Close it, you're letting a draft in
5 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Angelica, upset that she's grounded and can't hook up with this one boy at a party that night is sulking. That is until her catty "best friend" sends pics to her cell phone showing the boy being unfaithful. She takes it upon herself to call a ominous radio show where she vents and wishes certain people would leave her alone, little realizing the dire consequences that she has set in motion.

It all boils down to merely another light-weight 'teen scream' flick with practically no scares, hammy over-acting and clichés galore. Of course with that said, for its sub-genre and my more or less general disdain for teeny-bopper 'horror', I didn't find it absolutely awful. Yes that's the most positive thing that you'll get out of me in regards to this movie.
