Alexandra Aja’s remake of the 1978 cult classic is superior even to its source material: Aja tackles the B-movie concept of the original with demented glee and a knowing wink, heaping tons of naked flesh and debauchery on his audience before unleashing his ultra-ferocious titular monsters like nothing could be more fun. The gore and the nudity are completely, enthusiastically over-the-top and the movie definitely isn’t for those with weak stomachs or the easily offended, but those who like their entertainment with buckets of blood will find plenty to enjoy here. The cast is clearly having the time of their lives, in particular veterans Elisabeth Shue, Adam Scott, Ving Rhames and Jerry O’Connell, with nobody taking things too seriously.
Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
