OK for a formula-driven psycho-next-door film., 9 March 2003
Author: john in missouri from United States

About the only creative twist in this film is that the psycho next door is a decorated, respected fireman.

Get this bit of originality: he also spouts a few Bible verses along the way. Wow, impressive.

That said, there are bigger wastes of time out there, and it's good for a bit of entertainment if there's nothing else on TV. I wouldn't pay to rent it, though.

The only thought-provoking feature of the film has to do with the usefulness of firearms in the hands of good citizens.
