Synopsis: Nobody believes a liar - even when they're telling the truth. When a young woman is found murdered, a group of local high school students decide to further scare their classmates by spreading online rumors that a serial killer called "The Wolf" is on the loose. By describing "The Wolf's" next victims, the students' game is to see how many people they can convince - and if anyone will uncover the lie. But when the described victims actually do start turning up dead, suddenly no one knows where the lies end and the truth begins. As someone or something begins hunting the students themselves, the game turns terrifyingly real.

how to play?

It's a lying game.

The object:

Avoid suspicion.

Manipulate your friends.

Eliminate your enemies.

Have a seat.

I'm going to secretly pick

one person in the group

to be a liar.

The wolf.

And everyone else

is a sheep.

If you can find the wolf...

and convince

the rest of the group

to vote him out...

then the money is yours.

The wolf survives,

the cash is theirs.

So how do we find the wolf?

Figure out who's lying.

Who's Dodger looking at?

I'm thinking Texas T!


Dude, you will never borrow

my car again.

Then as much as I'm sure

I'm going to miss

the PT ragtop...

I thought that I heard

Tom move when Dodger...

was walking around

to mark the wolf.

All right, Randall,

that an official accusation?

And if it is?

Then you can only send home

the accused or the accuser...

but you can't win

if you don't play.

So let's vote.

That's right.

And the defense?

No, I'm not the wolf.

No, I swear to God

I'm not the wolf.

I swear on the Gold Star State

I'm not the wolf.

Come on,

are you gonna listen to me...

or are you gonna listen

to this chump here...

whose buddy list reads

like a sex-offenders registry?



Come on!

Show of hands,

who thinks Tom's the wolf?



You guys, come on.


And Randall, our accuser?




All right.

Come on, we need one more

for the majority, guys.

One more for the majority.

O-Dog, help a brother out.

Listen, just 'cause

you're Tom's new bunk-buddy...

doesn't mean

you got to be his bitch.

You don't really think

the angry homophobe thing...

is fooling anyone, do you?

[Boys laughing]


Come on, Randall,

you know the rules.

Show the group

if you've got the mark.

Tell me I'm rich.

[Boy hooting]

No mark.

I guess
