Excellent suspense thriller!
20 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

No, this is not an academy award winner but it will DEFINITELY keep you on the edge of your seat....... which is more than I can say for a LOT of "suspense thrillers". Yeah, it's even got some bad acting and some corny parts. Audra Lindley (Mrs. Roper - Three's company) did a great job. Check her out in the "Office" scene!

The ending, although somewhat predictable, is STILL major-league scary!

What makes this movie frightening, at least for me, anyway, is that cults like this really do exist!

If you're a horror movie buff, you owe it to yourself to check this one out when it comes to cable every so often! It's not on VHS or DVD. I'm hoping it's released sooner or later!
