I've never quite understood why people made a big deal out of this one, as I actually think the third sequel is far more entertaining than even this first film. I suppose it's necessary for back story though even if it is really dull for the topic matter. It's about a group of twelve year olds, they taunted one girl and ended up being responsible for her falling out of a window and dying. Now they are in high school and getting ready for prom. Could someone else be preparing for revenge from beyond the grave? Seriously the plot does sound so much better than it actually seems while watching it, I really was disappointed.
