Creepy, suspenseful, and unique...
21 May 2002 | by (Somersworth, NH) – See all my reviews

I had no idea what to expect when I borrowed this movie from a friend. I was pleasantly surprised. Despite a minimal budget, this movie delivers top-level drama and suspense. Kyle, Efram, and Shayne did a wonderful job of crafting a film that held my interest until its dramatic conclusion. Kyle gave a superb performance as the maladjusted "Alec". The images of the "dirty Santa" were completely disturbing, and caused a shiver to go down my spine. I really enjoyed Alec's quirkiness, which bordered on humorous in such instances as the tampon and cigarettes scene. Well done guys.
