I'm no professional, but if you're going to make a sci-fi/thriller, you may want to incorporate something a little more exciting than electricity issues into the first half hour of the film. Seriously, that's it - a house party of overused teenager stereotypes and any excuse to show boobs, with a few seconds of sparking electric posts.
