College students Chris and Tim see no chance of getting into Harvard on academic ability alone. However, there is a sure-fire way of obtaining the grades they need by other means: if their room-mate Rand kills himself, they will automatically be given straight A's on compassionate grounds. The only problem is that Rand is in a distinctly non-suicidal frame of mind, which means that Chris and Tim are going to have to give him a helping hand.

The young cast, handsome and ebullient, do fine work here, particularly Lillard, who expands on his loony turn in Scream from two years earlier with much maniacal relish. The older actors however don't fair so well, courtesy of either being underwritten or merely for being plot fillers. But hey, if all lady psychologist's look like Dana Delaney then I'm going to sign myself up for a bit of therapy. Naturally with a premise like this it's far from perfect and the implausibility factors are high, but Rosen has a wry observation on American dorm life. Be it the pressures of success or the need to be part of a group, Rosen and his on form cast have created a darkly comic piece of devilment. The soundtrack is excellent, and for sure it's laden with misery from the likes of The Smiths and Bauhaus, while the Elk Neck Lighthouse location work evokes memories of tidy creepers from days of yore.
A fine story told and executed well, give it a go and you may just be as pleasantly surprised as I was. 7/10

Don't worry about having pity for the poor victim of this little scheme, for Rand (Randall Batinkoff) is inherently unlikable - he's a slick and spoiled child of great wealth who treats everyone around him like dirt, especially his mousy girlfriend Natalie (Tamara Craig Thomas). Despite this, his two roommates don't really hate him. Chris (Michael Vartan) is just desperate to get into Harvard grad school and Tim (Matthew Lillard) - well, Tim's just messed up in the head. You may remember Matthew Lillard from his role in Scream; he's playing the same kind of psychotic character here - only more psychotic and even more brutish and annoying. Chris is no genius, either, having believed that killing Rand and making it look like suicide would be a simple act to pull off. Serious repercussions - and major plot twists - follow in the wake of his and Tim's actions.
The Curve is an odd little film.Read more ›

decent film, if you love the 90's weird college vibe. It has creepy overprivileged teens doing what they want when they want and Matthew Lillard is great.Published 16 months ago by Sarah C.
A pretty standard set-up (murderers try to get away with their crime, fight amongst themselves), with nothing to make it stand out. Read morePublished on 23 Mar. 2014 by MR B
