One of Them, Indeed

"When they came up with the title, if the filmmakers meant the seemingly endless stock of poor genre films that are being pumped out in the wake of digital film-making, then this is indeed "one of them". This cheap, irritating and boring "horror" film tries to be a combination of Final Destination and the Skulls.
Viewers are treated to horrible lighting and dismal video quality. The plot, such as it is, concerns a bunch of teenagers who are being hunted by other dead teenagers. I wish I could be more specific, but the story was so confusing and badly written that I am hard pressed to tell you what this movie was about. I just wish that I had bypassed this one altogether.
ONE OF THEM FILMS THAT'S AS BAD AS YOU'D THINK

"Here we go again: five young college students (although one's only 14, so it's really only 4 I guess) stumble into a mysterious academy that the viewer knows is not what it seems. With a script that seems written by a high school creative writer and a cast of unknowns who will probably stay unknown, ONE OF THEM manages to be boring, derivative and as chilling as a can of sardines. While trying to use gore as a diversion, the movie fails to generate any scares and one has to wonder why any studio would finance it. Pity that the late Richard Crenna's son had to get involved. With his rugged good looks and a smidgeon of talent, he deserves better."
Had it's moments.

"This is sort of between a two and a three, though closer to two. Lame-ish story, dud-head townspeople, bad-acting uncle (among other bad acting moments). Still, it had a couple of Fango-moments (not to mention a Fango panel that could have used sound enhancement). I think it was worth the rental fee, but I wouldn't buy it.
The teens crash because of a mysterious plague of locusts (or maybe it's moths) during a night-time drive. Instead of raising the windows, they crash and hence come to the Marques school, which has one groundskeeper and a lot of lawn to mow, all things considered. They are told it's too far to drive them to the hospital, over 20 miles I think, but nobody really makes the connection when the groundskeeper can walk it to get auto parts.
The assistant headmistress was totally unbelievable, but her false smile reminded me of a school guidance counselor or family psychologist.
The end was seriously hokey and had me laughing out loud for the goofiness of it. Predictable, but hey, a laugh's a laugh.
I upped the star content because there's a pretty nice piece of eye candy (Richard Crenna's son) and because it had me screaming in gross-out at what they do to one of his body parts.
I don't like slasher films and don't knowningly venture into that genre. I am totally bored with the whole concept of Let's Kill All The Teenagers. So I am sure there are movies out there with more realistic stabbings, slashings and dismemberments. I haven't seen them so I can't compare.
I did kind of like the implication that the school was a fortress from the time of the Conquistadores. A little different from your basic 'Based On English Gothic' style house.
Don't expect fine art, but it's worth a bowl of popcorn."

"Outstanding overall performances. Actor Chase Carpenter really shines in this one. He was definitely snubbed by the 2004 academy, and at least deserved an oscar nomination for an actor in a suporting role. For more of Carpenter's work, see The Ghost Club and The Last Summer, both tremendous efforts by this up-and-coming actor."
