You won't need this - if you've watched the first half then, yeah, what you've guessed is probably right.

So rather than cut to the chase, Jenna recounts the story from the beginning over a few days in the hospital.  The good guys die one by one. Keith is found hanged upside down, one girl is locked in the hot tub and drowns, the blond brother steps on a trap and then disappears, the other brother is shot with a nail gun, but is still ok.

At the docks, trying to find the blond brother, they realise that Megan is innocent so should leave and go her own way. They ask the older brother about what happened last year and piece together the name-clues that were left to spell ""Regina"". The brother tells the story of a girl they got drunk and slept with, but then as she was leaving she tripped and hit her head. She died from the wound, so the two brothers buried her in the woods.

The three find the spot where the girl was buried, but instead find the body of the younger brother.

The others return to the cabin, where the older brother opens a cupboard to be bitten in the chest by a snake and soon dies.

Mark & Jenna venture upstairs to find the decomposing body of Regina - and then Keith (still alive) appears and holds Jenna hostage. Mark shoves Keith over the top bannister, and breaks his neck in the fall. Megan shows up, and the two girls run down to the docks - where the boat has reappeared. They get on board.

The detective at this point raises a few questions. Jenna says that Megan then picks up a knife, and Jenna has to kill her in self defence. The detective buys it. The psychologist isn't so sure.

Jenna goes back to the hospital bed to wait for her parents. She drugs the psychologist and escapes wearing her suit.

Jenna's parents arrive - and point out that their daughter, Jenna, is in fact who we thought was Megan.  Megan was Regina's little sister.

Jenna/Megan a.k.a ""Keyser Soze"" ditches her ride and hitches a ride to escape to freedom. It makes sense then that she can retell the story without even being there as it was all made up anyway.

Member Comments:

superstoxs - "How did Jenna/Megan know where to dig up the body ?"

kiefer - "Cause she did it"

JT - "I think she was meant to find out from the dude who lived in the woods. Or she was just nifty at archaeology to find old bodies. But there's a load of holes in this one - I think early on the director knew this so there's a few clues that not everything can be believed because it's all based on her version of events. She might have gone mental in the first 5 minutes and killed them all, but it would have been a short movie. Better ... but short."

S.Armstrong - "Wait so what exactly did mark do?jenna saw it happen,kyle and tyler did it, and ashley knew about it...wat did mark do?" Nikkinik - "So was Jenna (aka the real Megan) the stowaway in the beginning? Or was Megan (aka the real Jenna) really wasn't suppose to be there. Plus what with Keith, when did he really die and which chick really killed him? Too many questions can be asked when you think about it."

When she's retelling the story as 'Jenna' she says that she doesn't know if mark was involved but still can't look at him the same way. I assume that she means that she killed him because of his association with the group and him just being at the party was enough. He wasn't supposed to go on the trip in the first place, so possibly just bad luck on his part. She wouldn't have been able to leave him alive anyway, because if she did, she wouldn't have been able to pull off any of her story- he would've named her as the stowaway, Megan, right off the bat and she'd have been suspect number one. There are a lot of holes in the story, but seeing as how she made the whole thing up, it could have gone down completely different anyway, other than HOW they died, because apparently coroner reports didn't contradict that part."

My best guess is that the real Megan was the stowaway in the beginning, seeing as how the rest of them- including the real Jenna all knew each other and were all meant to be there. Keith died at the end, after helping Megan kill everyone else off. The real Megan killed him (loose ends and whatnot) with the shovel at the end. When she first mentions him being dead, the cop points out that the autopsy doesn't say that he died hanging from the tree. But he doesn't fight her when her story claims that fake Megan hit him in the head."

DestinyValentine - "The only thing I don't understand with this is that Megan (aka Jenna) was 15 so how would she be good friends with all of the others if she wasn't the stowaway?"
