The head girl Justine gives a speech on the funeral of the teenage schoolmate Darren Mullet who has just committed suicide but she does not recall who he was. Then she is invited by Alexis to date him in the celebration party in the house of his friend Bradley. Soon Justine discovers that Darren had a crush on her and was bullied by Bradley and his friends including Alexis. When each one of Bradley's friends is found dead, they discover that Darren has returned from beyond to revenge the humiliations he was submitted to.Written by

As mentioned in the DVD commentary, various people played different parts of Darren Mullet when Calvin A. Dean was (I) in make-up or shooting a different scene. This was mainly for scenes just showing his hands. See more »
Nearly everyone has the apparently unpopular and bullied character's phone number saved into their phones. See more »
Bradley, you are so fucking childish.

Bro, you better put a muzzle on that bitch of yours.

This is a so called "slasher for the skins generation". I am only assuming then that this means the "skins generation" has low expectations.
The story is fairly laughable. A fat, wheezy school boy is teased by all the cool kids in school, commits suicide and then comes back from the dead to exact gruesome revenge. This is the sort of thing you got in the mid 80's towards the end of the first slasher movie trend, and to be honest they did it better (although still not good).
The script was generally fairly appalling with little or no original thought gone into it.
The acting ranged from bad to average. Some of the cast can obviously act but are given nothing but rubbish to say others have rubbish to say and are rubbish at saying it.
The "killer" is particularly bad and I just laughed whenever he appeared in any so called scary scene. He wasn't in the least bit scary - fairly bad makeup and extremely bad direction failed to emit even a modicum of fear.
The ending was hammered home to you a good 30 or 40 minutes before it actually happened so you would have to be Mr MaGoo not to realise what was going on (and this is from somebody who did not see the ending of Sixth Sense coming).
The worst thing though was the directing. The camera focused on all the wrong things at all the wrong times totally destroying any attempt at tension that could feasibly have been wrought out of a scene.
The whole thing from script, acting and directing looked and played out like it was a 14 year old drama students first attempt at making a film with all his/her mates playing the roles. You get the odd OK actor but the rest of em are just terrible.
