It's not nearly as bad as people are making it sound. In fact, I thought it was rather enjoyable, if you understand what you're getting into. And let's be honest, you're smart enough to know what kind of movie this is ahead of time.
Honestly would you expect a good movie here? No. You came for a slasher, cheezy as hell, you get it. The characters were horrible although kind of unique and also with a little bit of development. but over all I*ll give this movie
a pizza slice/10
I certainly understand the amount of negative reviews and overall attitude of disdain for this film.
Most Likely to Die really is a bad movie.
The plot is contrived and silly, replete with all of the slasher cliches.
The cinematography is adequate at best, the lighting is horrible.
The acting ranges from serviceable to downright laughable (don't get me started on Perez Hilton).
So why, despite all of these drawbacks, did I enjoy this film?
One word: nostalgia.
Most Likely to Die is a hardcore throwback to the cheesy slasher flicks of the 80's. Every single aspect of this film, other than the outfits and music, screams 80's slasher.
Even the plot is a direct reference to, if not a ripoff of, the 1986 horror film Slaughter High (also known as April Fool's Day).
Most Likely to Die is a direct descendant of these legendary films, much more so than most modern slashers that also recycle the usual tropes. It's really sort of a guilty pleasure.
If you're looking for anything other than a corny throwback, throw this one right out the window.
