Upon hearing the news of Mr. Craven, I rewatched this having not seen it for many years. I did it with a bit of trepidation caused by the multitude of meta movies that have come out since its initial release. I found in the past that too many copies can lessen the original. I’m happy to say that it has held up. What rang true for horror movies then, still holds true today and so many films are still following the cliches, but not ironically. The gore is strong as ever and some of the jokes and references are a little dated, but they are dated for my generation so they still work.
