Very Scary!!!
29 September 2001 | by (Elkhart, IN) – See all my reviews

I am always getting alot of negative feedback about this movie but come on people!!! A Stephen King flick starring Robert Englund? You can't get garbage from them. They assembled a very dark and horrific tale about a killer laundry machine. I know, when one thinks, "killer laundry machine", they will probably laugh right off the bat. WATCH THE MOVIE.

I would say that the reason why I think this movie is scary is because of the violent death scenes and the fact that there is very little humor throughout. You think, "killer laundry machine, what a joke!!" The movie says, "hold the phone, this is no joke". If my short review hasnt convinced a true horror fan that hasnt seen this yet to watch it, then just think, King and Englund. You refuse to watch it from there then you are NOT a true horror fan!! Bottom line. Give this one a chance. Please email me if you watched because of my suggestion.
