AGH, Too many bad movies is not good.
3 February 1999 | by (Perth,Western Australia) – See all my reviews

The best thing about this movie was the previews. That aside this movie didn't have much going for it. Storyline : Female dreams about her friends dying and surprise, surprise, they do. The thing is when you only have three friends the killing doesn't last very long now does it? The thing that annoyed me the most about this film was the ending.

Now I've seen it all.
