Plot: When the troubled Owen joins the private Westlake Preparatory Academy, he meets the senior student Dodger, who invites him to participate of a game of lies with her friends. The objective of the lying game is to avoid suspicious, manipulate the friends and eliminate the enemies. The group decides to play a prank in all the mates of the high school, using a recent unsolved murder of a student in the campus. They send e-mails to all colleagues describing fake crimes with the same characteristics of the young woman committed by a serial killer called "The Wolf". Their teacher Rich Walker advises Owen how serious this joke could be. When the students of their group start to disappear, Owen, Dodger and Tom realize that the criminal became real.

My rating: 4/10

Will I watch it again? No.

Is it me or did this movie have it's head snugly up its own ass, trying to be as confusing as possible?  
 The rules seemed to change as needed with characters saying shit to confuse the other characters.  There's so much deceit going on I felt like I was the one they played the joke on.  I'm not trying to be mean, I tried to like this picture but it kept going and going and going, well beyond my desire to care.
Halfway through it seemed like it was close to wrapping up.  I checked the time and I still had another 45 minutes to go.  Those are painful times, dude.  Give me some kills, sex, show someone move or something.  Ugh.
