Storyline

A woman goes to a previously all-male boarding school on a scholarship. She begins to separate herself from her boyfriend in order to devote more time to her new environment. Over time, she notices that more and more students have lost their individuality, and approach their activities in a lifeless and automatic manner. Eventually, a diabolical plot fostered by the faculty begins to emerge. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Not bad.
26 June 2000 | by bigpappa1--2See all my reviews

Virgina Madsen ( looking a bit too old for her role ) stars as a student at a prep school who discovers that the staff is stealing brain tissue from the students and using it to keep their youth. The idea is nothing new, but the film is given decent treatment and remains entertaining for most of its running time. The ending feels rushed though, but it is nice to see a zombie film with only mild violence that manages to scare and entertain these days. Rating: 6 out of 10.
