A Lure: Teen Fight Club is about a cop (Sonneborn) who goes undercover at a high school after a bunch of mysterious disappearances. She soon learns of a secret rave out in the country and the popular girls ask her to be their ride. But the maps the girls have lead them to the middle of nowhere where they’re forced to fight each other to the death for wealthy onlookers.
I have to say this movie was a big surprise. It’s clearly a B-movie, so don’t expect anything more than that. But it knows what it is and keeps it’s tongue firmly planted in it’s cheek. It actually really kept my interest. It was also an interesting genre blend. It’s mostly about these teenagers going out to this rave and them getting drunk and having sex and arguing and all that stuff. So it’s kind of like the beginning of a slasher movie. But then it’s also got the “fight club” part which is a plot you’ve probably seen a billion times, mostly on television. I can remember episodes of Dark Angel and Angel that both did this kind of gladiator type forced fight to the death thing. This sounds like it’d go together horribly, but it works. It’s interesting.
It’s a cheesy, over the top, low budget bit of fun. There’s obviously a ton of problems I could pick at, mostly the cinematography, but honestly this is a pretty fun ride. I suggest gathering some friends and getting some beers and you’ll love it.
