Entertaining Film!
23 November 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you are looking for a film to keep you interested, this is the film for you. You will see lots of lightning, thunder and a very old New Orleans home and antiques. A local area is preparing for a very bad storm and they are starting to sandbag and are getting assistance from convicts. Melissa Gilbert, (Cassie Broadbeck),"Ice House",'89, was put in a position to protect her daughters from wild convicts who escaped. Cassie even told one of the convicts that she would offer herself for sexual favors if they would only leave her two daughters alone and not abuse them. However, the daughters were very willing to cook up some chili and a few tuna fish sandwiches for the convicts pleasure! Thomas Cavanaugh (Simpson),"Something More",'99, played a great role as the gang leader who was mean right down to his toes! This is a very entertaining film and worth watching!
