The naysayers must have seen a different film than I did. This is a scary movie. Stephen Dorff is excellent as the manical killer (You know it right off so this is no give away). Denis Quaid and Sharon are just fine as the Parents. This play on every fear you've ever had about moving to a strange country town. The Devil's Throat scene is nerve racking and the ending is very frightening. I think everyone today has become jaded and wants more and better monsters. Monsters who are people are always scarier...and this one delivers. The swimming pool will get you, too. Julliet Lewis is a strange character. I think she (and a lot of the town's people) knew about Dorff's character all along. They were too afraid to do anything about it.
