Post E.T. Drew
23 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The setting for this looks a lot like the California neighborhood where E. T. came to Earth. That said, we have eleven year old Drew Barrymore, playing an impressionable girl who reads Tales from the Crypt and seek out adventure. One day, while biking through the woods, she hears screaming. It seems to be coming out of the ground. As is often the case, the adults are unable or unwilling to listen to her. She teams with a little slug of a male friend, who is too lazy to even dig. There is a red herring when the two of them are chased off the property by its owner. There are clues along the way. I think the only real point of contention I have is at the very end. If you watch this, ask yourself if the result would be realistic. Overall, it's pretty suspenseful but the acting is really bad.
