This movie had a certain stink to it, like all the characters sucked but i've never really thought that CGI added much to a horror movie before, apart from now ! is there a specific genre for late 90s/millennial futuristic body/mutant/ horror? apart from like... eXistenZ? Cos i wanna know the name of it and i want it to be my life. Also Josh Harnett was hot and it was a shame Clea Duvall wasn't a lesbian.
I will argue any day that this is Robert Rodruigez's best film to date. A low key classic from the 90's Dimension Films catalog featuring an eclectic mix of on the rise teen stars, horror veterans and comic actors. A total blast that's "guaranteed to jack you up."
The ending--with the goth girl dressed like a prep, the rebel on the football team, and the geek dating the sexy school newspaper girl all while an upbeat 90s tune plays telling us everything's happy now--is either infuriatingly shallow, or, considering the central theme of conformity, an excellent and true horror movie ending.
