Remake of the old 70's slasher-esque movie with modern SCREAM twists. The original flick was about a white hooded killer that stalked teens doing the dirty deed at Lover's Lane, Zodiac style. Based on a true story in a town situated partly in Arkansas and Texas, the killer never was caught and in this quasi-meta-remake/sequel, well, the killer returns 65 years later to torture the town and Nu Generation teens once again. There's really nothing NEW in this slasher movie, but sultrylead actress Addison Timlin is easy on the eyes as she's stalked by the killer, even though she kind of mumbles her lines unintelligibly throughout. (Is she from those weird mumblecore movies I keep reading about? Still, she's really HAWT!) I liked the way the original film was used in the story (as the movie it really is based on real events) and flashback scenes of it are used cleverly. The stalk and slash scenes are intense but not overly gory and in the uncut edition, there's a nice bit of sex and nudity (shapely blond showing little titties and ass) in a raunchy hotel room rendezvous that turns into a massacre. Again, in terms tone and style, this movie borrows heavily from the original film and more especially from SCREAM and SCREAM 4, so if you like those "meta-aware" style horror movies, you'll probably dig this flick. I predicted 50% of the ending when the killer was revealed, the other half comes waaaaaay out of left field and feels rather implausible.There was really no way to guess something as far out as it is. All in all, THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN is one of the better mid-range slash flicks to come down the pike, respectful of the original film and entertaining as it is. You can do a lot worse!
