| nice try for a second movie but fails in some ways
It was Martin Schmidt's second attempt to make a flick that would put him on the map. Sadly it failed a bit due I think that there wasn't really a budget. There aren't any effects used except for the slicing of one throat. Don't worry, there are more people dying but it isn't bloody or really gory. The killer itself do bleeds at the end but it's one of the easiest tricks to do. The story itself is okay and he even tries to mislead you by showing some weirdo who the viewer will think that he is the killer. The problem I had was that some scene's are way too long. For example, when one survivor is being hunted down by the killer it goes on and on, they are trying to put in some jump scene's but for me it was more of a bore scene. There had to be more killings or whatsoever to make it suspenseful. But again, it's made 16 years ago and there wasn't really a hype surrounding internet. Look what they did afterwards, pinhead in cyberspace or other flicks about deadly games (feardotcom). It surely isn't a whodunit but it's easy to see that it could just be a leaving examination made for some art school.
