Dumb
6 October 2002 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

What a dumb movie. These people had about 5 chances to disable the this "Vicious" inept killer and chose to run every time so he could have another chance at them (after the next commercial). This one really taxes one's patience. After a while I was routing for the killer, knowing it couldn't happen in such a perfect fairytale world, just to end it.
