this movie is freaky, 10 August 2002
Author: Sunshine14clr

i watched this not to long ago and i was horrified. this lewis snow character is really pshychopathic and freaky by all means. even though ellen hayward is probably a fictional character (but probably based on a real woman who was raped) i still feel bad for her. jere burns is the perfect choice for the "bad guy". 7 stars out of 10.
