The film contains a top-drawer performance from Lindy Booth as a [[FilleFatale sexpot schoolgirl]]. The movie also features Julian Morris, [[Music/BonJovi Jon Bon Jovi]], Gary Cole and Creator/JaredPadalecki.

* TwistEnding: Combined with a repeated GenreShift.[[spoiler: Half an hour before the ending, the film is a somewhat melodramatic thriler. Twenty minutes before the movie ends, it's your typical teen slasher movie. Ten minutes, it's Film/AprilFoolsDay GoneHorriblyRight. At the very end, it turns out to be a film noir.]]

* CatholicSchoolGirlsRule: OK, technically it's not a Roman Catholic school, but "Dodger" walks squarely into this trope.

* AnimalMotifs: Wolves and sheep of course. The serial killer is named 'The Wolf', the lying game separates people into 'sheep' and 'wolves', the weapon of choice is a hunting knife, Dodger dresses up as Little Red Riding Hood for Halloween and her screen name has 'Bo Peep' in it.
* ArcWords: "They're the sheep. And we're the wolves."



* ChekhovsGunman: A couple of times we see the school janitor glaring at Owen. It turns out [[spoiler: he's Dodger's father. Though he has no role in the plot]].
* ChekhovsHobby:
** [[spoiler: It's mentioned that Regina has a flair for making fake blood]].
** [[spoiler: Lewis is described as an aspiring actor]].



* DangerTakesABackSeat: Suggested by Mercedes when creating the killer. She's shot down for it being too cliche. [[spoiler: She exploits this later when pranking Owen]].



* FilleFatale

to:

* FilleFataleFakingTheDead: Dodger pretends to drown in the pool to mess with Owen and Tom.
* FilleFatale: Dodger who is in a relationship with her teacher. What's more is that it's implied that ''she'' seduced him.
* FiveTokenBand: We have a Brit (Owen), a white girl (Dodger), a black guy (Lewis), an Asian girl (Regina), a Latina girl (Mercedes) and two more white dudes in Tom and Randall.



* HorrorDoesntSettleForASimpleTuesday: Knowingly invoked, as the fictional 'Wolf' is supposed to strike on Halloween night.



* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:Dodger]]

to:

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:Dodger]][[spoiler:Dodger arranges this all so that she can be this for her part in Becky's murder]].



* SexyWhateverOutfit: Dodger has a sexy Red Riding Hood costume for Halloween.



* SlashersPreferBlondes: The movie opens with a blonde getting murdered.
* TeensAreMonsters: Since their idea of fun is to spread a rumour that a serial killer could be on the loose, only a couple of weeks after a local girl is murdered. The story gets emailed to the girl's ''mother''. Additionally at the Halloween dance, a few people are dressed up as the Wolf in question.
* TheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Owen's father spends most of the movie putting his son on voicemail and dodging his calls. [[spoiler: After Owen kills Mr Walker]] the father flies all the way to the police station, hugs his son sincerely and comforts him.
* TokenMinorityCouple: The BetaCouple to the white Owen and Dodger are black Lewis and Latina Mercedes.



* WithFriendsLikeThese: All over the place. Despite being a group of friends, they seem to play tricks on each other ''often''.

* WithFriendsLikeThese: All over the place. Despite being a group of friends, they seem to play tricks on each other ''often''. This is lampshaded by Dodger after they plan their story, saying this is only possible after being together four years.
