CUB doesn’t play as a collection of clichés, but a love letter to the genre from a filmmaker who grew up wearing out Friday the 13th and Sleepaway Camp tapes and wanted to see if he could “make one like they used to”. Well, he did. CUB doesn’t break new ground, but it sure delivers a perfectly solid gut punch from a new director. (Phil Brown, Fangoria)
