I wish they had done more with the backstory of the police cover-up, but overall it was quite satisfying. I give it a (severed) thumbs up.
Ok, I totally loved Freddy Versus Jason. It was a straight-up slasher movie: lots of squibs, gratuitous shower scenes, wandering off into the dark alone, sex equals death, etc., and I was struck by how much it seemed like it was made in the 80s. There was very little of the self-awareness that's been present in every monster movie made after Craven got all pomo with New Nightmare / Scream. (Which were both fantasic movies at the time, but then the cliché set in.)
