A poor girl's college stipend depends on her acing a history test in the class taught by the vile Mrs Tingle. Due to her friend's stupidity, she is caught cheating. The same friend happens to have brought a crossbow to school, and in order for her to still pass the test, she and the friend and another friend kidnap Mrs Tingle, then torture and try to murder her.Due to recent events before the movie came out, its title was changed from the original "Killing Mrs Tingle" to the above. This really doesn't do anything to make matters any better. Written and directed by Kevin Williamson, and understandably his only turn in the director's chair to date.
