Excellent Movie
27 November 2003 | by (Georgia, USA) – See all my reviews

A terrific movie, Glenn Ford, Rod Tayler, and Suzanne Pleshette give wonderful performances. Not only a suspenseful movie, but it also one which makes a person think. Maybe some things are just meant to be. I just wish it was available on Video or DVD.
