thriller!
15 May 2003 | by (melbourne, australia) – See all my reviews

I am not a film student, critic or expert in any way. I'm just a guy who watched and enjoyed this little known tele-movie and found it to be very suspenseful. Some of the camera shots reminded me of techniques used by spielberg in gremlins and the music was constantly building an air of tension a bit like in the excorsist. There was something almost hitchcock-like about it. Some aspects of the movie were a bit stupid but i found it to be a very suspensful thriller and would definately recommend it. It also has barry bostwick in it who always makes me laugh because he reminds me of the mayor from spin city.
