Storyline

School's out, exams are over, and it's time for real life to begin. But before 12 friends from the International High School in Prague disappear to the four corners of the earth, they intend to throw the best party of their lives. The idea to stage the party in Prague's biggest swimming pool is illegal but cool. And when Gregor, the laid-back leader of the group thinks an idea is good, then no-one else from the group objects. But what begins as the night of all nights quickly turns into a life and death struggle, as the friends come to realise that death itself is on the guest list... A mysterious masked killer sets a hunt in motion that ranges through the facility's halls and corridors. As the kids panic it begins to dawn on them that the killer must be one of them...

Trivia

In the scene where Mel waits for Martin in the gym, the words "Have a Nice Day" can be seen etched on the killer's machete. See more »

Goofs

Martin is in the ventilation ducts and is trying to slide past the machete. It is along his leg several inches above the bottom of his shorts when the machete is pulled back slicing his leg. However, in the closeup it cuts just above the knee on bare skin, but in the wider shot the machete is still up on his shorts. See more »

Quotes

Greg: I'm sorry, Sarah. I didn't know your father was still an issue. You don't talk about it anymore.
Sarah: So I should cry about it everyday, that way you can remember?

Not Bad.
10 January 2004 | by (Austin,Texas) – See all my reviews

As I have said before, I rent low-budget or unknown horror when I can. I find this one quite by accident and put it on my Netflix account. I was pleastly suprised. After sitting through less then steller movies such as Terror Toons and Camp Blood one and two this was quite good.

Sure its the same old slasher/Ten Little Indians formula. A bunch of teens in a place they shouldn't be and locked up inside as it is a party start getting killed, so the killer must be...do do dooooo. ONE OF THEM!!! Like the guy before me, I agree some of the death scences are pretty cool, the waterslide comes to mind...The acting is so/so..Nice to see Miller getting some work...It's funny I was just watching late,late night reruns of that show..That's My Bush the other day.

Anyway, this movie a decent staple and overall not bad. You need these kind of movie to help push stars and propel other movies higher. As Horror goes, there is much worse and while the ending and the killer/killers Motive is lame the movie is an enjoyable way to kill a couple hours.
