A Weird, but clever movie.
7 July 2001 | by (Woodinville, Washington) – See all my reviews

You have always heard of small towns that are said to be the perfect American town. Well, Black River is a too perfect town. Everybody is nice. Anybody that is mean they get rid of. A perfect American town except there is something wrong with the town. There is a "big brother" watching you at every corner. You can never leave the town because "big brother" will not let you. It is a good movie. If you like weird movies then you should see this one.
