The school is under going tests of a new security system. Jo and several others students are to remain behind while the others leave for Spring Break.

D: Michael Hamilton Wright S: Lance Henriksen, Chelcie Swan, Phillipe Bergeron.

This is the story about a girl who hates her school and her morally incorrect father, who happens to be a rich owner of a computer software company... go figure. So she tries to destroy his company but instead gets sent to a private school, which looks more like a teen drug house then a school. Which now she hates as well, so she of course, as to destory that by installing a menacing computer virus called "THE MANGLER" then the software goes on a ridiculous killing spree, pulling the plug on all her friends... it's just too bad he didn't pull the plug on this movie.

Overall very boring and un-entertaining film, now believe me I had very underdoggish hopes for this movie, hopefully like some direct-to-video horrors, (i.e; The Dentist) would have a somewhat convincing story line. But instead it desides to take another direction digging and burying itself into a shallow grave. Now is the movie bad, Yes, is it horrible, Maybe... is it the #3 worst movie of all time, probably not. You people need to check the movie How High out. Beware in this movie Lance Henriksen doesn't even give a good performance.

Co-starring: Dexter Bell, Daniella Lavengsta, Will Sanderson, Miles Meadows.
