Effectively creepy horror flick!
11 May 1999 | by (Northeast Ohio) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was 10 years old, but it left quite a lasting impression on me! Pretty standard horror/suspense/murder-mystery stuff....except for a shocker of an ending! Check it out for yourself! If it doesn't at least give you a good case of the creeps, you should check yourself for a pulse!
