The late ’70s high school slasher movie gets a Facebook-era makeover in this sporadically gruesome but non-frightening British horror comedy. Just as squeaky-clean head girl Justine (Tuppence Middleton) gains entry to the ruling ‘In Crowd’ clique, it tears itself apart.

These arrogant, good-looking boys and girls were the chief persecutors of lardy, asthmatic suicide Darren Mullet (Calvin Dean), and now they’re receiving text messages from beyond the grave. But these supernatural SMS threats are only a precursor to old-fangled mayhem. Very soon they are being impaled on a wooden cross, castrated with a broken bottle, decapitated with a spade or having an eyeball towel-whipped out of its socket – by Darren’s oddly zombie-like ghost.

Scriptwriter Stephen Prentice and director Jon Wright, who wrote Hammer’s online horror movie ‘Beyond the Rave’, have their finger on the teen pulse. Sadly, their solid storytelling, attractive cast and modish updates are let down by a lack of scares and jokes. IMHO not gr8, don’t xpkt to LOL.

The plot was stupid and the horror was lame. There was no remote explanation about the zombie/ghost. but Alex Pettyfer was in it and he was SO hot. The play the role of popular bad boy who everyone listens to better than ever. I didn't know he could act like this! He made the movie watchable but unless you are a big fan of him, don't watch the movie. Its a waste of your time.

Am I honestly supposed to feel sorry for this bullied kid? And is it supposed to be totally devoid of fear and humour? Avoid if you want an ACTUAL horror comedy. Total rubbish.

....

not a horror film! the guy wasnt scary but the deaths were hilarious if you want a laugh the end was so pointless and disappointing quite entertaining in parts

critique

Pointless rubbish which should have gone straight to tv. Don`t bother if you`re over 18.

I enjoyed this film a lot. The cast was great, the acting was good and i laughed a lot during it. The ending was unpredictably but fun to watch. Great for how low the budget was. I would definately recommend it.

Simply, the worst movie i have ever seen. It made no sence, no plot twists, obvious parts, i nearly fell asleep! don't go to see it, you will be disapointed. Better to watch paint dry on the walls!

Saw the movie last weekend. It was the most boring movie I have ever seen. Furthermore most "horror" scenes were so badly made but a few stood out and were so bad that it was actually quiet funny. Will not see it again, Was a wast of money and time

The Dude

This film shows us the extreme stereotypes of society in a way that is clearly influenced by the skins and facebook generation. If i wanted to explain the film in just a few words i would say "So bad that it was good".
