Better than Wild Things
27 August 2002 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Dina Meyer wipes the table clean with much more effective acting than Denise Richards in a simular film by the plot Wild Things. Audience believes truly in the situation at hand, until it completely flips around. STF does not bore at any time. Excellent entertainment! Highly recommended to anyone not willing to know the ending by a lucky guess.
