Did You Know?

To prepare for the role of Bicycle Pete the abductor, actor David Morse visited and spent some time in an institution for the criminally insane.See more »
Anachronisms: In the opening scene, shot across the bridge into the village, across the bottom of the screen are the words "Shade Gap, PA, 1966." Right above those words is a grey pickup truck parked in a driveway - a 1968 Ford F100. To the right, almost totally obscured by bushes, you can see the tail lights of a Chevy Blazer.See more »

A very fine all-around movie, 24 September 2001
Author: Tom Hull ( from Merriam, Kansas

I missed out on this true story when it actually occurred, but I feel fairly confident in saying that the producer, writer, and director added very little, if any, "fictional fluff". The movie starts off by showing us the setting and most of the main characters. Everyone and everything looks real and believable; almost always a good indication that the viewer is in for an entertaining movie. And that is certainly the case here. Once the abduction occurs, the director skillfully keeps the interest nonstop and makes us very reluctant to get up and go to the fridge or anywhere else. There are solid performances by the supporting cast; the usual flawless performance we have come to expect from Megan Follows; and a superb performance by David Morse.
