Storyline

Ambitious high school senior Samantha Hodges is a serious journalist, both for the school paper and for the yearbook, but she's just as serious about her friends, Nate, Gillian, and Rudy, all of whom are vying with her for a full-ride local scholarship to college. Very close to her mother, Emily, who is the school's guidance counselor, Samantha finds her reporting taking an investigative turn when two of her classmates--and contenders for the scholarship--are murdered.

In Hash Veritas?
7 April 2020 | by Angry_SantaSee all my reviews

Placing a hash at the head of the title in the hopes of attracting more viewers than would otherwise be stupid enough to sit through this is even worse than including the words "cheerleaders" or "spring break" in a title.

Pathetic script, pathetic acting, pathetic directing, pathetic production. The only possibly redeeming factor for this steaming pile might be if drama teachers decide to use it as a perfect example of how NOT to make a movie.
