Storyline

Daniel returns to his family's mansion for the holidays along with his girlfriend Susanne. His family's seemingly-utopian existence is overshadowed by not only the death of Daniel's brother, but also by Daniel's failure to live up to his brother's potential. However, this quickly becomes inconsequential, as blood-thirsty killers soon show up.. Written by Dave Smith <dave@stat.colostate.edu>

Great B-Movie
9 September 2001 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

Common guys, don't critic B-movies and rate them on the same

scale then the Big Picture, i mean common, they don't have the

same budget, same cast... I think some of you just should take a

handy cam and try to make a little home movie with $500 budget,

then show it to strangers and ask them to put a critic on it, you'll

see how it feel! That was a pretty good B-Movie, the cast was not

that bad, Alyssa was pretty good, sexy as always, Ice-T was a

mean guy like in most of the movies... but it was something

interesting, I don't feel like I wasted my money to watch it! If you do

think that, never rent B-Movies anymore then my friends... they are

pretty much always like this! End of the line I give a 6 for that nice

movie!
