shameful!
10 August 2006 | by sharkey000See all my reviews

This movie was so gripping i kept switching the channel, alternating between 'shame' and 'the deadly silence'. Enough said really.

The thing that surprised me most was how innocent Fairuza Balk looked...i am of course comparing her to what she was in 'the craft'. she actually looked quite pretty in this movie, though she does have rather a large mouth!

All in all definitely shameful. Don't bother unless you're a hardcore fan of hers.

Why does this comment have to be 10 lines? I really don't have much to say about this !
