This was one of those summer movies that I really wanted to see, but never got around to. The previews looked interesting, and I love horror, but this summer just didn't lend itself to movie watching so I am catching up. I know, from reading other peoples thoughts about this movie, so many loved this movie, which made me want to love it to. Unfortunately, I didn't love it, or even like it.
Jay, a young college student, has sex with a boy she barely knows. While sitting in his car she gets a terrible surprise and wakes up tied to a chair in her underwear. Her life has been hanged forever and for this one time of unprotected sex she gets a lifetime of murderous beings following her. To be free she needs to have sex with someone else, but the question is can she? And who? And should she?
So, the premise to this movie was great. A supernatural sexually transmitted disease that kills and can only be gotten rid of through sex. However, this movie was incredibly slow with a lot of teenagers running around screaming and being chased by who really knows what. The beginning of the movie was really interesting and it started with a gruesome murder. Then things just went downhill.
There wasn't really interesting about the characters to make me care if they lived or died, and at one point Jay was just so boring I wanted her to die. She was the most uninteresting character, besides Bella Swan from the Twilight series. I just could not get engaged with her character.
My other big problem: there was never an explanation for the supernatural sexually transmitted disease. I wanted more and I wanted there to be a reason behind this, or at least a little more explanation for it. I wanted some research to be done so I wasn't going through this whole movie wondering why these kids were just dealing with this with no freaking information. Also, where were the adults? This was another horror movie where kids were just running around like they have no parents and can do whatever they want. I am so tired of that. Like really. I mean I know one of the fathers was dead, but where was the mom when her daughters went off for days and disappeared to some guys beach house? Really?
Anyway, let's just say I wasn't a fan of this movie. I wanted more from something so different and it fell flat.
