When we tend to talk about women in horror, it’s very easy to conjure up the age-old trope and imagery of the female slasher victim, because of their promiscuity and body positivity.

Like the tagline, you shouldn’t take this film seriously. If you’re a horror fan who has never seen this sequel before, I would recommend it. There’s plenty of humour where you don’t expect it, great fight scenes, and it’s bonkers in a way only an independent film can be.
