THE PLOT:

During Christmas break a handful of Sorority Sisters are terrorized by unknown phone calls that are coming from withing the house.

The killer is stalking them one by one and the Police are powerless and clueless to stop him.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

This is a real let down, the movie goes on and on. But it really doesn't say much. It does have a good cast and that helps. But it makes you wonder what the hell were they think when they agreed to star in this snooze. It's long, it's boring, we never learn the identity of the killer or his motive. Near the end of the movie, the guy who was nothing but a Saint is killed and takes the fall for the killings, but the real killer is still lurking about the house and they never found the one girl who was killed with the plastic bag who still sits in the attic. Good thing the Police did such a intense search of the house. This is a stupid bad ending, I just pray the remake fixes the stupid ending of this crapper and I hope the stars remove it from their resume. I give it the LUMP OF COAL.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I couldn't agree more about this God awful pile of puke, this is one time a lump of coal isn't bad enough. I would love to give the writer ro director or whoever screwed this movie up a real lump on the head. I too give it this crapper the LUMP OF COAL.

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- KILLER IDENTIY (They never revealed the real killer.)
- NO SEARCH (They didn't bother to search the house.)

...AND FINALLY...

- KILLER ESCAPES (The killer escapes for another movie that will never come.)
