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.

Randall's not the wolf.

Watch your back,

pretty boy.

Dude, you know

how gay you sound?

[All laughing]

Blow me, Tom.

Have a nice walk.




Nighty-night, sheep boy.


You guys all suck!

Poor baby.

The wolf has survived.

Who wants to start round two?

Dodger felt up

the new guy.

She did ask me

to bring him here.

What a whore. Let's vote.

Hey, I believe

I'm allowed a defense.

Whenever someone lies,

they normally have a tell.

Like my new friend,

Graham, over here.

That's the most retarded thing

I've ever heard.

[All laughing]

And there it is.

Havert you guys realized

he can't open his mouth...

without taking a swig?


It's empty.

[Bottle rattling]

Graham, you can't convince us

if you can't

convince yourself.

You would've noticed it

if you didn't know

each other so well.

Are we voting or what?

One vote for Owen.

And the accuser?

The new guy gets to stay

and I have to go?

I cannot wait

to go to college.

Bare it and share it,


Have fun

with your new recruit.

He's just pissed

'cause he's fat.

I can still hear you!

[All laughing]

So was he the wolf?


Money's still on the floor.

Who wants to start

round three?

All right, this is it.

It's one vote for Owen.

Who's it going to be, Lewis?


Say good night, Mercedes.

Congratulations, baby.

Tonight, you could've

gotten laid. But instead...


You got fucked.

Not bad

for your first day.

Yeah, I guess it's one way

to pay for college.

You think

you're that good?

No, it's just bored rich kids

make it so easy.

They're like

bickering siblings.

They turn on each other

for no good reason.

Graham's tell, come on.

You're awfully quick

to judge.

No, it's just that...

Those bored rich kids

are my friends.
