The only class she is worse than the leader in is history, taught by Mrs. Tingle, and the teacher hates her.

[DELETED POST-CREDIT SCENE: closeup of a door. There is a knock, and the doorbell rings. The door is opened by an unseen homeowner. Standing just outside is an all-too-familiar figure, well-dressed and carrying a suitcase]

Most people don't like this because of what happened at Columbine High. But Hello! This is just a movie! A Great Movie! Movies don't create psychos! This movie is Kevin Williamson's masterpiece, it's full of suspense and comedy. The dialogues are great written. And the actors are great as well, especially Helen Mirren and Katie Holmes. Kevin Williamson Rocks!
