Good Movie, Great Acting, 18 June 2008
Author: Amelia Watson from United States

When I decided to watch this movie I thought it would be a waste of my time but its wasn't. It isn't Oscar material but it was very enjoyable. I got really into the movie and into the characters. The actress who plays SueAnne was the perfect evil "innocent" girl and the story line had me interested the entire time. You also felt like you understood Dennis and his view on the evens that occurred. It had enough plot twist to keep you guessing put not too many that you got confused. The ending was also satisfying but not really what you expected. Over all, I would say this was is great and you should watch it when you get the chance, and would recommend it to my friends as well.
