THE PLOT:

The story of a group of friends go to a remote island to celebrate April Fool's day but everything it's not what it appears to be. One of among them is a crazed serial killer stalking them one by one and anyone can be next.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Okay, this has got to be a unique twist on the slasher genre, all the elements are there, but without giving it away, there is an unknown and unexpected twist that I didn't even see coming. All the clues are there if you follow them, but if you don't follow them and only see what you want to see, then you will be shocked and surprised as I was. 9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd, normally I see these "twists" early in the movie but I got to admit even I was surprised by the outcome of this movie. There are some minor character issues and some minor plot issues but the effects are amazing and I can see why ZEDD recommended this as a buried treasure. 9 STARS as well.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ STORY (The story is basic but it works.)
+ TWIST (A twist neither of us saw coming.)
+ EFFECTS (Killer effects.)
+ UNIQUE (With the twists in it, that makes it totally unique among the genre.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- CHARACTER ISSUES (Minor character issues.)
- STORY (Minor story issues.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you aren't big on slasher movies, then it isn't for you.)
