Genre(s): Horror, Thriller
As the film opens you are thrown into a teenage boys dream. Young women having a pillow fight, bouncing on a trampoline in lingerie, drinking and debauchery everywhere you look. You have entered the most extreme sorority house on Earth, and it looks really fun. As always, something goes terribly wrong and all of a sudden a murderer is loose; with a “tricked” out tire iron and black hooded cape. This film does not simply focus on the killing of the sorority girls, it actually sets up a mystery to be solved. This makes the viewing of the film so much more enjoyable. Not only do you get the horror mainstay of killing people in inventive ways (and the killings in this film are very inventive) but you also have the chance to use your brain to try and figure out the who, what, and how of it all with the main characters. Be ready for suspense, a few shocks, and some very creative death scenes because who knew bubbles could be so frightening.
For a horror movie this film is incredibly well written. The level of maturity of the writing is shocking as the characters all come across as intelligent and well-rounded with very distinct personalities. The ridiculousness that is always possible in horror genre dialogue is nowhere to be found in the film. The screenplay manages to develop a decent story while providing plenty of thrills and suspense along with character development. One of the best things is it does not forget to give emotions and depth to the characters as they deal with their guilt and regret over their actions. This is a horror movie with a soul, making it surprisingly refreshing.
The movie is not all out scary. It is full of a load of suspense. You may know someone is about to die, given the camera angles and sound, yet your heart still races. Jumping out of your seat once is completely likely, twice is possible too. Overall its a great thriller, with just enough scares thrown in to satisfy the horror junkie inside you.
