Sam Maddox, a troubled girl whose father committed suicide, has earned a reputation at her high school for being a bit promiscuous. When Sam begins seeing brilliant, MIT-bound Henry Sinclair, the two opposites really attract. Although Sam doesn't realize it, Henry is in the grip of an insane romantic obsession, and he will kill anyone who tries to put an end to his star-crossed - and increasingly deadly - romance.

Don't understand everyone's problem with this film?
6 December 2018 | by sam_j_keenanSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed it, I'm not gonna spoil anything but it seems a lot of these other reviews didn't seem to get what the film was about. There are a few things in this film that don't quite make sense but it's like that with any film, you're always gonna poke holes in films if you try to. It's a nice love story, with a dark undertone of what jealously and other people's influences can do to a relationship. Great acting and definitely worth a watch.
