I quite enjoyed this film - despite seeing a trailer for it that I thought revealed the storyline of the whole film. However, on watching it it soon became clear that this film was more than meets the eye. Although based on the average teen slasher plot, this film manages to step things up a gear - focusing not so much on the grisly murders but more on what is fact and what is fiction. The plot managed to keep twisting and you were constantly trying to work out what was really happening. If you are looking for a film that is a step up from the normal slasher then this could be for you.
Easy going murder mystery

I saw the previews to this film and thought it was worth a watch but have to say it could've been better. The plot was quite clever but it was just missing some oomph. I think what spoiled it for me was the flash forwards in time, showing you what was already going to happen in the rest of the movie, which made you wonder whats the point? Good idea, poor delivery.
