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>

Why is this unavailable???
1 March 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw 'Intensity'on TV. Of course it was cut to ribbons*.That is, if the IMDb run time of 186 minutes is correct.(*Why do they insist on doing that?) It was still excellent. Molly Parker, one of the most adventurous actresses working today, was terrific. John C. McGinley usually an actor who does a fine job in a lesser part, was mesmerising. Suspense builds up all the way. I went out and got the book, great read that made me realise what a good job the screenwriters had done. Wanted to buy the full length movie, according to IMDb it's unavailable!! This is a great movie, only made in 1997, so where is it? Somebody put the uncut version on DVD, PLEASE!!
