Goofs

Jim Wheeler holds up a Polaroid camera, telling Gilbert that he uses it in photojournalism. Polaroid photos were generally low-quality, very small, short-lived images used for more casual snapshots, they have never been used for photojournalism. Photojournalism requires photos that will last a long time, can be easily archived, resized and that are very clear, so Polaroids used in photojournalism is an idea that would be considered very bad.

Could have done so much more!
14 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

I just found about this movie in the pass week, it looked and sounded good.

As it was TV movie, I didn't expect much from it at all.

I thought was really good but they could dose so much more with it, it had bigger budget then it did!

I did the kids a little creepy at times, I don't know if was acting or not but some seem a Little robotic at times

There rest of the movie, had something really intense moments and I wasn't to sure we're the story was going end.

I not sure yet, if I liked the ending or not , I found it a bit odd.

That was the only odd thing in the movie, I felt the music was 9ut of place, It felt to upbeat and took the dark feel away,

Otherwise it was decent for 70s TV movie
