Several people in a near-empty school get attacked by random guys - well, probably not random in writing, but their identities are never revealed - and so people die.
I'm not sure whether our protagonist was supposed to be shown in a sympathetic light or supposed to be a deadbeat as hinted at in one scene. If he was a deadbeat the level of "political correctness gone mad" simply was unbearable. If not, well... truthfully he wasn't charismatic enough to get my sympathy.
The kills are violent albeit only shown after the fact hence losing some impact they otherwise would have had.
Honestly I felt pretty apathetic.
