Goofs

During the car chase, the model of the blue car changes back and forth. You can see this by looking at the grill, for most of the chase the badge is in the middle, but at one point near the beginning, and once the car is at the cliff edge the badge is in the top right hand corner of the grill.

Quotes

Marshall Kane: What if I told you I was going to murder one of you today? What if everything I have accomplished in my field thus far was a vicarious way to experience what I'm really drawn to? And what if the truth is that I've studied serial killers all my life because subconciously I wanted to be one... but was too scared to admit it? And what if I had medicated myself for years, seen psychoanalysts to repress this desire and finally, two weeks ago, stopped taking the medication and decided to step into ...

Insight Into The Mind Of Serial Killers
28 June 2002 | by (Niagara Region, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie helps the viewer gain a real insight into the minds of serial killers. It really does, because by the time this piece of utter garbage is over you want to do away with pretty much anybody who had anything to do with it. I mean anybody. The actors, director, writer, producer - even the best boy and key grip! They all need to be prevented from making any more movies.

What else can one say about this? Typical (and therefore dull) slasher type story about a group of students taking a course about serial killers who suddenly find that they're being bumped off one by one in a style reminiscent of Jack the Ripper. One of the students - Molly (A.J. Cook) has been subject to this before, being the only survivor of a serial killer on an island five years before. There's lots of wonderful screaming, and all sorts of suspects, from the appropriately creepy professor to the nerdy social outcast student, and by the end you don't really care who did it; you just want them to finish the job and put this cast out of its misery.

Best line though? It's a class of maybe 10-15 people from the looks of it (maybe not that many.) Two of them are already dead, and one student says to another, "do you think we're being targeted?" How'd this guy get into university in the first place?

No more. It's too painful to think about any more. 1/10.
