A small-town sheriff, Brent Marken (Michael Biehn), discovers the presence of a serial killer in his sleepy hamlet. Since the perpetrator has been targeting only virgins, both male and female, the deaths cause panic in much of the local high school population. Sheriff Marken's daughter, Jody (Brittany Murphy), is among the potential victims, since she has yet to sleep with her boyfriend, Kenny Ascott (Gabriel Mann). Can the lawman stop the killer before he goes after Jody?

    It is great to see Brittany Murphy, she is a true sex icon in my opinion. However, the film just fails for many reasons. It follows the formula of slasher films, apart from the quirky idea that the killers is going after virgins instead of the other way around. However, that fact is not really used to its maximum potential. The worst thing about the film is, that you can tell who the murderer is by looking at the casting list, go ahead, try it, .... see ... it works, it is super obvious and that makes the whole tension disappear from the get go.

    I enjoyed this film considering all the scream clones for its era

    Well, it's a step up from my last one, but it really doesn't reach the level of scream or Black Christmas or anything like that. Acting: They have some decent actors in here. I am always a fan of Michael Biehn after Terminator and Aliens. The late-who-knows-if-she-could-have-been-really-great Brittany Murphy is in here too. The acting is not too horrible. At the very least, it goes beyond the typical "I'm gonna scream and wait for the rapidly approaching killer to get me" stuff. It's always nice to have a break from that. The teenagers in this one have a little personality to them and some of them you actually grow to like. That is rare for a film like this. it wasn't too horrible. It wasn't fantastic either but it was alright. 6.5/10 Plot: Now, this is one of the most original plots I have seen out of a slasher film. I know, there is still the underlying "killer kills everyone he/she/it gets his/her/its hands on" thing but the film doesn't rely solely on that like films such as Halloween 2. Granted, it was a plot that, in its very basic form, was going to be done sooner or later but it is still an original one. Glad another original plot exists to be honest. It wasn't perfect but it was decent. 7/10 Screenplay: Not too good. As with most films it is the weakest aspect of the film. But I suppose that it was alright. There were some good lines there were some bad ones. nothing that's going to make you cringe or that you're going to include on a list of top 100 movie quotes but eeh. whatever. 6/10 Likableness: I kinda liked it. It was an entertaining way to spend 1 1/2 hours or so. It wasn't a perfect film but it is better than the average piece of slasher film trash. 7.5/10 Final Score: 27/40 67% (D) TRIVIA TIME: 1. Stephen Lang was originally offered the role of Sheriff Marken, but scheduling conflicts prevented him from being in the film. He later admitted that the only reason he wanted to do the part was to work with Brittany Murphy again. Ted Levine was also considered for the role of the Sheriff as well. The role eventually went to Michael Biehn. Ironically, Biehn was an early favorite for a military role in James Cameron's Avatar, but Lang ended up getting the part 2. The film was troubled by censor disapproval. It had to be submitted to the MPAA a total of five times before censors finally approved a cut.

    Not bad for a post-Scream slasher with solid performaces through-out, a decent premise and just the right amount of humor. My biggest complaint is the lack of on-screen violence. Sure there's some slices and dices here and there but for the most part it plays it too safe.
