    With each death, the film becomes less interesting. By the end, it's just a routine slasher flick with a too-predictable final "twist." show more

    The film is competently made, and the attractive cast emotes and screams energetically. show more

    A premise so rock-solid, so guaranteed to please, that it almost doesn't matter that the movie is otherwise a routine slasher, and not a particularly scary one. show more
