What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Like most, I started the pilot skeptic at best. Horror's not really my thing, movie to tv - ugg, an mtv show. However, despite having a litany of apprehensions, I cannot wait to watch the next episode. This pilot is solid, and I want more.

The thing I like the most about this show is it's self awareness. Something which hearkens to the movie. It's kind of refreshing. The show is keenly aware of the tropes and situations, and plays with that knowledge and with you the viewer.

In spite of all the impossibly pretty 20-somethings pretending to be 16/17, I found myself on the edge of my seat. Even though I am not the one for slashers - I haven't even seen Halloween, Friday the 13th, Texas Chainsaw or even Saw - I found the gore palatable. It's on the same level as walking dead.

Just watch it. I know I will.
