“Keeping something like this a secret. That is just poison.”

After stalking a girl in his class, and hacked her internet accounts, Daniel gets house arrest by the police. The stalked girl gets through to the troubled boy on skype and blows her brain out. She’s now stalking the boy as a mean ghost. Can he escape the vicious presence with help from his stoned friends?

Good performances, but a messy execution of the film. It has loads of good scenes, but some are really unnecessary. It’s getting to surreal for it’s own good at times. And, though it’s interesting, the score doesn’t really fit with the rest. Here’s potential, so I hope the director will get a better grip in his next feature.

A great looking Blu-Ray as always from this company. Picture and sound is superb. Loads of extras. Audio Commentary, featurettes, interviews etc.
