SUMMER OF ’84 on SHUDDER
MY RATING: Good times on a Budget ☠️
Summer of ’84 lives within the same archetype as The Burbs and Disturbia, but with a mix of Goonies and Monster Squad thrown in. There were scenes in this movie, that as an author I strive to bring my audience the same creepy, spooky joy. This movie is definitely fun, even when it goes dark.
The Premise is pretty simple – a group of teens believe their neighbor might be a serial killer. And as they attempt to collect evidence, they get themselves into trouble. It’s a fun movie with a low budget, and an enjoyable premise that although not original, still brings a lot of entertainment value.
