Audience Reviews for Disturbing Behavior

Nothing more than a guilty pleasure. Plus James Marsden was so hot at 22.

One of the many teen horror movies to come out after the popularity of Scream. It was ok but nothing memorable.

This is a cool teen thriller. Suprised it's not more well know as I only saw it through a recommendation. It's good fun if predictable. Very similar to The Faculty and with a strong cast.
