Wonderfully Horrible
Verified purchase
Such a deliciously awful little movie. Acting is so-so, plot makes no sense whatsoever, and the "twist" is lackluster. My favorite parts of the movies are the montages -- and, oh, so many of them! You can almost hear the writers -- "I'm running out of ideas, and we can't kill off EVERYONE; let's just add another montage." They're incredibly long and are obviously there to take up as much space as possible.
If you're a fan of gore and terrible movies, don't pass this one up. It doesn't disappoint.

Don't read text

Very deadly game that someone has put onto your phone so everyone thinks it's a game of fun. Rules are for everyone and there is no turning back once you receive this text message also no changing your mind so lets continue with a few more clues, A group of six students get the message and most unravel the secret or die trying with the clock ticking they are racing against time. The torture begins when they fail to keep the chain letter going. How silly are they not doing as they were told. While they are trying to solve the mystery more challenges emerge making it harder so that the killer can continue his quest. So how many friends survive that is the question for you to find out. Fantastic acting with the storyline just as great, I rated this an A grade plus for the twist and turns that keep you tuned in right to the very end. Show is very different so it means that you'll have to go and collect this great movie to watch, now with no more clues, leaving you in mid air or out on a limb as the saying goes. I'm not spoiling the movie for you by saying to much. Popcorn time with show in hand sitting with feet up relaxing in your favourite chair, now for a night in with a fabulous movie that has thrills by the minute keeping you alert right to the end known as entertainment plus. Enjoy!

Ok, I'm not one to decry swearing, but these kids swear every other word. Can you not think of any better dialogue? No thanks.

Not Bad lol
Verified purchase
Have to give props to the special affects, and the murder styles. That being said, this is a teen horror film, so don't expect ANY good dialog. It's a decent mindless fun ride. It's one of those movies where everyone dies, but all the characters are silly so it's a good thing lol which makes it all the more necessary.

Glad this was free with Prime!

Acting wasn't bad, plot was okay but not plausible.
The last 20 minutes ruined it for me, I don't think they could figure out a suitable ending so they just through it together.

Wasted Potential
Verified purchase
Had some great actors - Keith David, Brad Dourif, Betsy Russell but Deon Taylor still managed to make this a meandering mess.

Poorly acted by the "kids" in the film and complete lack of depth, pacing that would put anyone to sleep, and a ridiculous "conclusion".

Setting up for a sequel? Please don't bother.

Better than expected....!

This movie surprisingly touched on the non-privacy issues of technology. It is filled with blood and gore which was not necessary. interesting movie.
