How well do you know your neighbors? It all begins one sunny day in Century City High School's girls' locker room with the gruesome murder of a cheerleader. Soon, the attractive school valedictorian, Laurel, a promising chemist, is being stalked in one of the science labs. She catches a glimpse of the intruder, but gets away by breaking and escaping through a glass window.
Within the next few days, other promising students, the best and the brightest the town has to offer, are killed by the mysterious, wise-cracking, goth-inspired, politically incorrect Clown. As the killer's net tightens around Laurel, those close to her are also targeted by the ruthless maniac.
Enlisting the aid of an outside investigator, it is only a matter of time before she, too, comes face to face with this darkest of evil again. Will anyone survive the carnage to see another day?
