Dorm dorm DORM!
15 November 2015 | by begobSee all my reviews

A mentally unwell student is accepted by her new dorm-mates, who transform her into a confident beauty with a mysteriously intoxicating tea. But she grows suspicious of their motives and begins to find hallucinatory evidence of something amiss.

Standard occult conspiracy horror that probably reveals its twist too early - if the emphasis on the missing student had been held back to the very end, when the protagonist has to confront her, and the confrontation had been more involved, it would have heightened the effect. And the end sequence didn't create much sense of loss. It's pretty well made by a director who seems to do mostly TV, but the sex 'n gore is tame and nobody's going to get extreme chills just from the plot, unlike say The Skeleton Key, which shares elements of the concept. Lead actress is impressive, and a striking beauty too, and the rest of the cast do fine.

Maybe the biggest problem with this is the music - it sometimes has an MTV feel, with one tense scene ruined as miserable strumming competes with the dialogue. And the sound effects are a bit hammy.

Overall, watchably average. And a short run time.
