Beyond our expectations...
23 May 2001 | by (West Bend, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

Because the movie was considered to be a low budget film, we went to see it on opening night and were very surprised. The movie was very good. We had the opportunity to watch part of the taping and meet Darren Burrows and other sound crew members. We thought the movie kept you guessing the entire time. Despite the lack of Hollywood studio scenes and fancy special effects, the movie never lost its grip. It was also exciting to see the various familiar sights around Milwaukee and the local establishments mentioned in the credits. Great Job!!! We give this movie a rating of 8 out of 10.....
