Worth a Look
15 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

I stumbled upon this gem of a film at 2 AM on good old UHF during a lengthy HD format and, I'll admit, it kept me quite entertained for the two hours I sat and watched it. Yes, the shaking camera effect and the constant "Disco Ball" reflections are quite cheesy, but there are many other positives to be examined. The characters, while movie and TV stereotypes, are still very representative of actual high school personalities. The brains, bullies, sluts, goths, and hippies were shown just as I remember them. Also, the X-men/The Craft/insert marvel comic here... powers were worked into the plot well. Great movie, Oscar candidate, worthy mention?... nah!!! But if you can take a low budget movie with a grain of salt and you went to a public high school I would recommend this fun little flic. If Blockbuster is out of Hollywood's newest multi-gazillion dollar extravaganza pay the $1 and try it.
