The Lovely Drew Barrymore
26 March 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Heather Leary (Drew Barrymore) lives in the suburb and loves to read Tales from the Crypt. While walking through the woods in the neighborhood of her house, she hears a woman screaming underground. She tells her parents but they believe it is fruit of her imagination. Heather sneaks out her room in the middle of the night and discloses the secret about the scream.

Watching "The Screaming Woman" is 2009, the greatest attraction is undoubtedly the eleven year-old Drew Barrymore. The young actress has a great performance in this good tale of Ray Bradbury, actually one of the best in this how. My vote is eight.
