"I watched this movie about five times. It just kept getting more hilarious. Let's go through its high points shall we?
I'm not even going to go into the plot, the acting, or the screenplay because it still hurts to think about. The character developement was pure genius, though! Throughout the movie, the main character, Reese, gets better and better at jumping into his friend's convertible. Every female character, including the math teacher, gets sluttier and sluttier. Reese's hair also gets greasier and greasier. Brilliant!
Now some funny things start to happen in this movie. Did the crew want to play a joke on us, or were they just smoking something? Right after the kids get their powers...from a glowing rock of some sort...we start to see flashlights. It's only subtle at first, but later it looks like there's kids behind the camera just going CRAZY with flashlights. It starts to hurt your head a bit. But THEN the camera starts swaying back and forth as if it were hung from the ceiling of a rocky cruise ship. You start feeling nauseous...but then, to keep you hooked on the movie, there is AN ENORMOUS, RANDOM CROTCH SHOT with a "whoooooo weeeeeee" sound effect behind it. Speaking of sound, there is ONE SONG that plays throughout the whole movie, like some Marilyn Manson song but they couldn't afford Marilyn Manson so they made up their own song and just played it over and over and over...
Overall, I loved this movie. Three very mutated thumbs up."
Good movie but lame special effects.

"The flick itself centers around 4 teens at Mar Vista High School. They are outcasts & misfits who find a mysterious stone that gives them magical powers & an evil personna.
Reese, (Anders) is a new student who moves to the school, gets bullied around a bit, then meets the other 3. They go to the woods on a trip together, find the stone laying out in the open, after holding it they each are given special powers. You can see a light in their eyes, a different colored light for each one, then they are transformed into evil personnas.
They go back to school, show off their new personnas, where they do stuff previously they were not capable of. But decide to ditch the stone after a friend of theirs is hurt because of its effect on them.
The music is good, but pretty basic. The camerawork is good, but nothing special. The special effects are lame, you can see how cheaply done this movie is by the lights in their eyes looking like flashlights with colored bulbs, & the light over one of the guys who floats in the air is obviously done by a flashlight. The acting is good enough though to make the movie be very enjoyable. I loved it a lot when I viewed it, but the special effects just keep it as an average b movie."
Do they make C movies?

"Made for teenagers, I wondered at times if it was made by teenagers too. I did enjoy it though (for some reason I can't fully explain). The actors were solid. Story? Eh, I've seen better in worse movies. High School girls perhaps? yeah, they're cute too, but I think there's a darkness to it that people liked. If it were on cable, and your a male between 12 and 25, you'd probably leave it on. All in all, it doesn't have alot of substance but was entertaining. Glad I rented."
Bad. So Very Bad.

"This movie has awesome cover art. That is about it. The catering on the set may have been good too(unconfirmed) but nothing in the film was good. The story was weak. The actors were weak. They tried to make the main character look just like Brandon Lee in The Crow. The background music songs were cheesy knock-offs meant to sound like popular songs. For the most part I laughed at it. Bad. So very bad."
