That movie totally freaked me out
5 September 2003 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

When I saw that movie a few years ago it totally freaked me out. Which is surprising, as I had thought I had become immune to horror movies. I am surprised the movie got such a bad score, because for me it totally worked. Watch at night, alone.....
