Synopsis

Smith's everyday life in the dorm—hanging out with his arty, sarcastic best friend Stella, hooking up with a beautiful free spirit named London, lusting for his gorgeous but dim surfer roommate Thor—all gets turned upside-down after one fateful, terrifying night.

After eating hallucinogenic cookies at a party, Smith is convinced he's witnessed the gruesome murder of a red haired girl who's been haunting his dreams. What he discovers as he tries to find out the truth leads him deeper and deeper into a mystery that will forever change the course of his life.

  • 5 stars "This rating is based primarily upon Thomas Dekker's talent & charisma extraordinâire … This often underrated young man's diverse range of acting roles & character shifts too are Extraordinâire !! mais absolument !! Subtle but absolutely extraordinary in depth. This vehicle seems to have given him a breakout role: a dichotic means to start leaving teen-acting behind while emerged in a teenaged character. This Sundance Film Festival favourite is whimsically delightful in its simplicity; overlook the obvious and enjoy the hedonistic comedy: the strange yet stereotypical sensual depth rampant tongue-in-cheek throughout""
  • 5 stars "gregg araki's best cult flick ever! If I were to describe this movie to a friend, they would think it was cheese in the Roquefort class, but araki makes it work, along with some decent acting, candy coloured sets and camera gels and an ontological café for all the kids can wax poetic .. how can you loose?"
