FREAKED me out BIG time!!!
29 March 2000 | by JammiesSee all my reviews

I saw this movie a few years ago, I think when it was a new release on VHS... rented it with family/friends without knowing ANYTHING about it... I get scared easily in movies, and this movie absolutely petrified me... I was too scared to go to sleep that night, and didn't want to even leave the room because I was so frightened. I can't even remember if it was a decent movie, but I think that the suspense element must've worked if it freaked me out so much. See it... see if you're less of a wimp than I am... : )
