Stays in my mind after all these years
26 August 1999 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

And one reason it does is because of the propaganda value it must have for the anti-choice lobby. That notwithstanding, in my 19-year-old eyes, it was quite a thriller. Scott Hylands as the psycho daddy seeking revenge on his wife who aborted their child had dead eyes that drilled right through one.

I have thought of it many times over the years. The climax was a heartstopper. At least back then. I'm glad I grew up. Now that it's available on video, I wonder if Paul Hill will be allowed to order it in prison.
