Storyline

Tim, Chris and Rand are campus roommates. They are not the closest of friends. When it is announced as being usual to get the best possible grades as compensation for the psychic stress of a roommates' suicide, Tim and Chris decide to kill Rand. After Rand's "suicide", his girlfriend Natalie takes her life, too. She was the roommate of Chris' girl Emma. Who's tricking who? Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

i love this movie
29 October 2004 | by hruleSee all my reviews

OK, this movie starts out like a really bad college movie...but the ending is great. even my parents loved it. but the thing i really love about this movie is....it was filmed at my school! Johns Hopkins University!! of course, you will never see this in the credits, because i bet that Hopkins didn't want to have anything to do with it...it shows the faculty (especially the counselor) as being incomparably incompetent (which is totally the case at JHU) so I figure they didn't want anybody to see this and think that this might be what JHU is like. but anyways... the movie has a really nice twist at the end, and the acting is pretty good. i would recommend it, especially to anybody who is thinking about attending Johns Hopkins. I still don't know where that lighthouse is tho.
