30 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was around when this movie was made and yes it is rough and amateurish, but it was fun to make and people have to start somewhere. It was made in a small town in NC and the sets were local. Many of the locals were in it. I saw it from start to finish and still have the poster from the original. The lead was a tool salesman with boatloads of money who decided to become an actor and that may have something to do with his lack of acting ability. The director and writer was just beginning and had talent which was beginning to emerge. I enjoyed the movie for its genre, homage to the older horror films and its familiarity to me.
