        Spader is the new Dean in this rebellious teen drama/thriller. I really liked it, and if you're a fan of Spader you'll like it too.

        Great film, brings back many childhood memories. It's cheesy in parts of course (teen 80's) but that's only part of it's charm. I'll never get tired of this film. It's a fun and entertaining viewing experience. Great soundtrack as well.
