Review of The Town that Dreaded Sundown
by Jeremy Thomas
Posted on June 7th, 2021
Neutral 6
Overall Rating
it's rare that a film gets a sequel forty years after its release. it's rarer still that the sequel is actually somewhat better than the original. the original town that dreaded sundown was an otherwise-solid low-budget '70s horror thriller hampered by its very bad attempts at humor. the sequel (incorrectly referred to by many as a remake or reboot) avoids the goofy humor in favor of a meta approach that works for the most part. there are times that the film seems to be a feature-length advertisement for its predecessor, but those aren't so common that it massively detracts. the acting is perfectly fine for a horror film across the board. addison timlin is an affable lead while gary cole and anthony anderson are good if underused as police trying to track down a killer who is keeping the spirit of the first film alive. veronica cartwright, denis o'hare and joshua leonard are good in supporting roles; they don't stand out but they straddle the line nicely between overacting and sincerity. the conceit of the film as a fictional sequel to a fictional retelling (itself acknowledged as a film within this one) of real-world events is clever enough to support the film, although the big reveal is anti-climactic and that robs the film of any sense of excitement. ultimately this is a perfectly serviceable low-rent slasher film; nothing more and nothing less.
