Great low budget horror with Linnea Quigley!!
19 May 2004 | by (Murfreesboro, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

I watched this great little gem of a horror movie a few years ago, and I'm ashamed to admit it. But I totally forgot about it!! So, I popped it back into the VCR a few weeks back and loved every minute of it!! I have to admit, though, that most of the cast did a terrible job. Most of them overacted. But that's ok, because it's still a great movie. Linnea Quigley did an excellent job as usual. I just wish that she would've been in it longer. The film was very creepy and suspenseful. It reminded me a lot of Kevin Tenney's other films. Night of the Demons (a personal favorite!), and Witchboard. Both were very well done horror films that had a lot of atmosphere and suspense. I recommend anyone who is a fan of Linnea Quigley or low budget horror, in general to check out this flick if you can find it. I hear it's out of print. But if you can find it, GET IT! It's great and you won't regret it. Despite what the other people say. 9 out of 10! Great fun!!
