    "Secrets secrets are no fun, secrets secrets hurt someone."

    This teen horror flick is based on the YA novel of the same name by Stephanie Perkins.

    In case this author's name looks familiar, it is in fact the same person who wrote Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the Boy Next Door, and Isla and the Happily Ever After. She has range!!!

    After the death of popular footballer Jackson Pace, the senior class of a small Nebraska town is on edge when they find out the killer wore a mask of his victim's face. The killer's objective? To expose everyone's secrets.

    This is, in a word, terrifying. 

    Our story specifically focuses on Makani Young (played by Sydney Park) after her ~mysterious transfer~ from her high school in Hawaii to her new school in Nebraska:

    The drama! The mystery! The intrigue! 

    The students of this cornfed town initially think the murder of Jackson is a one-off, but once their secretly racist student council president and Makani's crew member Rodrigo — who's secretly addicted to prescription drugs — is murdered, these kids soon realize that it wasn't a one-off, but the act of a serial killer:

    IDK what's scarier, a killer inside your house or that said house being in Nebraska... 

    OF COURSE, everyone in town thinks the killer is Oliver Larsson (played by Théodore Pellerin), because he's a ~loner~ and wears ~all black~, but little does everyone know, Oliver and Makani have a lil' sum'n sum'n going on, and Makani wouldn't fall for a killer...right?

    Star-crossed lovers! 

    But is he the killer? Or is it someone else? ONLY TIME WILL TELL!

    Anyway, this film is chock-full of premium teen content™: horror edition!

    We got cheeky references to '90s cult classics:

    The resident dude in town who knows a lil' too much at all times but is mostly there to serve as a red herring:

    A secret from the past that's inevitably going to come out:
