I loved it!
25 August 1999 | by melissa-45See all my reviews

I loved this movie! I had already read the book by Lavyrle Spencer and when I heard the movie was going to be on, I watched it. There are some slight differences between the two, but I absolutely loved it! I can't wait until they make a movie based on The Hellion!
