Little girls can never wait to grow up
16 May 2002 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

A young girl, looking for adventure with the opposite sex, develops a long distance crush on a handsome stranger. This leads to the man noticing her and her mom which, instead of being a nice meeting of friends, winds up putting both in danger. Good, nerve wracking chiller containing a very evil, totally sinister killer.
