Adventure and suspense build to a though-provoking climax in this powerfully gripping film.

Goofs

During the chase scene towards the railway trestle the road appears one minute to have new yellow striping and the next cut having no striping. As the yellow striping don't have the old white ones underneath, the road must have been unmarked and painted during filming. The USA was converting their road markings from white to yellow during this period. See more »

Quotes

Girl at teen center: That's right, Jenny, in a way it *is* free, what I mean is it doesn't cost anything but your life.
Jenny: That sounds pretty expensive.
Girl at teen center: Well it might seem that way, until you realize that you're living with God who created you. The God who cares for you more than any other person could. That you're letting Him take over. There's no way you could lose.

Good for a Cult Following
17 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

I was forced to watch this whole series of films as a young child and I was told they were REAL! Talk about child abuse. I would have been less frightened of Dracula or Frankenstein. This series is only good for people who believe in this ridiculousness and who want to indoctrinate their children into believing the same. Besides the obvious issues associated with brainwashing and indoctrination, there's also the bad acting, bad writing, and BAD "special effects". They are just all around terrible, terrible movies. Yes, believable (and horrifying) to a kid, but I can't imagine a grown-up buying into this shlock. Although, I must say, that I would be interested in seeing them today, as an adult. They might have a certain midnight/cult movie feel to them.
