The story follows Jamie as she tries to stop the murders of her mother, Tiffany, Marisa, and Heather that took place over the course of three nights in 1987. Along the process, she learns that her mother and her pals were bullies who harassed their classmates and enemies, not the helpless victims they initially appeared to be. Jamie also finds out that the murderer is someone she knows right now and that his crimes are motivated by a personal reason. Before he kills her mother and imprisons her in the past permanently, she must find a method to stop him.

The movie is both a spoof of the teen comedy genre and a tribute to famous slasher movies from the 1980s, like Halloween, Friday the 13th, and A Nightmare on Elm Street. The movie makes references to ’80s pop culture, including actors, music, fashion, and movies. Additionally, the movie plays with time-travel clichés and tropes including paradoxes, alternate histories, and butterfly consequences.

On September 28, 2023, the movie had its Fantastic Fest premiere. It received high ratings from both viewers and critics. The comedy, tension, gore, performances, and soundtrack of the movie received high accolades. On October 6, 2023, the movie appeared on Amazon Prime Video.
