    Looks fun if it's an R. Not if it's PG-13.

    I'm not sure if it's been officially rated yet, but the director has said that he made it as an R-rated movie. He also said it's extremely bloody.

    Rated R for strong bloody horror violence, sexual content, and language throughout.

    I had to stop the trailer because it was showing the whole movie, but it looks fun enough for me.

    Finally watching the trailer and now I'm really looking forward to this. Seems like a real fun time. I loved Happy Death Day and didn't realize the same guy was directing this one too, so that's good news.

    I liked how they used Die Antwoord's I Fink You Freeky in the trailer too lol.

    Caught this on Friday the 13th at the theater...... Had a lot of fun. Vince Vaughn was awesome as usual. It was exactly what I was expecting and I'm glad I caught on the big screen. Pretty cool that the majority of the movie takes place on Friday the 13th.....

    A friend of mine saw it and said it was great and really earned the R rating. Theaters in LA are still closed so I'll have to see it on demand or wait for a Bluray release.

    Slashers are my favorites anyway, so this was already targeted at me, but I head over heels loved this movie. It completely delivered in both genres it was tackling: slasher and body-swap. This is also the rare Blumhouse movie that doesn't skimp on the kills. Vaughn is having a lot of fun with the role, and the supporting characters are all great. If I had a quibble with the movie, it's that maybe the lead actress wasn't quite up to what the role demanded of her, but that's just me being nitpicky. This movie just had me grinning from ear-to-ear and loving every minute of it. Highly recommended.

    I enjoyed it, but didn't love it. Kills were great though. The bandsaw gag wow! Vaughan was great, For me the humor was off.
