tongue in cheek with a scream in the throat
7 August 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There are certainly are a few (so called)well made, big budget horror films that are not as entertaining as this one. Jack Jones gives it all he's got as an actor and looks like he is having a ball. All in all IMHO an enjoyable piece of late night hokum.
