Storyline

Somewhere in Wichita, Kansas, David is a potential college football star who's just won a four year scholarship to a (no doubt, nice posh) college somewhere in Oaklahoma. His mates decide to throw him a serious farewell party whilst his folks are out that night. Unfortunatley three uninvited guests secretly gatecrash these nightly celebrations, two are convicts who've fled from lockup, now hiding out somewhere in the homes cellar, while our third interloper is a mental patient escapee, with a connection to the party guests and notably David himself. Before long homicidal rage resurfaces in one of these trio leading to a carnage filled rampage. Written by suspicous

A good scream, a touch above most b grades
10 December 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a slasher flick (actually banned in Queensland) you don't expect to be as good as if prejudging it by it's cover. Sure, I believe most of the other ratings are too high for it, it still isn't a bad, slice em' and dice em' And there is a thriller concept to it, that works quite well with the story. A high school jock/stud, Billy is being thrown a scholarship party, where two escaped psychos are earlier seen robbing a cafe and shooting down cops. They hold out in the attic of Billy's house where the party is only starting. Soon people start dropping off whether, being knifed, or having their faces fried. Unfortunately too, Billy ran out of his much needed medication to counteract his much violent moodswings, that we see in some chilling one-two second facials, where he reacts sensitively to some out of taste remarks, and Billy too tries his best to control it, where he gets some nasty headaches. And of course Billy's parents are out at dinner that night. He had been released from a psychiatric facility some time back, as we hear from a psychiatrist at the film's start, dictaphone in hand, although we don't see Billy, so there could be another psycho out there, roaming about. Also we see Billy flashing out too, signs of someone coming apart. Some of the characters are so unlikeable in this movie, you wanna see them bumped off. Also among the party, is an estranged young red headed girl, Billy's current love, who has a little bit of a dark side to her, especially when overreacting to a remark by a party clown. There's always one, isn't there. Of course this is B grade, but it's a lot better than most of it's type. The thriller angle is a plus to it, the identity of the killer worth it's watch. The only annoying thing was those bloody dancers in bloody club. What was their purpose? The actress who plays the girlfriend of Billy's best friend, isn't bad either.
