We don't need this!
20 March 2002 | by (Brasilia, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Ludicruous, almost amateur thriller about a killer (Drake) who gets out of the prison just to terrorize a young woman (Bako) who is the only survivor of the last crime of the bad guy. Weak plot, predictable all the way, extremely boring and with some campy performances, especially Drake, absolutely unconvincing and far - fetched. Don't lose your time and your money. I give this a 3 (three).
