Over the past few weeks Project X has proved to be more than just another teen movie, but a cultural phenomenon that has taken the nation by storm. The film depicts a trio of “uncool” high school boys who, in order to gain popularity, decide to throw a massive house party. What transpires throughout the night is pure chaos fueled by drugs and alcohol where nothing seems to go right. However consequently the boys become legends and are lauded for their boldness.
Since the March 2nd release of the film, we have seen several cases of Project X copy cats all over the country. What should be careless fun has escalated into an epidemic where teens and 20-somethings are simply taking it too far causing destruction, violence and in one case a fatality. They all point back to the movie as a catalyst and inspiration for their transgressions and Warner Bros has been under heat for their role in producing the film.
Here are some examples of the Project X effect that have taken place since the movie’s release.
