I will not hear these slights against the divine Natalie Simon. The brooding viewer's final girl.
I Still Know... has everything I need in a slasher. Not one but TWO Final Girls. A POC not only surviving but thriving and upstaging the basic ass white leads. A current A List star in a terrible role that he’s probably now ashamed of. Great soundtrack. Exotic location. Fantastic chase scene. Multiple panes of glass broken. Unnecessarily complicated exposition. The Vocal Bible.
How do I deal indeed?
Rufus Humphrey as a terrible, cute and laughably implausible antagonist? We love to see it.
Everything you said is tea, but I’m struggling to think who this could be?
I have watched Life and it felt like a hodge podge of other space horror movies and it felt so stupid at times? Idk, was not really into it.
Probably generous calling him A-List in 2020, but Jack Black's uncredited, problematic ass.
It blows my mind that Oscar winners Renée Zellweger and Matthew McConaughey both starred in Texas Chainsaw Massacre The Next Generation
I find Matthew McConaughey insanely attractive despite his annoying overacting in that movie.

Matthew Settle is so fine in ISKWYDLS, especially once he's wet and letting the psycho faces really go.
Urban Legend 2 is so weird. The tone, the setting, the cast, the kills - it's just so odd. Eva Mendes was criminally underused and Caufield was dreadfully overused.
I relish the opportunity to diss Jessica Cauffiel’s performances in UL2 and Valentine at every opportunity. It’s like she has absolutely no idea what kind of movies she was in.
I do stan a gay director serving ART though.
Spoiler: NSFW From Home
Dread to think what else they had for it, considering it’s a legitimately amazing slasher kill scene, and really the only one that’s a well known Urban Legend in the whole thing.
Hang on....the bathtub kidney extraction/window beheading isn’t in the first movie? Why was it ingrained in my head as an early kill in UL1? Is it because it’s far superior to the rest of the second movie?
It’s an outstanding few minutes of slasher cinema... most films would struggle to live up to it.
Don't forget Oscar nominee John Hawkes for his role as Ray's friend who gets murdered during the mannequin on the road scene!
Charlize Theron in 'Children Of The Corn III'
But that hospital scene with THAT character cameo in UL2 is iconic.
Urban Legends 2 is fine, but it feels more like a direct-to-DVD sequel than a proper big screen release. So the fact that it apparently topped the box office (?!?) is somewhat mindblowing.
I don't know more iconic sisters.
If someone disagrees
Ugh, Sarah Michelle Gellar in IKWYDLS is iconic.
Separate names with a comma.
