Tragedy in the family
15 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though the ending wasn't at all surprising, Lynn Bari did an excellent job as the grieving mother. I said the ending wasn't surprising, but the way that Dev was actually killed was QUITE surprising! I was expecting Sam to do the killing, not the person that actually pulled the trigger. I'm sure it would be hard to face the death of our son, no matter how evil it was.

I'd say the Greta Lane woman was pretty stupid. I mean, this man had already killed a father and son, and now she was telling everything she knew. What did she think he was going to do? I KNEW as soon as she started confessing that her life was over. I KNEW he would shoot her and I was right!
