User Reviews

A movie that will surprise you
29 October 1998 | by eireguy08See all my reviews

I saw this movie over two years ago and it still sticks in my

mind. It is a movie which due to the setting and the

relatively unknown actors gives this movie a sense of

originality.

The movie has plenty of scary moments and in a lot of places is

very funny (whether always intended or not). If you are

looking for something different, then go and see this one.

You will be pleasantly suprised.
