Diana inizia a insegnare in una scuola prestigiosa, dopo aver subito un trauma anni prima. Ben presto però accadono piccoli fatti inquietanti e scopre che l'insegnante che l'aveva preceduta è morta in un incidente alquanto strano; gli alunni sembrano avere un segreto in comune e la stessa direttrice della scuola tiene un atteggiamento ambiguo. Diana ha il conforto di un commissario di polizia, ma anche lui dubita di quello che lei vede e dei fatti che le accadono. Quando poi Anna, un'alunna, scompare e Diana viene scelta dagli alunni come loro accompagnatrice per una gita scolastica... Su tutto aleggia l'ombra di un misterioso gioco del quale tutti negano di sapere qualcosa. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

BORING TV film from great Lamberto Bava
2 March 2005 | by (Birmingham, UK) – See all my reviews

Well, it's not a big surprise for me that I'm actually the first to review this film cause there's nothing special about it. It's along with few other movies(SODOMA'S GHOSTS, NIGHT AT THE CEMETERY), a rare example of eurohorror that's really boring & worthless. It tells us a story of young teacher who tries to find out something about "the Game" that her pupils are playing. The cliché-ridden script was co-written by overly prolific Dardano Saccetti(Demoni, Zombi2 and half a billion of other Italian horror flicks) so, do expect plot situations and twists lifted right from THE BEYOND, THE OGRE, and the other films he scripted.Kids are all small and repulsive It's a TV movie, so there's no gore in. I mean it - no gore at all!Just like in Bava's similar gore free pseudo horror shlock NIGHT AT THE CEMETERY. At a positive side, I'd point out the atmospheric opening sequence and nice music by always reliable Simon Boswell(Deliria, and many other Lamberto Bava flicks) So I conclude: buy or watch it only if you're a Bava completist, otherwise you may die of boredom.
