Great movie
28 November 2000 | by (Hyderabad, India) – See all my reviews

I don't remember the last time I have been sitting glued to my seat through the length of a movie on TV. I switch channels often, but this movie made me stay with the channel till it was over. It was a wonderful movie. The depiction of the struggle of Krista was so realistic. And this movie was more exciting than the slasher movies which usually center around school/ college students. Hope that people come up with more such movies.
