I just love this movie

This movie captivated me, I was still a teenager when this came out and the first time I watched it, I enjoyed it so much. It is a proper thriller movie, I do not understand why it is listed as horror, maybe because of the death toll in, however it is much more a thriller than it is a horror movie. It could possibly be one of the reasons people do not like this movie, this is not a slasher film, the story has a great toll to play on the outcomes of those in the movie. They managed, at least for me (a person who does not tend to overthink anything when watching movies, and just tends to let the plot unravel), the climax and the "reveal" was a bit of a surprise for me, watching it now, I find foreshadowing to lead you to the "reveal", which is quite rare to see in most movies now. Note there is death in this movie, that's part of the plot, however some of the people also swear a lot in the film, nothing that would bother anyone over the age of 12 (swearing accounts, I'd assume the deaths in the film as well however to each their own).
