This showed a lot of promise as it has a cast full of familiar teen faces including Charlie Weber (Buffy) Kerri Lynn Pratt (Cruel Intentions 2) Adria Dawn (Popular) Josh Hammond (Jeepers Creepers 2) Lauren German (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and 'The Dentist' himself Corbin Bernsen.

Unfortunately, I watched this back to back with 'Slash' and the first off-putting feature was the inclusion of Craig Kirkwood who played 'Token Black Guy' in 'Slash' and had annoyed the hell out of me! (I must say he was fine here though so he must be a hell of an actor because his character irritated me in 'Slash').

The second set-back was that the writer had tried too hard to make generic material different, and therefore we are treated to a silly romp about some gimpy goth pretentious mama's boy, who kills people with crows and ravens and all things supernatural?? I know....it was hard to decipher the storyline from the drivel contained within.

The quality is poor (even for a film shot on digital video) as is the pacing, acting and plot. It's maybe just me, but when an editor can't even be bothered to make the sound play in sync with the vision, I just can't seem to care! If it was just a faulty DVD I apologise...but you really should sort it out!!

OVERALL SUMMARY
A promising film with arguably one of the best cast lists in recent years is ruined by a hokey plot. However, the music is very good, especially the tune played over the end credits!
