User Reviews

intriguing premise, but doesn't hit the mark
29 January 2003 | by Special-K88See all my reviews

Well-crafted thriller that plays upon night terrors and the old 'monster in the closet' legend. An ambitious young psychology student is occasionally frightened by memories of old childhood nightmares. She, along with a group of strangers, eventually come together believing that they were all traumatized as children by mysterious night demons, the very same demons who may be returning to complete some unfinished business. Occasionally spooky thriller holds your interest the way it should, but it never really tops its effective opening sequence, or gets informative enough to be really satisfying. **
