Storyline

Nobody believes a liar - even when they're telling the truth. When a young woman is found murdered, a group of local high school students decide to further scare their classmates by spreading online rumors that a serial killer called "The Wolf" is on the loose. By describing "The Wolf's" next victims, the students' game is to see how many people they can convince - and if anyone will uncover the lie. But when the described victims actually do start turning up dead, suddenly no one knows where the lies end and the truth begins. As someone or something begins hunting the students themselves, the game turns terrifyingly real. Written by focus features

much better than you would expect!
13 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw it at a screening and was surprised at how much I liked it and now I have to see it again because the ending was so shocking, from memory it holds up...I can't think of any holes, have to go back to be sure. No gore, but really well done suspense. It's been a while since there's been a good suspense film. At the beginning you think it might be another "Scream" but it goes deeper. They expect the audience to be smarter! Great script! The acting worked, in particular Lindy Booth and Julian Morris. The score was different which made it more interesting. It's really hard to imagine in this day and age they made this for $1 million dollars! I absolutely recommend this movie.
