Don't rent this film!
8 October 1999 | by (Northern Michigan) – See all my reviews

Talk about dull: this southern-made "horror film" seems to reach >its highest peak of unintentional humor when the camera repeatedly zooms in on the killer's hidden face making a phone call to his next victim. Film looks as if it was shot on a $100 budget. Shame, shame, shame.
