User Reviews

 
Creepy slasher

A group of college students closing down a school are attacked by an unknown person. Script, premise, acting; nothing praiseworthy, but the film itself has a creepy music score and ending. It remains exciting throughout and is better than a lot of other entry's in this genre. 7 out of 10.
