Simon (Liam Hughes) and his best friend Joe (Joe Daly), two teenagers in a sleepy seaside town, are pretty much the "nerds" at their school and in their social circles, while they have pretty much the same interests as all other teenagers, especially belonging to the "in-crowd" and picking up pretty girls. To achieve that, the two of them have come up with the idea to make and (self-)publish a comicbook, one that stars all their acquaintances. And indeed that works to a degree, they become the talk of their town, especially since their comic is built close to reality and sometimes seems predictive of things to come. Enter Hannah (Daisy Ridley), a mysterious but beautiful girl who hooks up with Simon and Joe - which rings the alarm bells of Joe's father Frank (Mark Forester Evans), as he and Simon's father at their boys age, have had the similar idea about doing a comicbook about the locals, until Hannah turned up and a massacre ensued. Of course, Simon and Joe don't believe Frank, who's pretty much reputed to be the town drunk - and only too late do they realise they and their friends and loved ones are indeed heading right for disaster, and Hannah's nobody but death herself, coming to reap her harvest ...

 

Now truth to be told, this movie might have a bit too many subplots to follow, is a bit too overburdened with principal supporting roles, and quite simply a bit convoluted - but the longer the film goes the less that matters as the many subplots really create the right atmosphere to make the finale a real kick in the guts and actually help in confusing the audience in what's real and what might be not - and the more one is confused, the more one is at the edge of one's seat (in this case at least) ... which is ultimately what makes this a pretty cool genre flick.
