Larry drake
5 July 2013 | by kairinglerSee all my reviews

Larry Drake is one of the best creepy killer's ever,, aka the Dentist,, well you got Paulina Porizkova running around the movie,, that's always nice,, Juergen Pruchnow investigating,, what's not to like.. I like everything that this movie had to offer, I think a lot of people were expecting like cinema art or something,, all I wanted is what exactly the movie itself present,, shock and awe,, blood, guts,, and a killer chasing around a pretty girl..i was also pleased with the plot line of the film, the location shooting, and the setting. Larry drake just plays the creepiest of killer's something about him that makes him the perfect monster or serial killer,, I hope he doesn't get typecast in that role but if he does,, we know that we will have an entertaining bloody killer on our hands for years to come no matter what he does.
