A quartet of misfits, Mouse (Sarah Rose Harper), Scottie (Brandon Thane Wilson), Emily (Katie Foster) and Louis (Torey Garza), is tasked with cleaning up their high school as part of summer tetention. As if that wasn't a bad enough job in itself, it's made a lot worse by the fact that the school had been the target of a brutal attack that didn't only leave a clear path of destruction, but also many students and staff dead. And creepily enough, our four heroes also have to do all cleaning at night. Now naturally the four are on edge a bit, not made any better that the teacher (Clare Kramer) overseeing their work goes completely off the rocker and suddenly shows horrible scars in her face for no discernable reason. What's worse though, it seems the four are not only locked in with no way of escape, also the four assassins of above shootings, modelled after the four riders of the Apocalypse, have gained access to the school, and it's not very likely they mean well. But that's not even the worst of it, as it seems reality gradually shifts away from our misfits, and what they get instead are horrors based on their personal guilts - and eventually it dawns upon them that they might not be totally innocent in regards to their own ordeals ...

 

Now this is a mindfuck of a movie - but in the best possible way, as this is the main premise of the story, and the film is really successful in gradually leading its audience down the rabbit hole without giving too much away in advance or over-explaining at any point. Seriously, the film starts out as pretty much your standard slasher with what seems like the exact characters one would expect - but takes more and more turns to the left and right until its very shocking reveal in the finale including a fate for our heroes nobody saw coming. And a direction heavy on mood that aims for more than just jump scares and solid performances help bring this slightly concept to life rather creepily.
