I must admit I believed this hoax at the beggining
9 June 1999 | by Against_The_GrainSee all my reviews

Ok I believed it at first. You see here in Chile, when this film was recently released, appeared a so-called UFOLOGIST in a TV show telling that this movie ( or whatever it is) was true, so I was dying to see it & comprobate it. When I saw this production, i was shocked at the beggining, but I realized then that it was a joke or hoax. It's impossible that a 16 years old kid could film scenes with that temper...my god neither a pro could film like that ! I must admit also that the performances of this movie was very variated. I must celebrate the incredible acting of the little girl ...it was awesome ! but another ones, like the black boyfriend of the McPherson sister or 1 of the brothers really sucked. But as the guy who commented this movie before me I have the same question : What in the world was this?
