10 March 2002 | by (Maine, USA) – See all my reviews

As a plotline, the writer had a good idea, but the end result is a big old Stink Bomb. There are no likeable characters in this movie, bad acting even by veteran Sean Young and the props used were rather funny at times. Look for the woman in the door way holding the shotgun, at the end of the scene as she backs into the house, you see that the barrel isn't just plugged, but a solid piece of steel.

The last 3 minutes of the movie are the best, wrapping things up in an intriguing way. Too bad there wasn't more of that throughout the film.
