Quotes

Mrs. Bloom: The other tenants have been complaining about the front door being left open. I don't really blame them, with all the kooks running around killing people they don't even know. You know it seems to me if you are going to kill someone you at least know them real well.

A splatter of brain input
23 November 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

At least this movie has consistency. Bad acting, bad script, bad directing, bad everything. What a let down this movie was, especially when judging the cover of a high school girl's bloody fingerprints. This really bad horror movie reminded of that much better film, Fatal Pulse. This is like Amateur hour, sadly with the addition of a twenty minutes. This looney escapes from a mental hospital, where we get to view some of the other patients, one who likes to stab at a doll's head, with his finger. The looney is hiding out at the school, where a series of students end up visiting the morgue. So we've got a slasher by the numbers film, but this one is exceptionally bad. A bearded student who talks with a sarcastic voice, looks very much like someone I know. At least this movie's funny. Nothing else. Bad. Really really bad.
