In the fictional town of Grace Arbor the answers are never clear. Who is underneath the mask? PRANK'd is the story of a group of high school kids who amuse themselves by pulling pranks on unsuspecting students and teachers. They are all popular, good looking, the kids voted most likely to succeed. But at their core lies a cruelty and shallowness which comes with the territory of privilege. One night, a prank goes horribly wrong and a teenager is killed. The gang covers it up as a drowning accident but five years later, their lives are turned upside down when Jimmy Edwards, is killed by a serial killer wearing a haunting Marilyn Monroe mask. Soon, the gang are killed one by one in manners mirroring the pranks they pulled in high school. Is it revenge? Is it karma? Is it the dead boy's spirit coming back to avenge his death? Is it his twin brother, Liam, who has come to Grace Arbor asking questions? One thing is certain - No one is laughing now.

Solid Horror Film
I really enjoyed this film. In the day and age where every horror film consists of found footage with untalented actors, this was a breath of fresh air. It had a great running suspense throughout the whole film, the cast was great, and the story reminded me of classics like Scream, and I Know What You Did Last Summer. It was a really taut film that paid homage to great slasher flicks of the past, while not being cheesy or campy in any way. I would definitely recommend this film to any fellow horror fans out there! You will not be disappointed!
Finally, I think this film is topical as it deals with the subject of bullying. Once again, it does so in an intelligent manner not commonly found in most horror films.
