The FIRST time you watch it. The second time is just boooring..

Shannen Doherty I must say, is a good actress with great skills, that's why I think that she deserves better then this.

The movie is is not a ripoff, but it just hasn't got the spark. It's definatelly NOT a movie of Shannen's, NOT her style of movies, even she does make good thrills.

Nope I see Shannen in comedies, where you can laugh out loud when showing her boobs and wearing a tight, short skirt which shows her incredible nice legs. Ok well she can do that in a thriller too, but still she's a "Jay and Silent Bob" -kinda girl, who screams to the director to shut up.

But the movie was really good, actually. More then what I expected from the actors.

7 out of 10 stars.
