Decent actors, but....
26 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

too many problems with the way this story was presented; it is hard to believe it was based on truth, and even more difficult to develop empathy for Tracey Gold's character, and the Kate Jackson character, as evil Mom accusing her daughter of satanic rituals is way too over the top to be believable.

Lifetime movies can work if they have a message, a true story which is concisely presented, or something which the audience has experienced, and may relate to, or learn from. This falls into none of those categories. Kate Jackson, a decent TV actress, can usually save the film (she was in a film with Chad Allen, where he is an ex-con, and she actually made the movie watchable). Not so in this case, do not waste your time.
