Three beautiful coeds have disappeared, leaving behind some bizarre clues. Are the disappearances somehow related to the fraternity rituals of Rush Week?

Typical slasher, only without the gore.
28 April 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ah, a stereotypical slasher film with all the key ingredients, a college setting, no real plot to speak of, killer in a mask, wonderfully gratuitous female nudity....but one element is missing, THE GORE! Only a couple deaths are gory, the rest are inexplicably offscreen.

Good-looking women in the buff make this worth tracking down, especially for slasher fans.

TRIVIA NOTE: There is no "uncut" version of this movie. The DVD box claims it runs 100 minutes, but the DVD is actually the same as the 96 minute "R" rated release.

MPAA: Rated R for nudity, some violence/gore, and some language.
