Not the best film ,but-
22 September 2007 | by board-5See all my reviews

Finally Yancy Butler is very good in this film,and she's ex-husband-played by Nick Mancuso too.There are some good ,and some very used twists in the film.Finally this film is better than I waited.Somewhy the twists looks good in a film,like this,cause this film is not a television-film.Womens could be very dangerous sometimes,and sometimes I can understand them.The best thing in the film is Yancy Butler,she can play the crazy women without too much problems,better than Thomas Jane in Punisher with he's one face,but maybe not perfect.Unfortunately the film has not REALLY new message and never REALLY scary
