Scary Twins and Teachers take a bump too !
9 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Stars: Jennifer Blanc and Kelly B. Eviston.

This is a really good drama and then evolves into a very evil horror. Makes twins seem justified,Then totally uncalled for actions to keep a secret. To seethe acting chops of ladies listed and Sam Ball as the sheriff was a joy,And even bigger surprise in what was assumed in Indy Horror.

Congrats to director Sage Bannick, You pulled off a good scare.

*** of 5 for girl/girl.

*** of 5 for 'Six Degrees Of Separation' to Jennifer Alba.

*** of 5 for Sheer,White Knuckle violence.
