Obnoxious teens behave idiotically and make the stupidest decisions imaginable in this nonsensical "found footage" micro-budgeter that isn't remotely horrifying, just horrible. Twenty years after an understudy dies in a freak on-stage accident during a high-school play, three students sabotage a tribute revival of the cursed drama by trashing the set after hours. Finding themselves inexplicably locked in the auditorium, they soon realise they are in grave danger as the usual things go bump in the night and bland jump shocks and loud noise clichés get dragged into insipid service. Devoid of credibility, novelty or suspense, and populated with loathsome characters - especially motormouth smartphone camera operator Ryan Shoos - the aimless tedium never stops, regardless of the frantic scurrying about, night-vision episodes and overdone close-ups of crying. It's doubtful anyone will care come the "surprise" twist ending.


A high-school play ends in tragedy when a boy is accidentally killed during a performance. The school puts on another production of the same show 20 years later which a gang of camcorder-wielding students intend to sabotage - but nobody is prepared for the ghost of the dead boy returning to terrorise the performance. Found-footage horror, starring Reese Mishler and Pfeifer Brown.
