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.

Bad acting, strange music choices, uneven directing and a lot of fun.
29 April 2011 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The acting is terrible, it's laughable. The music seems very unfitting at several places, and is cut weirdly. The movie has been color corrected in a way that makes the color seem strange in the scenes in the dark school hallways. Sometime the editing and sound effects are awesome. At other times they are just bad.

But this film is a lot of fun. Several of the characters are so over-the-top that they come out as hilarious. I love the "final girl's" boyfriend. He's a bad-ass. And the fat Shaggy-esque guy is a riot. There are some really cool deaths, like the buzz-saw murder or the with the fire extinguisher-kill. They are great.

And the ending was actually unexpected. Good job there.

Despite all the flaws it's worth a watch. And you know what? I had much better time watching this low budget slasher than Mikael Håfström's big budget Strandvaskaren/Drowning Ghost. This is way better.
