An O.K. Thriller
25 April 1999 | by (Tokyo, Japan) – See all my reviews

I've yet to see a movie made from a Dean Koontz novel that comes close to capturing the thrills and suspense he creates with the written word. While this movie is good enough to stand on its own, I think I'll stick with his novels.
