Not bad......
18 October 1998 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie, on cable, and have to say that the turns and twists of this trilogy, actually, had me on the edge of my seat. I was impressed how this film, while not an award winner by any means, was able to keep me in suspense. One thing though...I don't understand why they had to keep abusing the dog in the 2nd tale....It was a bit disturbing.......
