Great B movie type horror! It's exactly what it says it's going to be: cheesy horror with half-naked girls. This is one of the best horror movies I've seen in awhile. It isn't scary, but it is a lot of fun.

This clever little slasher film stays true to the formula of the Early 80's 'killer-on-the-loose' films. Which means lots of blood, nudity,beer, and weed. I enjoyed this one alot as it reminded me of 'My Bloody Valentine' but with a sense of humor!

A Lot Better Than The First 5 Minutes Might Have You Thinkin

"Not terribly original, quite predictable much of the time, and with various other little shortcomings popping up here and there, "Shredder" probably shouldn't be half as enjoyable as it is, but somehow it manages to be one of the better non-series 'slasher' type horror movies out there. Admittedly, it doesn't approach the level of the best chapters in the big ongoing series ("Friday The 13th", "Nightmare On Elm Street", "Halloween", etc.) but on the other hand it's actually Better than a number of the weaker entries in the big series. Quite a bit better, in fact.
Centering on a group of teens/early twenties characters heading up to an abandoned ski/snowboard camp for a weekend of fun who instead end up being preyed upon by a masked assailant, it misses a couple of opportunities for some more innovative (and potentially awesome) pursuit-type scenes but makes up for it elsewhere. Does manage some actual suspense more than once, and certainly manages to set itself up as a tremendously sexy movie more than once. The characters are, for the most part, kind of blooming idiots, but they're Likable blooming idiots, the kind of characters comedies featuring casts this age try for but (in my opinion) usually fall short of. Some good performances in here too.
It's kind of a hard movie to rate. If going on a ten-point scale, I could take the cynical approach and count up all the flaws and unevenness of the movie and argue it down to a six or so in spite of how well it turned it out, but who wants to be cynical all the time? Part of me keeps thinking of the best parts and arguing for a nine or at least 8.5 On a five-star scale, I think a four is appropriate. I don't know why, but a lot of what would sound like 'filler' scenes on paper just clicked and came off really good, and help the show to be worthy of a good high rating.
A couple of random thoughts: I don't always watch the 'deleted' scenes on a disc (especially on a movie that's pretty much perfect the way it is, out of fear of diluting it) but there was a bit of leeway on "Shredder" so I checked them out and they actually added to the movie - entertaining 'extended' scenes from the movie with some entertaining, seemingly ad-libbed, lines. In the main movie scene itself, the skilift scene is a highlight, a quirky little classic, but gets one thinking "why oh why don't more movies use the 'multi-camera angles option" they said they were going to when DVD was coming out, and why couldn't this have been one of them?' (still immensely cool though).
Bottom line: don't expect it to terrify you out of your wits, but don't pass it up because of that. There's a sea of movies along these general lines within its particular subgenre of horror, and a lot of them are good, but "Shredder" is, in spite of some flaws, several notches above the average. Recommended."

"MGM put out this pretty good horror movie. The plot should have been a little deeper. The acting was ok. Average kill scenes. Pick up if My Bloody Valentine is out."
Death to snowboarders!
