Corny but surprizingly chilling.
14 August 2002 | by (Devon,England) – See all my reviews

Cherry falls is set in a town where it seems as if no one is innocent.It is about a killer who is going around killing off virgins.The cliche is that the virgin would always live but in this particular movie it is the other way round but it works.

There is a twist among the film (and that is not just finding out who the killer is) you find out the motive what drove the killer to do it and it has something to do more with the local sheriff (I hope I aint giving much away).

The ending has a disturbing and suspenseful effect and you might find it hilarious,but it had me in a jolt.I thought it was predictable who the killer was but the twist and the motive didn't take much to figure out.If you think you know who the killer is,all I can say is look closer.I rate 4/5.
