If You're A Virgin, you die
1 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

The Plot In the small town of Cherry Falls a psycho killer is killing virgin teenagers and when the high school students find this out they decide to go all out and have an orgy but will that save them.

A slasher movie with an interesting but stupid twist instead of the virgins being the safe one the killer is offing them instead. Coming out in the trend of the slasher come back of the late nineties through to the naughty's, Cherry Falls follows in that vibe showing at that of the start of a new millennium the year 2000 the makers takes a twist on all of those clichéd slasher movies and offers something slightly different.

I loved the small town vibe with its odd characters and its skeletons in the closet. Something off's in this town. also loved the mystery element centering around the Sheriff and the high school head master. But sadly this is just the same as all the other slasher movies and the whodunit storyline wasn't that hard to figure out and the death scenes were mostly offscreen which was such a slap in the face but despite these flaws Cherry Falls in an OK above average slasher.

The acting, Brittany Murphy looks and feels like a real teenager with charisma to boot, It's always a pleasure to see Michael Biehn (Brent) in a good movie, I love the man and hope he keeps on taking good roles like this one, Biehn is fantastic ages like a fine wine, Gabriel Mann (Kenny)? looks old and can't act, Jay Mohr (Leonard) does fine in his small role as the likable and understanding hip teacher, Candy Clark (Mandy) gives an odd but very interesting performance and Jesse Bradford a great actor as always and he should be on the a-list by now and get better movie parts than victim #1, he should have had a bigger role he would have been better as the boyfriend part.

All in all Cherry Falls is an OK entry to the Slasher genre with a modern twist story line helped along with slick acting. 6/10
