Quotes

Norman Bloom: No, you don't understand. It's not wrong. It's justified. Anderson, Boltz, Baynes, Kramer - they deserve it. They gutted me. They tore me apart every day and they laughed about it. Do you have any idea what that's like? Having your insides torn out with everybody watching... and laughing?

Watchable
7 February 2005 | by sitisapuraSee all my reviews

The movie starts up rather haphazardly and one is left wondering what is happening especially with a drug bust. The movie attempts a twist and turn but gives quite a number of clues away.

Great story of how students relate to each other - the bullies and the sports group. A few die violently due to strange causes; but all with a hangman graphic drawn in their locker. Police and security is unable to solve the case.

Enter a family of private investigators who live in a RV (recreational vehicle - a high end caravan) and take over the case. The sinister plot is unveiled complete with pentagrams and devil worship/voodoo stuff. A clear explanation to all this as the plot is unveiled.

If you watch the trailer, it gives away almost everything there. So don't watch the trailer on the DVD before the movie.

Watchable on that Sunday afternoon if you are not doing anything else. It's rated M 15+ here in Australia, probably because of a few scary, creepy scenes.
