A teen angst thriller at a high school gripped by an apparent curse that claims the life of a senior every year. Story follows a senior, Chrissie, who is skeptical, and another, Tracy, who believes that she may be the next victim.
The promising high school soccer player Scott is injured on the knee in a game and two years after, he is still trying to heal his knee. The teenager Jules feels unrequited love for him but Scott is concentrated in recovering his physical condition and considers her as a friend. The also teenager Bess that works in the store owned by David with her mature colleague Andie has a crush on Scott. When Scott is stalked by a mysterious person that threatens Jules, he believes that Bess is responsible for the weird situations. Is his assumption correct? Written by

'Crush' is more than a common thriller; it's an intriguing and thought-provoking movie, which makes you think whether those we admire are worth of our admiration, and whether those we resent really deserve our rejection. For, in the end it all comes down to real love, as the ones who love us love everything about us, no matter how crazy or weird we might seem to everyone else. 'Crush' is also a reminder that nothing in life as it seems and one should not jump into conclusions based on impressions one gets, but rather look beyond appearance and see what lies beneath. My favorite characters are Bess (Crystal Reed) and Jeffrey (Reid Ewing).
