a family dinner that gets odd
27 January 2006 | by (fife, scotland) – See all my reviews

i seen the film last night, it freaked me out, it looks so real and is one of those films where you don't go for a pee until the end, i thought it was real happenings until the end when the characters names came up which confused me. so id like to know.. has there actually been a real abduction of the McPherson's and this was just a live remake of the what happened or is it just a load of bull? because you only ever here of things like this from Americans, abductions always seem to happen in America, however if anyone knows if this is a film based on true events and the McPherson's are actually missing, please post a return with info.. thanks!
