High school senior Stacey has a frightening nightmare that just might come true. Christina, the new girl in school, has brought something evil with her and Stacey and all of her friends are threatened. The plot twists and turns, but the ending is the biggest surprise of all. Written by
this is pretty much your run of the mill teen slasher movie: complete with the beautiful people clique, the gratuitous sex, the stereotypical characters (btw did anyone else find them all really rude?), the drugs & booze... the whole package really... i'd also add that the PLOT IS THIN & UNORIGINAL.
i guess it's MILDLY ENTERTAINING, i've got nothing against light entertainment it boasts ALRIGHT SUSPENSE (we know what's going to happen from the start but not really why). it is also QUITE SCARY due to an ACHIEVED TENSION & UNSETTLING MOOD (although i think the director's use of "arty" shots didn't contribute that much). furthermore there are A FEW GOOD LINES in there (yet this may well be due to the fact they are cheesy and bring a whole other level to the film)... but the writing is greatly let down by the poor acting.
i'm aware that this is an independent movie (quite glossy and well "finished" i have to say in it's defence), so i guess you could try and justify this sort of thing... but THE ACTING WAS REALLY DIRE!(i mean jc vandamme/c. norris/c.bronson league, but to make it worst they seem like they're competing for the crown)... you know, the embarrassing & painful kind... the obvious guess is that their priority was the look of the cast (i've got nothing against a bit of eye candy & this was probably not such a bad choice considering the targeted & actual audiences for these sort of films but it really sabotaged the film).
i never leave comments (especially long ones & concerning films i didn't enjoy... they're never the "main" ones are they?... i smell a rat), but the current comment did not satisfy me. this film takes risks? please... this is the official recipe of a tried and tested genre. they clearly knew there is a market for it. the only risks this movie took was the risk of making a bad movie with even worse actors.
sorry if i put anyone off but this was kind of the point. i suggest that U SHOULD NOT PAY to see this film (i'm glad i didn't), BORROW IT off a mate who fell for the comments/rating.
