Did You Know?


John Berardo directed the climax of the film like a play, requiring the cast to perform the entire sequence for each set up. He felt this would get the performances needed from the actors in the short amount of time they had to shoot it. See more »

User Reviews

it start so cheesy...
9 May 2021 | by ops-52535See all my reviews

And i guess 50 percent of the viewers goes to bed or leaves the theater before the real show start.

Its a serial killer on the loose on the campus, and the murderer aspires to become an infamous spree killer of high level.

In away it reminds me of the start of assassination nation in the start, and the flashing social media messages flying over the screen ( with so small letters the grumpy old man barely could read, and flies and shifts so fast that a monotasker like me cant keep up the race), but that is just my resemblance note.

So well into the movie the film change caracter from partying frat houses into a high preassure murder hunt. There are also some raping and a well equiped dna sequencing laboratory at the site that play an important role...

i think this was a cool surprise in the latter end, pretty gory and powerful acts around the moments of no mercy and return.

The music made for the film is of high standard, and makes you heartbeat at the same rythm as the motions of the pictures, well done indeed. So i give this a 7 , do watch the whole film before reviewing i say, ill give my unproffesional grumpy recommendations to this one.
