A zombie apocalypse threatens the sleepy town of Little Haven - at Christmas - forcing Anna and her friends to fight, slash and sing their way to survival, facing the undead in a desperate race to reach their loved ones. But they soon discover that no one is safe in this new world, and with civilization falling apart around them, the only people they can truly rely on are each other.
Two upper-class teenage girls in suburban Connecticut rekindle their unlikely friendship after years of growing apart. Together, they hatch a plan to solve both of their problems-no matter what the cost.
On the eve of their high school graduation, two academic superstars and best friends realize they should have worked less and played more. Determined not to fall short of their peers, the girls try to cram four years of fun into one night.

An Awful Bore
Tries way to hard to be edgy and poignant with the incessant hypersexualization and teen dream drama that completely dominates the 1st half, but it's all just numbingly dull. The characters are neither exciting nor memorable, and while some have a few ideological points to make, none of them actually make you care. Except for Joel McHale, who is all-around awesome :).
The story itself doesn't do them any favors, either. The leaps in mob paranoia and violence make no sense, and though one can argue such things aren't rational in the first place, in here they really make no sense. Especially when it comes to the heroines being blamed and targeted for everything, despite no reasonable inklings or motives as to how they could be responsible for anything. And the ending is as dumb as can be.
Don't be fooled by the film being billed as a cross between "Heathers" and "The Purge" since it shares practically nothing with the two. Don't get intrigued by the trailers (which, I'll admit, are good). Don't waste your time and money on this.
