Incredible Movie, Incredible Reality
15 December 2002 | by (Delaware, USA) – See all my reviews

I truly enjoyed this movie. It's absolutely unbelievable that this actually happened! As you sit watching the movie, you place yourself in the characters' places and wondering what you would do if this terrible story was happening to you. There's only so much that the police can do ... there's only so much that anyone can do. You never know who's living next-door. You can never tell who's psychotic or who has a few screws loose, and that's scary. This is a definite must-see for any diehard Lifetime viewer.
