Great Movie
29 February 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I too saw this movie by accident while I was waiting for a computer program to load...was hooked 5 minutes into and ended staying up until 3am watching it. Being Canadian I felt a little closer to it as I vaguely remember it but grew up with the name EATON.

I only wish I could watch it again and see the beginning that I didn't get to concentrate on.

I found it to be dark and disturbing with a certain innocence....if that makes any sense.

The acting ranged from fair to very good with Andrew, Nancy and Nancy's mother acting very well.
