Performers, Cast and Crew:
Movieline's Hollywood Life - 01/01/2006
"[A]n engagingly mordant and clever addition to what must by now qualify as its own sub-genre."
Total Film - 06/01/2006
3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t is witty and subversive, with flashes of magical realism and apocalyptic CG that both provokes and unnerves."
Sight and Sound - 07/01/2007
"There's some sharp scripting, with strong performances from Jamie Bell, Ralph Fiennes and Carrie-Anne Moss. And Stanford and Posin have chosen themes with real cinematic mileage."
Ultimate DVD - 10/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] dark humour, moving drama and eerie atmosphere....This is a brave and bold debut."
In this darkly humorous parody of high school life in suburbia--other teen films of this genre are DONNIE DARKO and HEATHERS--Dean (Jamie Bell) is beside himself when two of his best friends wind up dead--and nobody in the selfishly aloof world around him seems to notice, or care.
