16 September 2002 | by (Click on my name for over 500 horror movie reviews!) – See all my reviews

Slick handsome thriller about a group of teens who break into a department story for the thrill of it all, but find themselves falling victim to a deranged police officer whom the teens caused to lose his job earlier that day. While this slasher is exciting and generates much suspense (while building up characterization too), at times I felt like I was watching a Die Hard ripoff.

Rated R; Violence.
