There's actually a shot that lingers on a door-knob.
23 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's hard to imagine, maybe you can, that a group of "Filmmakers" are sitting around and someone (who now would deny it), perks up an says..."I know what we can do...let's make a Slasher/Psycho Movie and not show any of the Murders...the Fans will love it...and since its a Teen-Horror-Flick...we will have no nudity or sex scenes...boy oh boy will the boys be surprised."

If you are serious about making a serious Thriller with no Gore, no Sex, and very little on screen Violence, you better have one Helluva of a Killer Script with Dialog that is insightful and witty, with some surprises and enough suspense to keep things interesting, stay away from Clichés and above all, be Entertaining.

But, there isn't an iota of intelligence, creativity, or freshness in this tired, slow, no thrills, boring, badly Edited, horribly Acted, Valley Girl Scripted (to Moderns still talk like that), and let's not forget, inept Direction. There is nothing here that can be of the least bit of interest to Movie Lovers or Humanity in general. A bona-fide Stinker.
