Muddled script and slow pace offsets good atmosphere
3 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was interested in the premise when I rented this during the late 1980's. Stories about the paranormal were common during the 1970's. The premise did have potential. Here, an adopted girl is kidnapped by her insane biological mother and the mother's boyfriend, and the police need the help of her loving adopted mother, who has psychic powers. I turned out to be disappointed, though. Also, the Mississippi locations were well-used, but otherwise this film is dull. It seemed so much longer than it was and it featured a lot of uninteresting chat. Also, a number of scenes came off as forced, a heavy-handed attempt to make the film more coherent, but often made it even harder to understand. Clearly the film was not well edited. It would be nice if some of the scenery could be used again to make a better film.
