Unfortunately he obviously had not made his mark on the establishment yet and lacked the confidence to make this film his own; as a result it comes across as a very generic teen horror movie. It's not quite funny enough to be a comedy, nor scary enough to be horror, so it falls a little between two stools. The young cast are all decent (apart from Josh Hartnett's BIZARRE hairstyle!) and Robert Patrick is very good at the ordinary guy with an underlying sense of menace. Fans of Buffy will enjoy it as it's basically just like a feature length episode of the series; …
