tense taught thriller the fear is real
16 January 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

focuses on the disturbing fear that an attacker can arouse in any decade you care to think of,the fear is heightened by the central child character {played by jenny agutter} troubled by the thought her own father may be the culprit, nasty creepy atmospheric scenes in the woods will have you squirming in anticipation of what might happen,sadly underrated and overlooked.
