Storyline

Ten years ago four students were killed at a school, the killer was arrested and put in jail. Now, a couple of students have decided to do an essay on the murders. They get in touch with the killer who claims that he's innocent and that the principal is in fact the real killer. They take his word for it and decide to break into school one late night to find proof. What they don't know is that someone doesn't want the truth to come out and as the night falls, they soon realize that they're trapped inside the school with a vicious serial killer.

I had a good time watching this with a few friends.
21 July 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Surely this is no masterpiece. If you'll enjoy this movie really depends on whether you're trying to take it serious or not. I believe I wouldn't have enjoyed it if I watched it alone but it was tons of fun watching it with friends and pointing out plot-holes, people's tendency to drop their weapons or the director's inclination to stick the camera onto different weapons.

While this does not speak for the actual "quality" of the film, I can say it is definitely possible to enjoy this movie. Although to be honest it tends to drag at points and becomes a bit repetitive (they see one of the murderers, knock him unconscious, run away and hide, one person gets killed - repeat) but i guess the characters are meant to act stupid since otherwise the movie would be over after 10 minutes (that's actually the case for most slasher movies). I do not believe this was meant to be such a serious movie and thus it should probably not be judged as such: It's a gory and silly flick. Still, even in that category there's better movies. As I said, it can get boring at times, there's a few unnecessary twists (especially the last scene) and some bad editing.

Note: I watched the badly dubbed German version so i can't really say much about the acting.
