Storyline

Chyna Shepherd is a twenty-six-year-old psychology student who survived an extremely troubled past. While visiting Laura Templeton's house, a farm in the Napa Valley, a serial killer named Edgler Foreman Vess breaks into the house, taking Laura and killing her parents. Chyna survives and manages to follow him. In doing so, she learns of Vess's captive: a young, innocent girl, Ariel, trapped in Vess's home far from the Napa Valley. Chyna feels a great sense of responsibility for this girl, and she travels deeper into her nightmare. Written by Mike Yagnow <cato@frontiernet.net>

Extraordinarily Intense...
7 March 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This film may give assumption that it's a corny thriller but people thinking this would be easily mistaken!. This film is INTENSE!!!!. I know thrillers that capture you for the most part of action scenes, but this film captures you throughout the entire ordeal. And it is an ordeal. Even the ordeals each character experiences... it's suspenseful, extremely thrilling, 110% capturing, and when it comes down to it... just INTENSE. It fit's it's name to a T.

Not ever have I seen a thriller that is a TV movie ever be so intense. This is a trillion times worse than your American Psycho... this murderer is a mass slaughterer with the most insanity I've ever seen a human have in a thriller film. You sometimes wonder if this person is human. A glazed insane gloom look inside the eyes of this murderer is enough to make your hair stick up off of your arm. John does a BRILLIANT job!.

A brilliant thriller... check it out if you haven't already.
