You Don't Go To Hell, You Go To High School
2 July 2004 | by (Haddonfield, IL) – See all my reviews

Definitely weird but ultimately boring "supernatural teen revenge" flick gets its only thrills from the subversive sexuality running throughout the whole thing. The incarnation of Lucifer is an effeminate high schooler, his enemies are two male archangels reincarnated as pretty teenage girls, there are a few instances of male full frontal nudity and gay kissing, and one doomed bully grows supernatural breasts (after kissing the demonic boy). A creepy zombie attack livens things up a bit, but not much. The fact that this is a low budget flick is actually what made it more interesting to me, if the special effects had been phenomenal then it would have been even more boring. As it stands, it's just a slightly off-kilter retread through "Carrie"/"Omen" territory. Keep an eye out for the killer dodge ball!
