Maybe there will be an oversaturation of ''Scream''-inspired horror films someday soon, but this one feels fresh.
50
Chicago Sun-Times
The film is competently made, and the attractive cast emotes and screams energetically.
50
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Like Frankenstein's monster before the lightning strikes, it's all recycled cold flesh and bolts, without a twitch of originality.

ReelViews
With each death, the film becomes less interesting. By the end, it's just a routine slasher flick with a too-predictable final "twist."
50
A premise so rock-solid, so guaranteed to please, that it almost doesn't matter that the movie is otherwise a routine slasher, and not a particularly scary one.
42
Entertainment Weekly
Proficiently filmed and utterly uninspired.
30
Spottily directed and lacking the dubious merits of even the Friday the 13th franchise, this is one slasher film that should die a quick and lonely box-office death.
30
A low-voltage drive-in movie, made strictly by the book.
25
It's simply terrible.
20
Empire
Director Blanks delivers a wholly pedestrian feature debut in this by-numbers teen horror flick that could give you the impression Scream never really happened.
