Very good, low-budget thriller
9 October 2000 | by (The Hague, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie is about a female sketch-artist who is called out to a small rural town where a little girl has been kidnapped and may give a description of the perpetrator. The sheriff suspects he may have been involved in more, and the sketch-artist must confront horrors from her own past.

This is actually a pretty good, low-budget thriller. Sean Young is great, and William Moses (of Perry Mason fame) is sympathetic.

The movie's main achievement is avoiding the traps of improbability (there's only one) and cheap scares, where lesser well-thought out movies go for the Michael Myers/Jason Voorhees thing of the killer being everywhere.

Sean Young acts well and believably - what happened to her career, though, which seemed so promising at the time she had a small role in Wall Street and Blade Runner. She needs to pick movies with more potential.
