Storyline

After a troubled year in school, Jodi is informed by her teacher, Ms. Hemp, that she will recommend to Jodi's father that the girl be sent to a special boarding school next year. Horrified at the thought of being separated from her beloved father, Jodi does what any young child in the same situation would do: she sneaks into the school the next day when nobody is there but Ms. Hemp is there and brutally murders her by crushing her with a bookcase so Ms. Hemp can't meet with her father. Well, maybe Jodi isn't like the other children. As other people start to come between the girl and her father, they also meet similar fates. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Dreadful film
31 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree with the review that stated this might be a nice film for young teens perhaps, but not older teens or adults. It's laughable, the acting is horrible, the characters are idiots, the plot line is incomplete, and the movie in general is poorly executed. The little girls acting is atrocious which probably why she hasn't been in many film roles, the characters are implausibly stupid as they weren't able to figure out what the little girl was doing and none bothered to defend themselves; plots were incomplete with the film not explaining what happens to the girl and her family at the end nor the lawyer; etc. Just a really bad and boring film! Avoid!
