Our Score
A cyber-prank goes horribly wrong for the pupils of a posh prep school in this all-stalk, no-slash faux horror. British student Julian Morris and class sexpot Lindy Booth send a group email crediting a local murder to a fictitious serial killer they call "the Wolf". But their fabrication becomes reality when a real ski-masked maniac starts roaming the campus. Ably co-written and stylishly directed by Jeff Wadlow, the film was the winner of the inaugural Chrysler Million Dollar Film Festival competition. It's a convoluted Agatha Christie-style whodunnit in the And Then There Were None vein, relying on practical jokes, red herrings, bogus bogeymen and false scares rather than anything of a gory nature. Mystery thriller lovers will be riveted by a fun and reasonably compelling storyline, and rocker Jon Bon Jovi puts in an appearance as a tweedy professor.

Summary

Students at an elite private school decide to invent lurid stories surrounding an imaginary serial killer when they get to hear of a woman's murder. However, their fabricated slayer inexplicably comes to life as a masked maniac, who begins to prowl the college campus and pick them off one by one. Horror, starring Lindy Booth, Julian Morris and Jared Padalecki.
