Review
Jamie Blanks - who didn’t exactly wow with his mediocre directorial debut, Urban Legend - here rummages through the horror cliché dustbin to produce an unoriginal chiller that’s not only low on scares, but also lacking in any characters you’d actually want to see survive. A group of girls humiliate a nerd at a school dance (didn’t they ever watch Carrie?), and 13 years later one of them is stabbed to death by a cupid mask-wearing stalker.


It seems the geeky boy selected psychopathic killer as his career of choice, although the girls who tormented him are naturally too dumb to figure out who he might have grown up to be. The essential daftness isn’t helped by the stars - including Angel and Buffy’s David Boreanaz - who play it straight when they should have gone for laughs.
