Storyline

Tim, Chris and Rand are campus roommates. They are not the closest of friends. When it is announced as being usual to get the best possible grades as compensation for the psychic stress of a roommates' suicide, Tim and Chris decide to kill Rand. After Rand's "suicide", his girlfriend Natalie takes her life, too. She was the roommate of Chris' girl Emma. Who's tricking who? Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Tim: All through senior year Rand dates the same girl. And a week before the prom she dumped him. So it's a week before the senior prom and she says to Rand 'We should go as friends'.

And I can see it, mom and dad have the camcorder out, the sister gets to stay up late to see the big sister go to her prom. 11:00 no Rand to be found. But he went to ...

He'd rather kill than study
8 April 2003 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Insane college student figures out a way to get his grades the easy way. Murder. Everything goes his way as he outwits the police, fools the university staff, and pins the rap on his dopey partner. However, all is not as it seems and some surprises are in store for the viewer. Interesting little thriller, with some black comedy thrown in the mix: makes a guy wonder if such a rule could exist in a university without causing just such an incident.
