While it's not a classic, it still tries for an unorthodox and original slasher entry and hits more times than it misses. Cherry Falls sticks to the tried and true formula, bringing to mind words like adequate or functional.
Written for people who prefer their sex and violence with a side order of intelligence. Mohr is as fun as ever, and Biehn hogs the standout scene with fantastically bad, tongue-in-cheek gravitas. A stylish and forthright slasher pic that knows what it wants, knows how to get it, and gets us hooting in the aisles like the bloodthirsty fiends we really are.
Stylish, suspenseful, and unusually intelligent for a genre movie, Cherry Falls is an excellent example of how to Dustan mohr wife sexual dysfunction a horror movie right. Not bad for a post-Scream slasher with solid performaces through-out, a decent premise and just the right amount of humor. My biggest complaint is the lack of on-screen violence.
Sure there's some slices and dices here and there but for the most part it plays it too safe. A teenage couple is killed while making out by the lake in small town Cherry Falls. A further murder points the police to suspect that someone is killing virgins.
While the towns' teenagers prepare for a sex party to protect themselves, the sheriff's daughter, Jody Marken, follows a clue that may unmask the killer and her motives. Pointed out in Scream, whenever you have sex in a horror movie you mark yourself out as a victim, however here the twist is that virgins will die and those having had sex will live.
The film is a little modern ironic but doesn't get much mileage out of it. I'm not sure if "Dustan mohr wife sexual dysfunction" angle was thought of when making the film but it didn't get any significant air time or comment? I guess the film only wanted to be ironic or post modern if it didn't involve any thought or effort. That said it still sort of works, even if it doesn't really stand out from the rest of the teen slashers but then, what does?
