College student Sarah (Jessa Settle) is almost a bit too much of a goodie-two-shoe for her own good: She parties rarely, doesn't drink, doesn't flirt around (let alone sleep around), and while she isn't a virgin by any means, she has decided to take a break from boys after a recent bitter break-up. And maybe that's exactly the reason why Christian (Paul Galvan), president of a notorious fraternity, has fallen for her. Now at first, when they meet at a party and he tries to get into her panties a bit too eagerly, she pushes him away, but eventually, they meet for coffee, get to know each other better, and Sarah has to admit he's actually a pretty nice person beneath all of his fratboy posturing. For a while it seems that they'd be going steady before long, but then Sarah breaks off all contact, and when Christian tries to get back in touch with her, he finds out she has a boyfriend, Eric (Jushua Tomasik, voiced by Al Fallick). This totally drags him down and what was love at first becomes obsession, much to the concern of his frat brothers, especially Patrick (Matt Tramel), who has long questioned his authority, and now that he's no longer the womanizing party animal he used to be anymore, he figures he can replace Christian. But there's more to Christian and the fraternity than meets the eye ...

 

Truth to be told, the beginning of Somebody's Darling follows the tried-and-true college formula a bit too closely, what with the college partyboy discovering depth and the virtuous girl loosening up to meet halfway. Sure, there are signs here and there of an extra layer to the story, but tension only builds up very slowly ... until about halfway through the formula is toppled over to reveal a very dark parallel plotline that has been built up in the shadows and once moved center stage really gets the audience on the edge of their seats to leave them with a shocking finale - and this second half is really what makes the film, a cleverly told horror story filled with atmosphere and suspense, with all sorts of plottwists along the way, and carried out by a solid ensemble - and for that the movie's totally worth watching!
