‘Project X’ is out of control

Many may argue that Project X is a mere teenage version of The Hangover, I’d say it was one of the best movies of 2012.
The movie is shot in the perspective of a kid who documents everything he does. At first you may think, “Oh great, another movie with filming like the Blair Witch Project”.
Though after the first five minutes, you feel as if you’re a part of the movie, seeing it in first person. Project X takes place in a normal suburban neighborhood, at a very typical high school.
Three nerds are sick and tired of being at the bottom of the food chain.
They decide the best way to gain popularity is to throw a huge party.
They convinced their friend Thomas, one of the three nerds, to host the party at his house for his birthday when his parents left the house for the weekend.
They agreed on inviting only fifty people. However, one of Thomas’s friends went out behind his back and told almost everyone at the school to go. Thomas was nervous so his friend secretly decided to call a radio station to get the word out.
At around 9:20 pm, nobody was there, just when they started to think the party was on the verge of nobody showing up, a large pack of people arrived. They started the party off with some music, a pool, and some drinks, just how a normal party should be.
After lots of fun, things got out of hand real quick. People kept showing up, and eventually worked their way into the house. Things got loud, and neighbors complained, and eventually called the police.
After a close call with the police the party continued, and was so big it was no longer in control of Thomas and his buddies.
People were breaking things left and right, and an insane drug dealer showed up and started burning things with his flamethrower. The swat team was called and eventually got everyone to leave the party.
Thomas was left with a destroyed house, and his dad’s $80,000 Mercedes at the bottom of his pool. Anywhere from 1,500 to 3,000 people showed and left. The party was said to be the biggest and best party ever thrown. Personally I thought the movie was incredible.
It seemed like a combination of The Hangover and Super bad. I would rate the movie 9 out of 10.
