14 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

i was quite surprised by this movie it was quite enjoyable and lucky i bought this cheap $4.99 in the states it has some decent acting and is quite well made Eric Foster is okay as David but he gets annoying at times as all children do but overall he was bearable Kim Valentine is okay as well not much of a part playing a bratty sister Len Lesser is okay as the grandfather as is Ida lee as the Grandmother the plot is decent and i was quite surprised at the ending it was cool and creepy at the same time oh Michael Robinson is just annoying and horrid here i wanted to slap him silly! and some of the characters did lots of annoying things and was predictable at times but overall i had a decent time with this worth the watch and worth buying if you get it cheap like i did **1/2 out of 5
