The overly familiar can make for an entertaining ride all the same with the right amount of slick style and intelligent inspiration.
It's an indifferent example of the familiar slasher horror stuff that won Jamie Lee Curtis the title "Scream Queen" in the 1970s and later reached its peak in Wes Craven's Scream tetralogy.
The problem lies with writer/director Arjun Rose, whose opportunism is matched only by his indifference to logic.
It's a bit like being in a room with a group of stoned people at a YouTube party, replaying the best bits of their favourite movies.
Neither homage or reinvention, A walking, talking cliché with little to say about truth or fiction.
Surprisingly, the actual 'horror' part is the let-down.
More interested in street cred than plot cred: never has a bunch of kids looked less likely to want to end it all.
Good to see the English having a go at a slasher film.....but why does it always have to be so low budget. Tulisa makes a 5min appearance, so not sure why on the cover of the DVD....bit of a marketing ploy there. Interesting take on the idea but the plot just twists in totally random directions at times. It was a nice surprise to see some of it filmed in and around Hammersmith in London where I used to live!
This is a pretty terrible movie and yet compelling to watch to the end!
Although an interesting concept and although intriged to see what is going on, when your eventually enlightened to the answer its a pretty poor ending and your left going 'what the hell, was that all about'!
I would normally refuse to recommend this movie, however with some of the characters they make the movie a bit like Alan Rickman in Robin Hood, so particularly for some of the humourous characters in the movie it is a little worth the watch!
