Sorority sisters (most prominently Imogen Poots) are preyed on by hooded assailants who seem to be connected to a fraternity on campus. Director and co-writer Sophia Takal uses the horror genre as a vehicle for a preposterously overblown feminist message, the bottom line of which is that the only good white male is a dead one. If frights are few and some of the plot elements incoherent, at least the mayhem is mostly kept under wraps.

Much stylized violence with some gore, a scene of nonmarital sensuality, a few sexual jokes, at least one profanity, a single rough term, occasional crude and crass language. The Catholic News Service classification is A-III — adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 — parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
