I remember this movie! And that's why I'm going to have my daughter watch it...
13 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this movie when I was little...and I think (not sure) my mom and dad may have been wanting to teach me about the monsters out there. I think this movie is the best way to make our kids aware of the sick, twisted individuals that threaten to hurt our kids or change their lives forever. This is a must see for naive young girls who don't seem to "get" fully how there are monsters out there. Yes, some may say it will scare them. I'd rather have my daughter scared than have her end up a victim. I know it made ME wiser when I was little...cause I was just like my daughter....overly friendly-never meets a stranger.
