Leigh Ann is salutatorian when she needs to be valedictorian to get her scholarship to Harvard. The only class she is worse than the leader in is history, taught by Mrs. Tingle, and the teacher hates her.

In the scene where Ms. Banks is subbing for Mrs. Tingle she tells the class that "Josephine was just a little slut-bag whore, who was leaving her panties all around town." This is very similar to a line from another Kevin Williamson movie, Scream (1996). In Scream, Billy tells Sydney that her mother "was a slut-bag whore who flashed her shit all over town". See more »
No accused witch was burned at Salem. The victims of the scare were all hanged. Therefore Leigh Ann's report is flawed and Mrs. Tingle is entitled to mark her down on it. See more »
Although most critics taught this movie a lesson in film making by giving it horrible reviews, I found this flick rather interesting. I thought all the actors and actresses did a wonderful job of keeping in mind that this situation is supposed to be reality and you can see the fear in their minds. This is most evident when they visit Mrs. Tingle at her house. Once they make the fateful mistake, I personally could put myself in their shoes because what if that did happen in real life. What would you do? How would you handle it? Helen Mirren did a believable job as a wicked teacher and Molly Ringwald has a nice touch on the film in a cameo. Marisa Coughlan and Barry Watson also did an outstanding job for their first big movie. I would give this film a A- for somewhat originality and full believability. At least I gave the movie a better grade then Leigh Ann received on her project!
