The Curve (Trimark, 1998)
The Curve or Dead Man’s Curve (UK and Australia) is a 1998 thriller based on a college urban legend that says if your roommate commits suicide you’ll get an automatic 4.0 GPA. Tim (Matthew Lillard), Chris (Michael Vartan) and Rand (Randall Batinkoff) are roommates. When they hear of the policy, Tim and Chris hatch a plot to
kill Rand and pose it as a suicide.
Chris’ girlfriend Emma (Keri Russell) and Rand’s girlfriend Natalie (Tamara Craig Thomas) are also roommates. After Rand’s “suicide,” Natalie also commits suicide. As everyone’s
motives come into play, the truth is revealed.
The Curve was shot in and around Baltimore, Maryland, primarily at Johns Hopkins University.
