This classic teen scream hosts an ensemble cast of ridiculously good looking kids and is spiced with an outlandish teacher (Jennifer Tilly) obsessed with getting famous by sleeping with a student and an over-protective father (Judd Nelson). Jonathan Breck (Jeepers Creepers) gives a delightfully creepy performance as the crazy Limo Driver and Jim Lang (John Carpenter’s Mouth of Madness, Body Bags) delivers an original score sure to make you jump out of your seat.
Most teen slasher films need just three elements to make them interesting. First, create an intriguing and frightening back story that will allow viewers to understand why the bad guy kills. Second find a good looking cast and convince several of the women to take off their tops and scream... a lot. Third, mix together good visuals with a quality soundtrack and throw in a couple of surprises. Writer Jackie Linder Olson and director Bryce Fridrik Olson obviously know how to make a teen slasher film. -- BeyondHollywood.com, February 3rd, 2008

I'm a big Jennifer Tilly fan and think she's a comedic genius. As always, she delivers with her quick wit and a purring feline voice. When Miss T. arrives, she brings loads of enjoyment, but she's not the star - she's in about 30 minutes of the film. Her character is completely off her rocker (and a rip on Mary Kay Letourneau, the teacher that married her student she had sex with when he was 12 years old).
Attractive actors all around. It's laced with teen issues and dialogue and a crazy authoritative figure. I would have liked to have seen some romance (there was none). The kids are likeable and out to have some harmless fun, but it wouldn't be a scream fest if they all made it back to the dance without meeting an untimely death.
I liked the backstory on `The Caretaker' and how everything comes full circle. He's kind of a serial killer with a big heart. Too big of a heart actually.
And who knew saline implants light up? I learned something new from this film (and my husband hit rewind three times). That and what a fruit picker is. It's a metal device used to pick the fruit in trees that you can't reach. Only this guy's is whacked out and used to murder loitering teens.
It made for a fun, eat popcorn and yell at the screen kind of night.
