Storyline

School's out, exams are over, and it's time for real life to begin. But before 12 friends from the International High School in Prague disappear to the four corners of the earth, they intend to throw the best party of their lives. The idea to stage the party in Prague's biggest swimming pool is illegal but cool. And when Gregor, the laid-back leader of the group thinks an idea is good, then no-one else from the group objects. But what begins as the night of all nights quickly turns into a life and death struggle, as the friends come to realise that death itself is on the guest list... A mysterious masked killer sets a hunt in motion that ranges through the facility's halls and corridors. As the kids panic it begins to dawn on them that the killer must be one of them...

Awful...
24 October 2005 | by GuineaPigSee all my reviews

This movie was awful. You can spot a non-horror fan directing a horror movie like this miles away.

Half the actors were bad and the other half were bad and annoying. Between the first rules of a good horror movie is that annoying characters shouldn't live!!! they should have horrible, painful deaths!! Not only the most annoying character of this crap survives but she becomes the hero! I wanted to shot myself after watching this. One of the deaths was worth it, the slide one, but I was hoping that chick would survive since she was the only hot one.

This movie sucks in every way possible.

A question to the producers: Do you make this crap only for the money? or do you actually think this is good? because if you do think this is good, you should change jobs ASAP!!!!
