Written and directed by Darren Stein.

Criminally underrated at Rotten Tomatoes.


box was kind enough to support MeFi with a donation. Their request was for six films about high school or college. That was too easy, so I limited myself to high school. I'll be using the tag #EnduringHighSchool

Donate $25 or more to MeFi and you can MeMail me a request for a themed day of your own. I'll fill up the sidebar on FF with six movies that fit your theme.

The accidental murder scene is about the only part of this I’ve seen, as something about it was so affecting that I noped out right there, and I’m not particularly squeamish.

I choked on a couple tootsie pop drops as a kid, though, so maybe that is in my lizard brain.

Looks, um, a little Heathers-ish.
