Founders Day (2023) Popcorn Frights 2023

As a small town heads toward a mayoral election, someone is going on a killing spree.

Nominal slasher, the truth is the film is trying to do more than just be a collection of kills. Because the film is twisty, I'm not going to really discuss what happens, I don't want to spoil it.  I will say that for the most part the film entertains. I'm not sure that the film pulls it all together but I like that this isn't the road that's well traveled.

That  the film works is due to the cast who don't walk through the proceedings. That may not sound like much, but when you are like me and are subjected to lots of B films where the casts phone it in, it's nice to have actors who actually care. 

I also love that the film doesn't look like other similar films. Because the film isn't following the typical tropes the filmmakers smartly don't go down the usual paths. We aren't given typical visual clues so it all seems fresh.

I had a good time.

Worth a look.
