This is my game. We're gonna play by my goddamn rules!
26 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You can have the shower scene in Psycho, if you want, but I will take Rebecca Stacey anytime. The Psycho scene is her greatest fear and she joins six of her friends who express what they fear the most while a killer (Debbie Rochon) is listening in.

"Don't you get lonely" Sure, I do, Debbie, and you can tie me up and do your stuff and I will die a happy man.

But, I wasn't real happy with what I thought was going to be a slasher flick, and it turned out to just be a mind game.

The ending was weird, too. But Debbie Rochon was pretty much in the whole picture, so it was a treat.
