There's a lot going on in this movie as the A plot and the B plot collide near the end. It reminds me a little of Hell High in that the characters are either not sympathetic or so barely fleshed out it's difficult to have any feelings for them at all.

The curfew part of the plot is fairly gimmicky and quite unnecessary. The thing that probably entertained me the most was the bottle of Jean Nate on Stephanie's bureau.

While not currently available to stream, the blu ray is available for purchase at Vinegar Syndrome.
