"Like all game changers within the horror genre, it was an independent success, a low-budget champion that flourished without the patronage of a big studio."
Apparently Psycho wasn't a studio film? Frankenstein was low budget? Jaws lacked big studio patronage?
There's nothing wrong in this quote changing "all" to "most" wouldn't have fixed.
It's come to this though, eh? Critical appreciation of Saw. If I stay with the university long enough, I'll be receiving appraisals and course materials for the study of Michael Bay's Transformers.
