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>

* * out of 4.

Young woman (Virginia Madsen) wins scholarship to an all male prep school that is slowly going coed. However upon arrival, she notices that the students are acting weird, almost zombie like. As she investigates what is going on, she slowly learns the faculty is kidnapping the students and stealing there brain tissue so they can live forever. They then put a chip in the students mind that keeps them alive, but removes whatever personality they had before.

Slow moving horror film with a good score and appealing performances, but hurt by standard premise, routine direction, bad ending, no scares, and little humor.

Rated R; Mild Violence, Adult Themes.
