* * out of 4.
2 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

Routine slasher flick with some style & humor and a better then usual cast is almost ruined by sloppy editing. A killer is on the loose at a local high school killing off all the popular jerks. Jill Schoelen is convinced that the killer is either a formerly crazy friend (Donovan Leitch) or her popular, good looking boyfriend (Brad Pitt, yes that's right BRAD PITT in an early role!!!)

Rated R; Nudity, Violence, Sexual Situations, and Profanity. Trivia: Brad Pitt and Jill Schoelen were an item during and after filming. Brad Pitt was paid $11 (or 12),000 for his role in the film.
