one of my all time favorites
9 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great dark comedy. Unlike most of Hollywood's big hits it actually has a plot. Nice twists and turns keeps you wondering. The actors are not the big million dollar over-rated ones that you see in absolutely everything. Most people I mention this movie to have never even heard of it. This is not some cheesy, gory horror movie. It falls more under the Suspense genre. This is the perfect movie if you are tired of the same old, played out, predictable crap that is churned out by the Hollywood machine such as all those awful zombie movies.The only bad thing about this movie is that it is not out on DVD yet only VHS. Go get this movie today!!! It will be well worth your time.
