[reads from the suicide note he wrote for Chris]
"To whom it may concern. I, being of sound mind but broken spirit have decided to take my own life. There is no one to blame but a society that has pushed its youth too hard and too fast without ever giving them a parachute if they fail."

"Scream"'s Matthew Lilard is at his insane best in this variation on student life. Unlike another film which took a comic approach to the "dead roommate equals good grades", this film is deadly serious. Good performances aside, the script meanders and lacks true thrills, making it slow going at times. But hang in for the ending - as usual, the best part of the curve is the twist.
