Calvin Dean's make-up took 3 hours every day. Each vein on his face and hands were painted individually using a special type of ink. During the swimming pool scenes his make-up was 'glued' to his face to keep it in place. See more »

Anyway, this is not a bad little independent film. It keeps your interest (unlike most teen slasher films) and pays minimal attention to reality. The adults (teachers and staff) are totally clueless and basically uninterested in what's going on, while every teen in the movie is almost a super-genius at villainy. (The basic theme of the film is "don't be a bully or bad things might happen.") I find it a bit charming that there's never any explanation about why things are happening in the way that they are. Got somebody coming back from the dead? Sorry, not enough time to explain why. Also, it's hard to see that there are any "rules" to this movie. Bad people get what's coming to them, but (fairly) good people get it, too.
Production values are pretty high, cinematography is more than adequate, and the music fits in well. What more do you need? Definitely suggested as being a cut above the average slasher flick.
