CHERRY FALLS

SYNOPSIS:
Cherry Falls high school students fall victim to a serial killer; after the third fatality, the pattern is clear. The killer targets virgins. Jody (Brittany Murphy) is the Sheriff’s daughter, but that turns out to be no protection at all.

"Australia’s Geoffrey Wright (Romper Stomper, Metal Skin) shows his natural filmic talent with this genre piece, a skilful visit to the teen slasher farm with excellent technical credits and solid pacing. The film relies on the pattern of its genre, and the script is so-so, but Wright pushes its edginess for a more intense experience. Although it has been thrown onto video shelves without a theatrical release, it is at least as worthy of wide release as its stablemates. Performances are above average, and actors of Jay Mohr’s calibre don’t work with B grade directors – even in B grade films. So worth a hire for the night – bundle it with Bundy & coke, a pizza and turn up the volume."
