Great plot twist at the end of the movie!
12 September 1999 | by (Sao Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

A cool terror movie, that will leave you on your toes on the final moments and make you astonished at the amazing plot twist at the end. Ok, it's not a movie I'd be looking for, but if you can catch it on tube it's pretty entertaining and will give you subject for a few good conversations on plot twists.
