Treacherous high school setting meets some dark Chinese magic in this made-for-teens affair.
Now Showing THERE’S an important lesson to be learned from the adage “be careful what you wish for”.
Dissect the premise about getting your wants satiated with little to no effort, and you will find that complacency and self-entitlement sets in. And we have seen the horrors of that in some social landscapes.
What better way to teach young folks that whole “work hard, don’t expect to be handed freebies” message than through the lens of a horror movie, right?
Director John R. Leonetti makes it clear, through the movie’s dance club-ready soundtrack to its Mean Girls-esque high school setting, that this film is meant for the Snapchat-savvy crowd.
