Twisted Fun!
10 August 2002 | by chatykatSee all my reviews

This movie was so funny, and scary. They used the right actors for this movie, Andrew McCarthy is freakishly scary and he plays the part so well. I would highly recommend this movie to a friend who needs a good laugh. It's a perfect Comedy and Mystery movie.
