release year: 2005
viewing setting: home DVD, 8/28/07
synopsis: A group of bored prep-school students invents a serial killer and spreads his legend using the internet...and then he comes to get them.
impressions: This was a pretty good thriller that kept me guessing. It's got some plot twists and a lot of accusations and blame, so the viewer is constantly trying to figure out who the killer is and what's going on. Two annoying factors: the heavy use of the internet, and the prankster nature of the main female character.x
something this movie has that no other movie has: A murderer who uses IM.
acting: Julian Morris is Owen, the new kid who is the story's lead character. Lindy Booth is the mischievous head of the little clique of friends. Jon Bon Jovi is a teacher at the school.
final word: Entertaining, and sometimes downright spooky.
