A plead to never ever let any one you like watch this movie
3 July 2003 | by (Detroit) – See all my reviews

I found this movie at a garage sale for $1. I took it home and watched it. I want my dollar back. Not only did I have to sit through what could possibly be the worst horror movie of all time, I, unlike others. found the men in this movie to be looks-wise in the same category as the dweeb in my freshman year of highschool that tossed spit balls at in class and still went around snapping girls' bras. Corny deaths of characters I enjoyed watching die. Carrie's mother taking to a photograph. A plotline that even Ed Wood would consider campy. A movie trying to banl off of the storylines of The Faculty and that other movie where the kids are under mind control and all go crazy. Take my advice...bring some ham to go with this cheese, and some fries for all the special effects ketchup.
