[Highly rated reviewer]This dvd is superb. High School Student Donna Keppel (played by Brittany Snow) is in the car with her friend Lisa. They are driving home from the movies. When she goes into her house, she sees her dad and brother dead. She then runs, and hides under her bed in her room because she hears the killer. She witnesses her mother's murder by Richard Fenton (played by Johnathon Schaech), a teacher at her school who has become obsessed with her.
Three years later, Donna, is about to graduate and living with her aunt and uncle, is in therapy and taking pills, to deal with the trauma of losing her family and her persistent nightmares.
Donna, her boyfriend Bobby (played by Scott Porter), her friends Lisa (played by Dana Davis), Ronnie (played by Collins Pennie), Michael (played by Kelly Blatz) and Claire (played by Jessica Stroup) make plans to attend their senior prom together.
Meanwhile, Detective Winn, the police officer responsible for imprisoning Fenton, learns that Fenton has escaped three days before Donna's senior prom and decides to stake out Donna's prom.
At the prom, which is being held at the Pacific Grand Hotel, Donna and her friends get keys to a suite in the hotel.
Fenton is already at the prom.......... what happens next?.......watch the film to find out....

Night Night! Zzz...By Jim777 (16 reviews) , 26 Nov 2011Glossy but formulaic and dull. A lack of suspense or involvement stretches the film's running time to breaking point.
The characters are two dimensional: only the detective (Idris Elba) lends some gravitas to a script by numbers. The rest of the cast phone their performances through over a particularly bad line whilst the director waited for his cheque to clear.
I would like to give this no starsBy JoshBlack2 (1 review) , 24 Sep 2011I like the odd horror/slasher flick, as much because I like watching my sister hiding behind the sofa as for my own sake.
This was the most predictable, plotless and boring film I have ever seen.
Idris Elba, I used to respect you. What were you thinking?
Do yourself and your scare-easy loved ones a favour and rent something like The Orphan or Nightmare on Elm Street.

walked outBy andyhall1986 (35 reviews) from Stranabrosney , 30 Aug 2011the only reason this film is under horror is because the story and actting is so horrific. I saw this film whenever it came out in the cinema and its the only film is gone and seen and walked out beofre it ended. It so predictable and boring. I never got to see the end of it but im sure is the usual crap where the girl fights to end and ends up killing the bad-guy. The whole model and screenplay round this is just a copy of scream or any other teen horror film. Dont waste your time and money. You alreadi no the story so go and watch scream or halloween if you really want entertained
I'd rather eat my own feet than watch this again.By vanilla_quiff (284 reviews) from Gatwick, England , 13 Aug 2011Biggest load of BULL$HIT I've ever witnessed.
How DARE they even MAKE this BOLL0CKS ! I mean - what the hell ?
VERY misleading - the 'dark secret amongst a group of children' is actually 'dark secret of ONE GIRL' ...... The others have BUGGER ALL to do with it, the horror was crap, storyline ridiculous, and I'd rather eat my own feet than watch this again.
What a shame!By Littlerobinred (25 reviews) from York UK , 09 Mar 2011
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideThis, it has to be said, sums up the type of horror film I actually love. Yes I know I've only given it 1 and a half stars, but I just find it hilarious.
They had the perfect horror movie music, but then none of the scares. Everything that happened was obviously going to happen, and these girls were just down right stupid. If you've recognised a man, and you realise he's a killer, yes you would go and tell the person he's aiming to kill, but you'd also tell your boyfriend whom you're lying in bed with and not just jump up and run away. And if you proceed to not say a word to him and just run away, you would wait for the elevator and not run down a bunch of stairs when you're wearing incredibly inappropriate shoes. I understand that all this was done to 'create suspense' of some sort, but really it just made me sit and think how stupid they are.
And I don't know about you, but if I had just had a terrifying dream about turning the TV off, checking the window,going into the bathroom and looking in your bathroom cupboard, close it and get attacked. I would not then proceed to go and do each of these things. But maybe that's just me.
All in all I think Brittany Snow did a fairly decent job, Jessica Stroup wasn't really in it long enough for me to judge her acting in this but Dana Davis was not very good, there was no substance to her character and her ability to act surprised or shocked was (excuse the pun) shocking.
I apologise for being so harsh, because with all due respect, it was fun to watch!
