So. Yes. This.

I could give the movie poster a lie rating. I could explain the plot to you in some great detail. But actually, I just don’t feel like it that much, because this movie hasn’t earned my time to review it.

It is a mess. There is a simple plot hidden underneath the chaos of the script, and the characters, and the locations. Blond, blue eyed young man needs to defend his hysterical but sexy young woman from a non blond, non blue eyed, non normative young man who works at his father’s funeral home. It’s not actually a difficult plot, but somehow it nearly gets lost under the welter of trying to mash a high school romance into a suspense thriller into a murder mystery into a serial killer slasher flick.

There is just too much going on and frankly I’m not in the mood today.
