From Back Cover:

Otis has everything he needs for the prom: the corsage, the convertible, the cool baby-blue tux (not to mention the fully equipped torture chamber in his basement). He even has the girl - a pretty blonde he's named Kim - who is dying to be his date. Literally.

From Raw Feed comes a star-powered (Daniel Stern, Illeana Douglas, Kevin Pollack), darkly comedic chiller directed by Tony Krantz (24) from a script by Thomas Schnauz (The X Files) and Erik Jendresen (Band Of Brothers) that combines the best traditions of slasher/revenge pics with the sitcom world of white-picket-fence America gone haywire. Sometime pissa guy and full-time psycho, Otis thinks he's a wicked dude... until he meets the Lawsons, his latest victim's happy suburban family. The Lawsons aren't happy anymore... and they have a truckload of power tools.

My Comments:

Although some scenes were a bit over the top and others were too predictable, this turned out to be some really good mindless entertainment with strong performances by the two leads, Bostin Christopher and Ashley Johnson.
