It's gotta' stop, Hoax.
I'm growing weary of you, cousin.
Go to hell.

So, maybe this movie isn't up for an acdemy award, but look at what people are saying. Just because Freddy Krueger directed it, people think it's going to be another "Elm Street" venture? Personally, when I first saw this movie I didn't like it. I thought it was poorly acted, and rather stupid. But then I looked INTO the movie and I saw that it had a message. Yes, a message! I can identify with Hoax, no, not because of the atmosphere at home or because of a cousin that saves the day. In high school every day, I've faced toilet dunking and another horrible things that cruel people have done to me. I know exactly how Hoax felt. And I understood exactly what went on. If you're looking at it from a different point of view, then this movie isn't for you in the first place. But for anyone who has had to deal with cruel jocks and for anyone who has always been ridiculed by girls and others, this movie is for you. Just don't expect it to be another "Elm Street" installment!
