Justine initially thoroughly enjoys her freedom. but When Justine is getting some food from a local gas station, her night takes an ugly turn for the worse when she meets a malicious young woman, Violet (Ashley Greene- Twilight 1, 2, 3 & 4, CGBG 2013) who then menaces her with her car. Justine makes it back to the campus grounds safely and alerts Wayne about what happened. While getting snacks at a vending machine, she makes note on the news of the disappearance of several young women. Just when Justine thinks she is safe, Violet and some of her accomplices have followed Justine to the college and start pursuing her, killing anyone who gets in their path. They believe her name is Kristy and they are part of a group of recruits for the disenchanted and burgeoning evil based on the internet. They believe Justine to be this woman Kristy who their leader believes is God, and must be killed. Kill Kristy, Kill God. Justine must summon all the strength she can muster to fight for her life, and maybe even take one or two of her pursuers down along with her. Will Justine convince them she is not Kristy before they brutally kill her, or will she succumb to their evil wills?
Kristy has a very complex yet simple plot with lots of twists, turns, and plenty of suspense. Well acted with a smaller cast, with the events taking place mostly on the college campus. Plenty of blood and gore with an ending that will surprise. Definitely worth watching. CrypticRock scores this movie 5 out of 5 stars.
