Grrrrreat!

As usual I was flipping thru the channels and came across this movie. I came in about 1/3 after it started and was almost hooked. I recognized Melissa Gilbert, Thaao Penghlis, and Diane Ladd, and thought it would have to be an interesting movie.

Well I was right. This was a really interesting movie. It's about this woman, Gilbert, trying to piece her life together, and then some weird things start happening. She thinks she sees her "doppleganger" walking around the same town she is, and is completely scared since she doesn't know what to make of the situation.

After some well needed therapy, the pieces all start to fall into place and she realizes what's really going on. The root of her evil goes all the way back to when she was a very little girl, traveling with her mom and her twin sister on this road while it is pouring rain. Gilbert soon gets thrown from the car and falls into a lake. From then on, her life is never the same.

In the end there is a nice little happy ending to the story/movie. Great acting, great everything. Watch this movie. You will like it. Now if you don't like it, that's okay. I give this between a 4 to 5 out of 5 stars.
