Good for what it was...but was expecting something else
18 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to say I did enjoy the film, the only thing was when I read about it, I was expecting something a little bit more suspenseful. I was kind of expecting more like a thriller in the lines of "Se7en" or "Silence of the Lambs", but instead I was watching a slasher flick.

Once I discovered what it was though, I allowed myself to enjoy it and was not bored. It would be a movie I would see again, I just thought it could've been done a little bit differently. There were too many slasher clichés that were brought up, I thought, the hot girls kissing, the nudity; I did however find the character of Oscar somewhat interesting. And the plot twist that was added has been done before.
