Trivia

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 »

Helen Mirren Teaches Acting
2 January 2000 | by (Atlanta) – See all my reviews

This isn't a dreadful film, merely insipid. The plot is deeply flawed and implausible. It tries to be a number of genres and fails at each. It fails as a comedy, as a suspense thriller and as a horror movie. It almost succeeds as science fiction. The direction is uninspired and Katie Holmes, cute cherub face that she is, should be modeling teen clothing, not acting. The only thing that keeps this movie from being a 1 out of 10 is Helen Mirren. Her performance is fabulously nefarious and is (almost) worth suffering through the rest of it. Her ability to transmute from imperious to faux sympathetic to deviously manipulate and control her prey shows masterful range. Other than Marissa Coughlin's delightful Exorcist rendition, Mirren is the only reason to see this movie. A solid 3.0.
