The movie to me comes off as an unintentional spoof of camp slasher movies of the 80s where all the kids are horny or high and the counselors are all dicks or stupid. Yet it takes a real quick turn into disturbing when the more serious deaths occur. The sequels really play on the spoof factor by even having kids dress up as Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees, while Angela kills them while dressed up as Leatherface. Even in the sequels the minor characters all start blending together until they get killed in horrifying fashion.
Yeah, what's insane about it is that the slasher part of it STARTS OUT with an attempted rape! That's where it starts! So there's no way to escalate things after that; the rest of the deaths occur to people that are just sort of mildly mean. It should have built up to the rape, not kick things off with it!
I also genuinely feel like this film was made by pedophiles. This isn't a movie with co-ed, freshmen in college teenagers. These are like, freshmen in high school teenagers; the oldest teen in this movie cannot be older than 17, which means that none of the characters would be legally allowed to watch this movie without a parent. And yet all these kids are wearing impossibly short shorts, feeling each other up constantly and cursing like sailors and banging disgustingly old people. I feel like this should have been a cautionary movie for teens, but since teens aren't even technically allowed to see it, it's basically just kiddie porn.
