Tense low-budget horror
7 January 2001 | by (London) – See all my reviews

While sometimes the low budget is all too apparent, overall the film works well and has excellent moments. I thought it was chilling right from the opening scene, in which a little girl calmly murders her own mother. An excellent twist at the end really got me thinking.
