Very enjoyable presentation, but a little gruesome
5 January 1999 | by (Leesburg, VA, USA) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie. The characters were portrayed interestingly and the story moved along nicely. There were not many surprises, and some of the more gruesome scenes were stretched out longer than necessary. The main attraction was the quirkiness of the characters.
