The place is Helverton, Colorado, a town of about 350,000 people. 15-year-old Genevieve Gage and her best friend Tiana Moore are typical teenagers who spend a lot of time surfing the internet and sending messages to strangers in chat rooms.

Dee Snider makes at least two references to co-star Robert Englund's most famous character Freddy Krueger. First is as Carleton Hendricks recovers from his fall from the tree. As he sits up he says, "What a rush" in a very passable "Freddy" voice, one of the many one-liners uttered by Freddy Krueger during the series. The second reference is when he's fighting Detective Gage in the church. He says, "First you dream, then you die," a reference to the plot of the Freddy Krueger/A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) series. See more »

We must all go through a rite of passage, and it must be physical, it must be painful, and it must leave a mark.

Tried to contact Scott to state that this movie is dull. IMDB won't let me though. I am way over the age of twelve. Over twice that even and I LOVE movies. I was nervous to see this movie for a long time because I thought the acts towards women might be too brutal and frightening. I finally forced myself to watch it with a friend. I had to apologize for how lame it was. No suspense. Nothing scary. Boring. The trailer and movie cover will kick your ass. Go no further though. it is a waste of your time. maybe someday it will be a famous cult film of some the the worst, famous cult films ever made. Either that or just watch it cause that 'Twisted Sister' guy is in it and you're curious.
