The "New" PRC -- a lot like the old one
7 February 2004 | by goblinhairedguySee all my reviews

Not a bad programmer by PRC standards (or the "New" PRC, as the title card purports), thanks to eccentric characters provided by Martin (Detour) Goldsmith, some effective performances, and a surprisingly stately setting. Veda Ann Borg, so memorable in many small but offbeat roles, gets to carry a whole movie for a change, but it's the creepy supporting cast that makes this a worthwhile time-passer. The obscure director Keays does a serviceable job, but shows no visual flair, which could have helped, and the mystery isn't terribly mysterious at all.
