DE­TEN­TION

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - EGuide Dvds -

Whoa, whoa, whoa, what? There’s a killer run­ning around a high school a la

Scream, a script full of hip­ster film and pop cul­ture ref­er­ences from the 1980s and 1990s, a ‘‘ what the’’ plot a la

Donnie Darko and it’s paced for those with the at­ten­tion span of a com­mer­cial or mu­sic video? Mr Di­rec­tor sir, you have lost me! An ex­haus­tive ef­fort and one ( MA) with­out a clear di­rec­tion, which bor­ders on be­ing ob­nox­ious for the most part. It’s too weird for its own good but cer­tain el­e­ments do work in iso­la­tion . . . just not as well as in­tended.
