well-done and suspenseful
28 December 1999 | by jjell260See all my reviews

Although this movie develops gradually, it makes up for it in suspense. The viewer will easily know the identity of the villain, yet the plot draws to a satisfying conclusion. Place this one alongside of WAIT UNTIL DARK. Worth watching.
