      It’s a version of “the prankers” who get “pranked”. It is good if it has an original twist,never done before and this does not appear in the logline so it needs a rewrite and an economical one.

      Neat hook. It’s a who-dunnit. The log line is a little wordy; and could use some punctuation.

      The messed up thing about the logline is the use of a girls name. it almost sounds like it a person this person really doesn’t like cause the logline could have been written without saying the girls name. The other bad thing is too much information. We already know what’s going to happen from beginning to end which means why watch the movie.
      It suppose to give a a tease not tell us everything that will happen.
      example:
      The door opened and blood poured out.

      From that one small sentence a lot of questions could arise
      Why did the blood pour out?
      who’s blood was it?
      was it that the refrigerator died and the food defrosted?
      Did someone get shot behind the door?
      etc

      Maybe you can go back and rework the line to open up our curiosity to the story

      The is a good TV guide tagline…rather than a log-line.

      Protagonist, antagonist, conflict, goal and what’s at stake

      A surprise birthday party goes bad when the guest of honor is found dead in a haunted house. The hostess must find the killer before she is is arrested or ends up in a coffin herself.

      “decide to prank their friend, Samantha taking her to an old wrecked mansion around midnight, before giving a surprise birthday party”
      This is the inciting incident – you don’t need to tell us the whole thing.
      “A young girl is found dead in a deserted mansion when a prank backfires” would be more economical

      I think the shorter log line would serve you better. Change the “ampersands” to the word “and”, it’s more professional that way. Also, the number 12 should be spelled out, or replace it with the word midnight. Best of luck.
