(15+) US. Leighton Meester, Minka Kelly, Cam Gigandet
Freshman fashionista Sara Matthews (Kelly) gets the full college experience and then some in this enjoyably trashy thriller. Charming frat-house boyfriend (Gigandet)? Check. Professor (Billy Zane, bless him) with a come-hither libido? Check. Looney-tunes roommate (Meester) off her meds? Check. When fatally attracted Rebecca is around, no cute kitten is safe from coin-operated-dryer death. And hair-tearing catfights? Well, those are assured. It’s the stuff of a late-night channel-surfer’s dreams, surely on its way to an eternity of Showmovies air play.
