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.

In related news,

local woman Becky Roberts...

has been missing now

for more than 24 hours...

[birds chirping]

Is anyone there?



Where is everyone?

In the assembly.

So why aren't you?

Why aren't you?

I'm a transfer,

I just got here.

I know.

Is it that obvious?

It's a small school.

Word travels fast.

So what's the assembly for?

Major drama.

Some townie

was screwing the wrong guy

and she's gone missing.

So the police are here

to teach us

about personal safety.

Like, don't talk

to strangers.

I'm Owen.


That's unique.

Blame my mom,

she's a Dickens scholar.

And your dad?

Let's just say

he's not a scholar.

So where'd you come from?


I meant

what was your last school?


Before that, Collegiate.

Webster before that.

So what'd you do?

I was dating this girl

who happened to be

the dears daughter.

Miss Allen.

Miss McNally.

Since you seem

to have skipped the assembly,

perhaps detention...

I'm sorry,

Miss McNally, is it?


I'm Owen Matthews

and this is my fault.

It's my first day

and I asked Miss Allen here...

if she could show me

the way to my dorm.

Not that I would ever set foot

in the boys' dorm.

No, just to the dorm's

front entrance.

Fine, but as soon

as you finish

showing Mr. Matthews around...

[door opening]

Make sure you contact

your RA and he'll help you...


I'll do just that.


Thank you for your help.

I guess

you're stuck with me.

[Tougher Than It Is

by Cake playing]

[Phone ringing]

(secretary on intercom)

Mr. Matthews,

your son is on line 1.

Send him to voicemail,


(Charles on voicemail)

You've reached

Charles Matthews...

I'm away from my desk

right now.

Please leave a message

and I will return

as soon as possible.

Hey, Dad, just wanted

to let you know

that I'm all settled in.

The bus worked out fine...

though it would have been nice

to have seen you

before I left.

I got a great

work-study shift...

as a teaching assistant

in the Physics Department.

And I signed up for classes.

Mostly hard sciences,

per your request.

And I just met my roommate,


I just beat off.


Great guy.

Well, I guess that's it, so...

you know, give me a call

if you have some time.


I hope

you washed that hand.


We're sneaking out.

Good for you.

Do you want to come?

Why would I want to do that?

Dodger asked me to bring you.


Where are we going?


The old chapel,

Westlake tradition.

To do what? Bible study?

To play a game.

[Students chattering]


What up!

Party's here.

Over here in the locker room.


No, I'm glad they're here.


What's going on, man?

I thought you were missing,

like that townie.


Tom, who's your

new boyfriend?

You'll have to excuse

Randall here.

He doesn't know the difference

between a roommate

and a cellmate.

[All giggling]

Everybody, this is Owen.

Owen, this is everybody.

[Girl laughing]

Jungle Fever,

you guys want to join us?


What's wrong, Graham?

Bad mood 'cause

you blew the physics test?

I don't know, Lewis.

Bad mood because

Mercedes blew

the lacrosse team?

Blow this.

I hate to be the bitch here,

but are we going

to play or what?

Come on, Regina,

you love to be the bitch.

All right,

everyone put your money in.

Is someone gonna tell me
