    I find no rhyme or reason for why this film has been produced/directed. From the trailer it was projected to be an edge of the seat psychopath thriller. I was hardly thrilled, except for when it was over. A hacked-to-death plot has been further destroyed by listless acting and a predictable screenplay. We have seen loads and loads of films with obsessive characters and this one is just another forgettable addition.

    The film tries quite hard to titillate by putting 2 hot girls sharing a hostel room. Everybody makes out with everybody else. The sexual orientation of all the girls in the film is in question: In one scene the protagonist is shown kissing a boy and in the next scene she gets the hots for a girl. Clearly all such scenes have been deliberately added to keep the audiences in the theatres.

    I also could not understand why Billy Zane, of all people has been casted as a fashion designer. The guy looks cunning and horny by default and there are no prizes for guessing that he will try to seduce his student.

    The flick talks about a young girl Sara Mathews who moves into her college hostel where she encounters an obsessive roommate. All of this was already evident from the trailer and there are simply no surprises to engage the audience in the film.

    A crappy film which is a complete waste of money. Please do not watch !
