Director: John Hyams
Year Released: 2022
During the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, Parker (Gideon Adlon) goes with her bestie Miri (Bethlehem Million) to stay at her family's lake house, but Parker's "friend-with-benefits" DJ (Dylan Sprayberry) unexpectedly shows up ... and then so does someone dressed in black with a Ka-Bar. After experiencing success working in television (with Dawson's Creek and The Vampire Diaries) and with Wes Craven (on the Scream franchise), co-screenwriter Kevin Williamson seems to only want to write one kind of movie: a slasher that wants to trick you into thinking it's clever (yet everyone keeps making baffling mistakes). I get wanting to take the opportunity to address the behavior of some individuals when it came to the mask mandates and lockdowns, but here it's almost like he's mocking people who were (understandably) cautious around the whole thing. Don't blame kids for being reckless ... it's what they do best.
