My girlfriend and I saw this movie as part of a film festival in our city last week. We went in not knowing much more than a quick tag line, and weren't expecting much from a relatively low-budget Canadian production.
The storyline involves an 18-year-old student whose parents belong to a Satanic cult. After realizing that they want to sacrifice him because of his virgin blood, he sets out on a mission to lose his virginity by sunrise. Think "American Pie" meets "Superbad".
Having low expectations, I'm happy to say we were quite surprised with it. There were plenty of laughs and we were all chuckling a lot by the end. The two lead actors have a great rapport, probably due to them being good friends in real life, and all the others in supporting positions are just enough to keep things moving along at a good pace. A huge plus is that the movie never takes itself too seriously, and manages to poke fun at a lot of things at once.
We were also lucky enough to hear the director, producer, and one of the cast members (Annie Clark) talk about the creation of the film a bit. They were all quite personable and funny, which explains the tongue-in-cheek humour of the movie a lot.
All in all, it's absolutely worth the 90 minutes or so. It's no Shakespeare, but solid nonetheless!

High school student Neil (Jesse Carere) has vowed to remain celibate due to his religious beliefs, as his church wants him to be part of a religious ceremony that requires him to be a virgin. Neil is unaware that his church, which practices Satanism, is planning to sacrifice him to Satan in order to prevent 1000 years of peace on earth. Once Neil becomes aware of this plan, he and his best friend Matt (Daryl Sabara) make plans to find a woman to take Neil's virginity and thus save him from certain death.
