Fair suspense
8 September 2019 | by cbritesSee all my reviews

Young Man takes a class of gifted teenagers in an elite school after their former teacher tries suicide. He soon finds out that a group of them is engaged in strange and dangerous activities, and starts to investigate.

Good level of suspense is kept throughout the movie until its conclusion, with good direction and acting. The kid's motivations and goals become very clear at the end, so this is NOT an open ending movie (I figured it out before the third act). The script is not without it's plot holes, though, the main one being the teacher never even trying to contact the kids' parents.
