Decent, Not Wonderful
4 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A woman goes to previously all-male boarding school on a scholarship. She begins to separate herself from her boyfriend in order to devote more time to her new environment. Over a course of time she notices that more and more students have lost their individuality, and approach their activities in a lifeless and automatic manner.

The most notable thing about this film is the pairing of two cult actresses: Sherilyn Fenn ("Twin Peaks") and Virginia Madsen ("Candyman"), as well as producing legend Cassian Elwes. Beyond that, the movie is largely forgettable.

Honestly, I think the worst part of the movie is the title. There is little inspiration that could have made such a bland title, and the film deserves better. Indeed, the first half exudes the 1980s horror sensibility and many fans of that era will like this one. It goes a bit downhill later on, but overall could have acquired a bit of a cult following with a better name and maybe a minor tweaking of the script.
