Love it! Love it! Love it!
27 October 2003 | by (.: Fiendish Writings in the Dark :.) – See all my reviews

This movie held me absolutely spellbound in my youth.

This is one of the best, most under-rated love stories ever made. I've never heard of anyone in real life who's seen this work. Every time I ask is anyone's seen Sandcastles, they always respond with, "You mean Ice Castles, don't you?" LOL-No!

This film was my sole entertainment on a rainy winter Saturday. It held such enchantment that I've never forgotten it. The tenderness exhibited here is the thing of childhood fantasy. The truly sweet encounter shown in this movie was portrayed so well that I believed it was real.

If you're into love stories with a small twist of intrigue; if you liked Ghost, then, check out the movie from which it spawned. Jan Michael Vincent is completely top row (believe it...or not!) in this all but forgotten, Made for TV film.

It earns a 9.4/10 on the "TV" scale, from...
