Availibilty?
3 January 2007 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie as a kid by accident, watching over my neighbor's house and it stuck in my mind for years, but i couldn't remember the name of the movie or of the actors. Working in a video store i would spend entire shifts going over the Sci-Fi section trying to find this gem but to no avail. I guess this really is the age of information when you can find childhood memories with a click of a mouse. (Thanks IMDb for your power search). Anyway, does anyone know how to get hold of a copy? I guess it's never come out for rental... or has it? Overall, great movie, great idea, compelling and interesting, the acting was decent and the movie's style was dark and oblique.
