    This wasn't what I thought it would be. I was expecting the supernatural, instead I got a very straight-forward slasher film. The kills are generic and mostly off-screen, and there isn't much in the way of chases or suspense. For the first hour, I thought it might have been filmed as a PG-13. However, once the killer is unmasked, there's a silly motive speech and a fairly entertaining final stand-off between them and the last ones standing. There isn't a whole lot to the characters, lots of mean-girl antics and cat-fighting. The movie commits a major slasher movie no-no by
    letting the meanest of the girls survive.

    If you're in the mood for a slight and stupid little teen slasher movie, give it a look when it hits SHUDDER. I don't think I'd recommend paying the VOD rental.

    I just saw You're Next and was impressed by that. So I'll check this out as soon as I can.
