sick, twisted, and delightfully entertaining
7 August 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the request of the director, and man was it a shocker... never in my life would I have thought a low budget indy horror film would deliver... but this one did... and then some. I sometimes find that the best films are done with low budgets because they seem more real, and this was too real. Unfortunately this film is only available at thier website but I highly recommend you check it out.

Great Film Glen
