Alternate Versions

For the 2006 German DVD release from Starmedia Home Entertainment the introduction was re-edited once again. It however has the same sound as the earlier Slasherpool release, and thus also the same running time (89 minutes), but features different images. All the gore is intact. See more »

Bad acting, strange music choices, uneven directing and a lot of fun.
29 April 2011 | by MidoriFioreSee all my reviews

The acting is terrible, it's laughable. The music seems very unfitting at several places, and is cut weirdly. The movie has been color corrected in a way that makes the color seem strange in the scenes in the dark school hallways. Sometime the editing and sound effects are awesome. At other times they are just bad.

But this film is a lot of fun. Several of the characters are so over-the-top that they come out as hilarious. I love the "final girl's" boyfriend. He's a bad-ass. And the fat Shaggy-esque guy is a riot. There are some really cool deaths, like the buzz-saw murder or the with the fire extinguisher-kill. They are great.

And the ending was actually unexpected. Good job there.

Despite all the flaws it's worth a watch. And you know what? I had much better time watching this low budget slasher than Mikael Håfström's big budget Strandvaskaren/Drowning Ghost. This is way better.
