A slick, entertaining horror sit-com.
29 February 2000 | by (Berkeley, CA) – See all my reviews

This film manages to strike a very tricky balance between humor and suspense. It's funny and tense all at the same time, from start to finish.

It's visually appealing, with interesting characters, and high production values. The acting is uniformly superb, and the plot manages to incorporate good, old fashioned suspense traditions and tropes while remaining fresh and interesting.

If you get a chance to see this, do.
