In order to avoid a ghostly figure in the road, high school senior Brent Mitchell wraps his car around a tree, killing his father. Constantly confronted by his mother's emotional collapse after the accident, Brent escapes into a marijuana fueled world of loud metal music to block the pain and guilt. Dejected and out of sorts, he has a shot at happiness with his girlfriend Holly, a grounded, caring girl with drop dead good looks, a dream date for the high school prom. But his plans are thwarted by a disturbing series of events that take place under a mirrored disco ball, involving pink satin, glitter, syringes, nails, power drills and a secret admirer. Brent has become the prom king at a macabre, sadistic event where he is the entertainment.Written by
On Brent's locker, and the locker next to it, one can briefly spot the code B6 on his and B3 on the other one if looking closely. These are vitamins that form red blood cells, foreshadowing that Brent is going to suffer a lot of blood loss. See more »

Have you got any more of that pot on you?
Yeah, in my pocket. That's why your dog was sniffing my nuts.
No need to explain.
Oh yeah, I just uh- I just didn't want you to think I have a hygiene problem.
Why? You're expecting me to suck your cock?

Aussies deliver the arterial blood-splatters we needed like a hole in our head...
There may be nothing new under the sun, and there is certainly nothing new on celluloid, but this digital-age flick sure can jump-start a tired old corpse. This one is a creeper, in every sense of the word. It starts slow, but adds speed as it navigates a wasteland littered with slasher-stereotype roadkill, delivering fresh nuances and jolts to the hostage splatterfest subgenre. Managing to be charmingly outback Aussie, yet simultaneously brutally classic Texan Chainsaw/Hills Have Eyes, this may-well be a modern classic. Engrossingly gross, and satisfyingly slick, with crunchy bits.
