This delightfully clever film is a by the numbers slasher film that turns out to be so much smarter than every other slasher film (I would say smarter even than “Scream” but I have to give that film credit for planting the seeds that would become this one).  This movie takes self-referential and tongue-in-cheek to a new level.  It manages to deconstruct the horror genre in a way I have never seen before, allowing every scene to be absurdly funny and is able to (quite ingeniously) tie every single horror film ever made into an over-arching narrative; they are really all part of the same story, we just never knew it.  Brilliant.
