Storyline

Dodgy car salesman Bill Rander runs a racket with the help of his devoted orphaned nephew Jeremy. The boy is supposed to seduce his new history teacher Carrie Ryans, whose ex Dean contests custody over their daughter Lacey, so Bill can make compromising pictures to blackmail her. But after she encourages his academic talent, even helps to apply for a scholarship, Jeremy gets real feelings for her and calls the deal off, just after Bill murdered her wealthy dad, eager for the inheritance.

a failure of a movie
4 July 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The movie puts far too heavy emphasis on the weak dialogue. Simply put, the people in this movie talk like books, and it really shows. The roles of the actors are unanimously archetypal and lack any and all depth. Probably the weakest thing in the film is Ashley Jones's acting, which is clearly not at the level necessary for a dialogue heavy film-- her portrayal of a teacher is completely unconvincing.

The plot was not altogether terrible but poor directing simply made this movie an assembly line of clichés (the plot could have been salvaged with strong acting, good script, and a greater focus on either horror, or relevant pressing issues. Not to mention the plot is neither plausible nor remotely menacing. The cinematography is amateurish and the script was overwritten and juvenile.

The part of the film that almost makes it comedic, is the score. At scarcely rare moments when i found myself actually feeling sorry for Jeremy Rander's character, a much too over the top song would start playing. This made the movie an almost unintentional satire and hilarious to make fun of.

One thing they did right in the film was the pacing; the thanklessly weak plot managed to progress smoothly.

Watch only if u get some kind of enjoyment in bad films.
