So straight up, Jamie Lee Curtis looks way too freaking old to be in high school. She was about 22 when the movie was released, but she looked almost 30. It took me out of it a little since she looked like a peer to the people playing her parents rather than their child.
The plot was a little shaky too, I didn't really understand where they were trying to go with the leads they dropped, because looking back when the killer is revealed it just doesn't quite make sense. It was a little weak is all.
I enjoyed watching it, but following up the day after Sleepaway Camp didn't help it feel better.
