Truly a "trickle-down-your-spine" movie for all horror/suspense fans...
4 March 1999 | by (Uppsala/Sweden) – See all my reviews

This clip is not the most blood-gushing, intriguing, chainsawwaving movie of all times, but it has an eerie vibe, highlighted by small pieces of morphing fx here and there. I found myself grasping for air and moving around because of the nervous feeling it brought to me. The actors are great and when the movie has brought you into a false state of calm, it hits you in the face with really cool shock fx. I was a nervous wreck from the 10th minute to the end... Do not miss this one, and don't let the TV thing or the "Teleplay" scare you off. The movie itself will scare you s**tless :) Cheerz Teddybeer
