The Town That Dreaded SundownA masked maniac terrorizes the same small community where a murderer known as the Phantom Killer struck decades earlier. Is it a copycat or something even more sinister? A lonely high school girl, with dark secrets of her own, may be the key to catching him.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "The Town That Dreaded Sundown"Time OutApril 13, 2015
A clever concept and stylish execution (in both senses) aren't quite enough to make this achingly meta remake/reboot/sequel stand out from the slasher pack.VarietyOctober 16, 2014
The 'American Horror Story' team remakes the cult 1976 slasher with gimmicky, mostly unscary results.The Film StageMarch 02, 2016
While its tone wildly varies, when it comes to the glut of horror remakes, it's a slight step ahead of the standard batch.ScotsmanApril 20, 2015
Knowledge of the first film probably helps, but it's a nifty little genre experiment nonetheless.Observer (UK)April 19, 2015
With its small-town atmospherics, a juicy supporting cast of character players, plus Addison Timlin's personable, plucky "final girl", this Town is pulled off with polished, enjoyable brashness ...Independent (UK)April 16, 2015
This is an exercise in nostalgia as much as bloodletting. The filmmakers are paying their very own tribute to teen-horror pics of the 1970s.Times (UK)April 16, 2015
Not a straight remake of the 1976 cult horror movie, The Town That Dreaded Sundown is more a self-referential homage that takes the original film's legacy and embellishes it.Radio TimesApril 16, 2015
A straightforward, slickly edited psycho-killer flick with moments of razor-sharp tension and a welcome appearance from Alien star Veronica Cartwright as Timlin's granny.Sky MoviesApril 16, 2015
Those who like their shivers served up with a spattering of grey matter should leave with a sunny disposition.GuardianApril 16, 2015
It's an odd, if somewhat original, way of playing with sequel conventions: the plot exists in a reality where the original film also exists. But outside of knowing winks, this is cookie cutter carnage.Little White LiesApril 16, 2015
Clever enough, but forgets to be exciting.Daily Telegraph (UK)April 16, 2015
A film that bounds towards the cult appeal of those self-reflexive horror classics, but agonisingly doesn't quite stick the landing.
