Bitter-sweet romance horror...
20 June 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I first saw this film in high school, and fell in love with it, Personally I believe it was just as good as the short story..maybe even a little better. Twisted and different for most films, many emotions overwhelmed me when I saw this film for the first time. Though this film is only 27 minutes long..it gives you the perfect feel for the character, and the story is told well. If you are able to find this movie for sale or rent..I say watch it, it is well worth your time..... 10 out of 10 stars!! great job guys!!!
