A great film that is suspenseful, full of vengeance and attitude.
30 October 1999 | by hanoirocksSee all my reviews

A drifter of sorts comes into town and grips the minds of a local diner's occupants. He wreaks havoc on the people who he holds captive. Acted beautifully. One of those films where the character is played so brilliantly that you hate him from the start. Check this one out!
