A decent horror pic starring a post-Goonies, post-Blown Away, post-career Corey Feldman might sound like one of the signs of the Apocalypse, but here it is.

Corey (Would you girls stop screaming, please!) plays a recently transferred student who refuses to pledge to the local jock fraternity, instead hanging out with a bunch of nutters led by Joel J. Edwards. Feldman's girlfriend Diana Nadeau doesn't seem all that happy that her boyfriend now attends the same college, but she's even less thrilled about Corey joining this new fraternity. There's just something not quite right about these people... (I'm being vague, but it's one of those films you just don't want spoiled) Look out for Sarah Douglas from 'Superman' and 'Eraserhead' star Jack Nance in a crucial supporting role.

The film does not fare well to close scrutiny (So Corey doesn't want to suffer a jock initiation of eating animal parts, but he's not opposed to hazing as a whole? And just WHY was Nadeau so underwhelmed by her boyfriend's surprise arrival?) but for 90 minutes or so, it entertained me. It's also rather moody, the film has an interestingly sombre tone. It also does a great job of casting suspicion on anyone, I'm sure everyone can guess what the film is about ( the title) but just who is in on things?

Also helpful is some of the casting; Douglas is thoroughly wasted as a lecturer, but her very inclusion in the cast already conjures up an air of distrust. Towering over all, though, is Nance in a decidedly Dennis Hopper meets Brad Dourif part. He absolutely goes to town here as a constantly and incoherently babbling weirdo who keeps popping up and surely has at least some connection to things. The music score by Keith Bilderbeck is cheap, weird, but effective.

One Final Note: The film may be hard to find and indeed hard for some to watch as it features a school shoot-out scene.

If you can get your hands on this straight-to-video flick, you might be pleasantly surprised. Unambitious but well-done on a low-budget and quite entertaining.
