goofy fun.
30 December 2002 | by (pembroke,massachusetts.) – See all my reviews

This movie delivers a promising horror story, but is terribly slow at times. When I was younger, I rented this movie so many time, The tape started to wear-out. The first time you see the monster it looks awesome, and the suspence and character development is great, but this gets cheesier and cheesier as the movie unfolds. Good cast, fun to watch. Fun, but not great.
