Fresh approach for TV horror genre
12 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While, by necessity, made for TV movies tend to formulaic, this entry in the horror genre was remarkably fresh in many ways.

Set in the gorgeous New Mexican rural areas it is a film that touches all the usual buttons but does so in a way that enables lead Anthony Zerbe to showcase something of his prodigious talent.

There is some attention paid to local custom that helps to allow the viewer to forget for a time that he or she is watching a television show and to get some of that ambiance one usually only finds in a theater.

I haven't seen it since it debuted in 1991 and so would like to allow someone who is able to view it to also have the opportunity to do as I did and savor the film's twists and turns without any other description.

Are there better thrillers out there? Of course but this is a little gem from television that we are unlikely to see the likes of again any time soon.
