You're wrong. The good things I remember about my father - the walks we took, the fairy tales he read to me - they all really happened.
He read you other fairy tales that you forgot.

Going back to their boarding school for a new semester, a young girl finds that her best friend has fallen under the spell of a seductive newcomer and begins acting strangely under her spell while a rash of murders on campus point out the real truth behind the new student.
This was a pretty disappointing and eventually not that worthwhile vampire effort that has precious little going for it. The main factor going against it is the whole drama approach, both in tone and content, as the fact that the film's so slow to get anything going it's barely able to showcase anything because it's got the wrong pace to do that with. While the romance and seduction of the student is nice, it's got the wrong victim as the lead is more damaged than the friend and is therefore more susceptible to the charms and advances, and moreso it doesn't show anything at all despite being set at an all-girls' boarding school as the whole romance takes place off-camera or behind closed doors. The rash of murders are never seen committed or raise anything for the students, and the whole subplot comes off as sloppy. It does have a few good moments, as there's some great imagery in the finale before their finale battle, and the fact that this is one of the cleverest ways to play out a book adaptation without hitting it on the head saying their doing so is pretty clever, but overall this one is just not that worthwhile.
