, which was a refreshing change of pace in a horror movie.
Looking forward to part II and III.
