Storyline

Nerdy, reserved bookworm Needy Lesnicki, and arrogant, conceited cheerleader Jennifer Check are best friends, though they share little in common. They share even less in common when Jennifer mysteriously gains an appetite for human blood after a disastrous fire at a local bar. As Needy's male classmates are steadily killed in gruesome attacks, the young girl must uncover the truth behind her friend's transformation and find a way to stop the bloodthirsty rampage before it reaches her own boyfriend Chip. Written by The Massie Twins

Quotes

Needy Lesnicky: Why do you need him? Huh? You can have anybody that you want, Jennifer. So why Chip? Is it just to tick me off, or is it just because you're just really insecure?
Jennifer Check: I am not insecure, Needy. God... that's a joke. How could I ever be insecure? I was the Snowflake Queen.
Needy Lesnicky: Yeah... two years ago when you were socially relevant.
Jennifer Check: I am still socially relevant.
Needy Lesnicky: And when you didn't need laxatives to stay skinny.
Jennifer Check: [enraged] I am going to eat your soul... and SHIT IT OUT, Lesnicky!
Needy Lesnicky: I thought you only murdered ...

Grossly mismarketed

The director, Cody Diablo, never meant for this to be categorized as a "horror" film, which is precisely what happened. This movie is a fine example of a dark comedy. The dialogue is very quotable, and, if you have a twisted sense of humour and enjoy sarcasm (as I do), you will enjoy this movie. The "scary" scenes aren't scary; there is a lot of over the top gore. Essentially, this movie mocks teen horror flicks. It plays off of the emo trend to create ironic humour, and the laughs come in when you least expect them. It also has a surprisingly respectable soundtrack. If you've yet to see this, I recommend it as a rental for a night in. You will be entertained. Please realize that this is a comic gem full of snark and wit, and don't expect to be frightened. Sit back and enjoy it for what it is; entertainment.
