Estranged daughter is lured home by a cryptic letter apparently written by her long-missing father.
22 September 2000 | by (cincinnati, ohio) – See all my reviews

This direct-to-video thriller is not the most exciting, nor the most interesting suspense flick you"ll ever see, but it has some redeeming qualities. Director Doug Adams does what he can to spice up Joseph Stefano's(PSYCHO) tiresome script, and the film is well photographed(by Arledge Amenaki). Carol Lynley and Gail O' Grady handle the leading roles well, though the supporting cast appears to be in a somnambulistic state. I wouldn't call it the best evening's entertainment I've ever had, but as far as amateurish trash goes, you could do much worse.
