Excellent, a leap for Willamson as director
21 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

Kevin Williamson has shown that he can direct his vision of a movie that he has written. I think this is somewhat suspenseful and articulate. Williamson's use of vocabulary as in his other works is still by far unbelievable. Also, his introduction of the antagonist as she is walking through the hallway as students dodge her path is proving her power as being evil. This movie is also very realistic because everyone has felt threatened by a teacher like Tingle. This movie was excellent and I believe that Kevin Williamson did a great job in his directorial debut.
