Loved it, slightly biased though.
19 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a Connoisseur of all things Kate Mulgrew, I'm somewhat biased in this one. She portrays Sharon Martin with ease, although horror has never been her fortay. She has a flare for the dramatic which is played out well in this film, aiding in the sympathizing of her character's plight. As for an actual review, this movie rates in effect up there with the Shining. You know when the bend in the corner is, and every point is virtually expected... it's a true "Here's Johnny" moment. However, if you enjoy the smaller budget horror films of the early 80s this one is well worth it. I LOVED it. Again, a biased opinion, but if you like Kate Mulgrew and Rip Torn, you're set.
