In a sleepy and uneventful small town, three college students, bored and desperate to make their mark, plot a savage and merciless murder. Electing to keep a video journal to memorialize their bizarre pact, they plot in secret, devising a homemade death chamber that will allow them to see, hear, feel, and linger over their intended victim's torment and final moments of life. Then, chosen at random, a fellow student becomes this victim when she is to receive perhaps the most brutal and horrifying of all fates. The default leader of this macabre trio directs the physical and psychological terror, even as contention and hostility within the group threatens to jeopardize their twisted plan, culminating in a violent and chilling conclusion.Written by
I give credit to the filmmakers for making something of what looks like nearly a ZERO budget. 3 teens in a cow-crap kicking town are bored, and decide to "kill" someone. The film is an A-Z step-by-step process from the time they decide to kill someone (out of boredom for the most part) to the deed itself. I give props to the film for its creativity and covering ground that hasn't been touched on a lot, my only complaint is the movie can get a bit BORING at times. And other then the cameraman, the teens are genuinely UNLIKEABLE (probably the filmmaker's intent, but I haven't wanted to SMACK someone through the screen as much as the wannabe-killer blond chick).
I wouldn't label this film a "horror" movie, more of a suspenseful "mockumentary" slightly in the vain of The Blair Witch Project without dripping boogers & silly stickmen. The movie slows to a crawl at times, but its worth a watch. Just don't go in expecting a run-of-the-mill slasher flick or buckets of gore.
