Quotes

Vince Grimaldi: I'm the one who's healthy, it's the rest of society that's dieseased. Look at these girls in gym class, with their breasts bulging out, and tight little shorts on. There just going to grow up to be whores, and sluts, and real estate agents.
Casey Noland: You've been rejected by girls your whole life. What teenage girl wants to be with some lame ass gym coach?
Vince Grimaldi: First of all, Fuck You. Second of all, this conversation is over, 'cause I'm going to kill you now. Turn you into a piece of furniture.

I Found The Film Surprisingly Enjoyable
8 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film seems to have been made on a budget, and took about two years to go from filming to release. And, mysteriously, it looks to be set in 1995, with the way Marilyn Manson is presented. (If it is actually in 2002, the Manson posters and shirts are very out of date.)

Thomas Haden Church is amazing, Lisa Loeb actually pulls off a good look, despite being in her thirties and playing a high school girl. Corey Feldman shows up briefly... so briefly, in fact, it is a wonder why he appears at all.

The plot is great. Some aspects are predictable, others not so much. Anyone who enjoys studying serial killers should enjoy this film, and the gore effects are decent, too. There are a few moments of really bad CGI, but they are not so obnoxious that they cannot be overlooked.

I would not say to go out of your way to see this film, but it really is better than you might expect from the cover. If the purpose of a film is to entertain, this one succeeded.
