BULLSEYE OR MISFIRE: The Town That Dreaded Sundown Reviews
By Dr. Know on October 17th, 2014
Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon shoots The Town that Dreaded Sundown brilliantly, getting a lot of shots from within the environment so we feel like we’re in there.
While the original was a more serious and thought provoking experience, this is a stylish and occasionally brutal true crime feature.
Gomez-Rejon’s classic-slasher-update finds a unique way to repurpose Charles B. Pierce’s original material, creating a sequel/remake hybrid that’s fun enough for some cheap date night scares.
