Very Entertaining Film
13 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Always like the great acting of Sean Young,(Gwen), and in this picture she does a fantastic job as an sketch artist along with some Spiritual Powers which help her seek out the EVIL that seems to haunt her and Brighton Hertford,(Bria), a little girl who has been abused and needs help. However, Gwen also has some hidden secrets in her past childhood which also seem to haunt her through out the picture. There is a great scene in the picture where Bria manages to hand Gwen a gun under the table and all Hell breaks loose. Gwen does draw a wrong sketch of a man that Bria does not seem to recognize and it does give the film more suspense. If you want to get away from watching the World News for awhile, this is a great film that will entertain and will keep your interest right to the very END. Enjoy!
