Another sadly underrated film
15 January 2005 | by (Amityville, Long Island) – See all my reviews

This film has some very good aspects to it:

1: A simple, yet well-done story that is interesting and a good script. (I loved the beginning of the films' excerpt from the bible)

2: Great filming locations (Alabama)

3: A vet. actor! (Fritz Weaver)

When I first saw this film, I was a little confused since I only saw the ending. I eventually found it on DVD and watched the whole thing through. I thought it was great and I added Fritz Weaver to my list of my fav actors. I then found out that A lot of people hated it. What the heck is up with that? Oh well. Anyway, I love this film and I wish the producers would make a sequel. My rating: 4/4 stars
