Justified criticism

Huge disappointment. Usually Lance Henriksen can offer some redeeming qualities to even the worst script as he did in Stone Cold. BUT, no one could save this movie. Continuity has been ignored with a passion. The story is WEAK and remains unjustified right through the final credits. This is not even a "rainy day watch." This is movie for laying down and avoiding. AND; as far as the DVD being "digitally re-mastered;" I fear the master was beyond help, because even state of the art home theatre could not make the audio enjoyable. The next time you want visitors to leave, fire this movie up, and you'll have your privacy in no time.
