"Think of this as a final with only one question. What did I do to deserve this?"
This will not be a movie that ends well I am sure of that.
The story revolves around two groups of high school students. The repulsive 'in crowd' and the heavily abused 'outcasts'. Hell, I wanted to kill those popular kids myself (they are that loathsome) and was kinda happy there was a plan afoot to do a little payback. I couldn't wait long enough for it to happen. But that is just what a good little revenge thriller does, right?
All the years of abuse come to a head during a high school costume party. The outcasts have an elaborate plan to finally take revenge on their tormentors and to broadcast it over the Internet.
The sad part is that the 'outcasts' are not bad kids. They have just been pushed too far. They are smart and nerdy but have little support at home and no one but each other to support them. I am actually surprised that this kind of thing doesn't happen more often.
Bullying is something I never tolerated when I taught especially since way too often administration turned a blind eye to it so as not to rock the boat and have to deal with the parents.
The costume aspect is a nice twist. It gives a additional level of creepiness to the story.
I gotta admit that this one got to me. The characters are well drawn and well acted and the plot has alot of inventive twists to it. I can see it giving teens ideas that they don't need to be having. It is cathartic though.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
