I saw this movie just recently and I find it terrible. Not really a good watch.
It’s a movie directed by Christian E. Christiansen, starring Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl), Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights) and Aly Michalka (Hellcats.) Set in the University of Los Angeles, Sara (Kelly) meets her roommate, Rebecca (Meester) who was nice, sweet and willing to share everything with her. Until her friend Tracy (Michalka) first tasted Rebecca’s insanity, sge got convinced that something is really wrong with her. Sara eventually finds out Rebecca has an obsession with her, an obsession that quickly turned violent.
Okay, so…wow. This movie is bad. The writing is terrible and the acting is not much better than terrible. If you took any kid in school sat them down and told them to write a scary horror movie that is set on a university/college campus this is pretty much what they would come up with exactly. It is very predictable and you can see the attacks coming a mile away. Basically without ruining any of it I can say this is a girl who is obviously stuck with a roommate in college who she does not know but the chick turns out to be completely insane and tries to take over and keeps attacking and scaring her to death, almost literally to death. The movie is so stupid you will laugh at different places but it is not meant to be at all funny so this is just a terrible movie.
And wait, Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester look alike! But what’s up with Minka’s chin, really?
