This movie made me an all time Carpenter fan.
25 November 1998 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

I never expected that a TV movie like this early work from John "Thrillmaster" Carpenter could be thrilling and excellent as this one was made. Thanks Mr Carpenter. Excellent entertainment and terrific conclusion.
