When the goofy male student is passing out flyers advertising the big party, his friends come up to him and they begin a conversation. During this conversation, from shot to shot, the sun is sometimes shining down brightly and casting long shadows. Then suddenly it is much darker with minimal sun. Then back to intense sunshine again. This happens over and over again a dozen times in about a minutes time. See more »
sniff, sniff...what's that you smell? oh, look. it's a steaming pile of frightmare. this painfully inadequate attempt of a movie is truly terrible. usually, if a movie is really really awful...as bad as "ax 'em" (2002) per say, then i find something redeeming about the fact that it is absurdly lacking any quality that might suggest an iota of professionalism. however, unlike those gems, frightmare had a budget of more that 50 dollars. it has the quality of any made for tv movie (lights, a decent camera, etc), however the acting made me want to poke out my eyes in an oedipal act of anguish. and maybe the fact that it follows the plot to 'scream' so predictably, yet attempts to come off seriously, was what really got under my skin. it simply shouts mediocre louder than any movie i have ever seen.
