!!!WARNING-MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!
Well twelve actually, thats the number of people that criminology student Nick(Rick Otto) has invited to a party at his Uncle Attacus's house. Its meant to be a party for his friend Jimmy(who happens to be the current boyfriend of Nick's ex), but the guest of honour is late,everybody gets more drunk and stoned as the night progresses and it soon becomes apparent that the only thing on Nick's mind is murder, as the guests start to dissapear one by one. He's also invited his tutor along to witness his physical dissertation, so can he commit the perfect crime(s) or is someone else one step ahead of him?
This is a clever modern update of Hitchcock's Rope, with Agatha Christie's Ten Little Indians thrown into the mix as well. Theres a parodic feel to the whole exercise as Nick talks his way through the murders, and it really is quite an inventive little thriller with a couple of nifty little twists and turns added for good measure.
Rick Otto is excellent as the cold, calculated Nick and Glen Quinn is an excellent foil as Nick's tutor Professor Evans. The rest of the cast are pretty good too, some of them playing rather shallow, unlikeable roles with aplomb.
So an excellent little thriller, with sparkling dialogue and a clever, twisty plot. Put R.S.V.P on your guest list right now, as it will liven your party up no end. 5 out of 5

I think the movie was great,I was really expecting to see some terrible film,but I was surprised by it,it was good. The cast was perfect,Glenn Quinn rocked,Jason Mewes was hilarious and so on. although it wasn't really a thriller ,I mean in the first 20 minutes you kinda know who the killer is and what he's planning to do. But I liked it alot.
