This is kind of like a high school version of "The Stepford Wives". A family moves in and finds the local high school to be a little strange. He's sort of an outcast and "disturbed" about the strange behavoir of the jocks. Together with some other outcasts they try to solve the mystery before they themselves become infected with strange conformist ways. It's an alright idea and the acting is alright I suppose, it just never comes close to scary or creepy and there is definitely wasted opportunity here. I never really liked any of the characters so whether or not they turned into perfect kids never seemed to bother me and perhaps that is what was wrong. Still it's relatively easy to sit through regardless of how Hollywood it seems.
