A surprisingly engaging story on a very low budget
8 April 2002 | by ccmiller1492See all my reviews

A surprisingly engaging story on a very low budget works well for the most part. However, the striking presence of Geoffrey Land as the mysterious Indian kipnapper is largely wasted. The movie would have profitted a great deal by dwelling more on the the girl victim and Land's enigmatic character before the obligatory denoument.
