Plot[edit]

Alice Lewis, a young 20 year-old girl, is turning 21 and is upset about it. Her sorority girlfriends want to cheer her up, and decide to hold a birthday party with an Alice in Wonderland theme at Charlene Glass's house. Alice knows that in the basement of that house, her mother, Ann Lewis, was brutally hacked to death by a mask killer 20 years before. The girls set a rule that no cell phones and no boys will be allowed.[1]
