Ten years after witnessing her older sister's brutal murder, Jenny Traylor leaves her hometown in North Carolina to start her freshman year at the University of New York City. Still traumatized by her sister's death and struggling with crippling agoraphobia, Jenny tries to cope with the overwhelming city and figure out her new life. When Jenny's over-enthusiastic Resident Advisor organizes a Welcome Week scavenger hunt, Jenny is reluctantly persuaded to join the game. But as she and her new friends decipher the cryptic clues texted to their cell phones - clues that lead them through darker and increasingly remote parts of the city - it becomes terrifyingly clear how high the stakes have become. Someone is hunting for real. Written by
Don't let the nice cover of the movie fool you! This movie is somewhat of a disappointment.
The story is slow moving, but will get you there eventually. There are times where the story becomes stale and brings down the flow of the movie. The plot is somewhat interesting, but it fails to shine through given the slow speed and lack of thrills throughout the movie.
Some of the good things in the movie were some of the killing scenes, that they were actually adequate to look at. Also, despite having a super predictable story, there is a brief moment of interest when the reason for what is happening becomes revealed. But nothing to get you choked on your popcorn.
I found most of the acting to be adequate, which helped me actually sit through the entire movie. But this movie is definitely not a movie that you will watch again once seen it. I do not recommend that you pick up this movie if you are looking for a good horror or thriller.
