This movie is supposed to be a Slasher flick, I suppose, but in the end it's really no more than a mean-spirited remake of The Babysitters Club, except in this one, the babysitters are all socially retarded asshole kids who get stabbed to death at the end.
It also may be a live-action version of the game Candy Crush. And one of the worst movie that either Timothy Hutton or Chloe Sevigny have ever starred in.

|WILL SHE SURVIVE?|
I'll go ahead and give her credit for going for something that was completely out of the box with this movie, at least in a visual sense. It's definitely stylish, and it certainly plays by its own rules, for better or worse. I'll also give her credit for making a movie in which a bunch of younger kids get killed on-screen, because that's a tough thing to attempt, even in a satirical movie like this. If nothing else, this movie had balls.
|YEAH, SHE'S 12.|
And then we have the characters...
I can't remember the last time I saw a movie where I wanted all of its characters to die painfully from the get-go like I did with this one. The fact that most of the main characters are 12-years-old makes it even worse, because we're not usually interested in seeing a bunch of kids killed on screen, but the girls in this movie were so abhorrent and frustratingly aggravating, that their impending deaths were all we had to hang on to as the movie wore on.
|SO BRAVE. SO UNIQUE. SO PRETENTIOUS.|
And when the killing did start (in earnest at least), it was far too late to save things. At least the last 15-minutes or so were a bit more exciting than everything that came before it.
Lots of ideas look good on paper but just don't work in practice, and #Horror is surely an example of that.
|WE KNOW, KID. WE CRIED TOO.|
Some will dig it, but for most Horror fans in general, #Horror will feel like watching someone scratch their nails on a chalkboard for 90 minutes. #NoThankYou #RentSomethingElse
