I'm Not Impressed
27 February 2000 | by kalthorSee all my reviews

The movie starts with a murder and you know through the whole movie who the murderers are. You find yourself waiting for the daughter to find out who killed her father. Another weird thing is the dead father, is he haunting the lake or what?
