Storyline

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. Eventually a diabolical plot fostered by the faculty begins to emerge. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

It was a student film - more inside info...
24 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you read the bio of Aziz Ghazal (writer/director) you'll know that pretty much everything done on the film was done by USC film students, for free - so it's no wonder that the end result is not too professional.

They wanted songs in the film that sounded just like the ones they had put in as temporary music (but could not afford to pay royalties for) - They did not want real original music from us, or anything of any quality beyond the drivel that was radio play in those days! I know because my songwriting partner and I were engaged to "knock off" sound-alike tunes for them...all also for free. We did it, but with a lot of contempt for the project itself and everyone involved in it - especially Aziz. The result of this disdain was the source of inspiration for the track "Kiss My Butt" at the end of the film. (It was our own inside joke and commentary about them!) My songwriting partner and I were in tears laughing while putting the song together - funnier still was, that they bought it - and used it in the film! Quite fitting. :-)
