Strange new student, Violet (who looks like a knockoff Saoirse Ronan), is desperate for friends which she finds with a tight knit group of girls after McKenna, also known as Mac, (played by a generic Debby Ryan) reaches out to her. On Halloween night, the girls gather in a cemetery to drink and Violet suggests that they play “light as a feather, stiff as a board” but with a twist where she predicts how each girl will die. Everyone but Mac that is because Violet seems to be blocked when it’s McKenna’s turn.
Violet is overly friendly. Buying expensive gifts for Mac and making the girls feel uncomfortable though they are not sure exactly why. When the first of the girls die exactly as predicted, they are shook to their core. They become suspicious of Violet. And for good reason – she has a disgusting, oozing growth on her lower back and is seeing invisible butterflies. Yes, you read that right. Strange things keep happening and the remaining girls decide to investigate Violet. They rush to unravel Violet’s mysterious past and stay alive.
Is it worth watching: If you can’t find anything else or you’re like thirteen years old. This show is a weird mix of Final Destination and some gross parasitic fantasy creature. The acting is not great.
Here are some problems I have:
Two of the characters wear the same shirt at different times throughout the season -Why?
If you are going to do CPR, you have to at least try longer than 10 freaking seconds. Drowning is one of the few time CPR actually works and they just stopped. WTF….
What is wrong with Lena? She’s so creepy.
Did Violet have a wrist tattoo the whole time or did it only show up at the end of the last episode?
