Film contains many teen slasher tropes but transcends them with an inventive script & dark humour.

Eventually she enlists his help in an attempt to identify her murderer. Many red herrings are caught.
While this film contains many of the teen slasher tropes it transcends them with an inventive script and wonderful dark humour. 8/10.
