23 October 2000 | by (pittsburgh, pa) – See all my reviews

What a great movie. I loved it! I just recently decided to write a review on it. I was never really going to watch it, but got hooked within the first 10 minutes. I thought the acting was superb, the story line was great, and the movie over all freaked me out with all the suspense. if anyone ever finds out when it is coming back on tv, on any channel. please post the info. i really want to see it again. i liked the movie so much, i went out and bought the book. i read the novel and it too was great. excellent story.
