Eight unsuspecting high school seniors at a posh boarding school, who delight themselves on playing games of lies, come face-to-face with terror and learn that nobody believes a liar - even when they're telling the truth.
Tom returns to his hometown on the tenth anniversary of the Valentine's night massacre that claimed the lives of 22 people. Instead of a homecoming, Tom finds himself suspected of committing the murders, and it seems like his old flame is the only one that believes he's innocent.
The murderous fisherman with a hook is back to once again stalk the two surviving teens, Julie and Ray, who had left him for dead, as well as cause even more murder and mayhem, this time at a posh island resort.

Michael Biehn initially wasn't interested in the movie because, after reading 15 pages of the script, he thought it was just another slasher movie. His agent convinced him to keep reading. Biehn liked the satirical approach to the genre and decided to do the movie. See more »
When Jody is talking to Leonard Iveston, the word Byron is wiped out on the board behind them in the close up shots. When the camera goes to the long angle where most of the classroom can be seen, Byron is chalked onto the board again. See more »
The movie had to be re-cut five times in order to achieve an R-rating. Most significant cuts include:
Graphic sexual activity during the climactic orgy sequence;
The death of Annette (Clementine Ford); the originally scripted scene showed her having her throat slowly pushed onto a pane of glass. The scene was filmed and very brutal, done all in one graphic cut. However, it was later replaced with her character's head split open in the front door. That scene was still trimmed heavily; in unrated versions the top of her head erupts and a splash of blood flies across the doorjamb.
This movie rocks. I loved every second of it. Very scary and funny, with some great performances and a clever script. The killer is a great addition to the scream psycho pantheon. Britany Murphy is very good in this, as is Jay More and Candy Clarke. The movie is well paced and never boring. There is gore for the hounds, sex for the horns, and some cool twists along the way. The story is much more interesting then typical slasher fare, and would have played well to a theatrical audience. They should have sent it out instead of dumping it on video.
I highly recommend this as the best in the post Scream neo slashers of the 1990's.
