Good flick
23 December 2001 | by (Palma de Mallorca, Spain) – See all my reviews

Very interesting and compelling premise (four friends lost amidst a dangerous Chicago suburb who are being stalked after witnessing a murder). The pace of the film never slows a bit. Great performances by all actors, specially Leary. Highly recommended
