Digging up Puppets!!!
26 July 2005 | by jkotynekSee all my reviews

I found this film to be a chilling thriller from das Vaterland! It blends the cautionary-tale-ingredients of Friday-the-Thirteenth morality of if you have sex in the woods at night, you can get hurt, or killed! Or worse! The actor who plays Ben is like a mildly mentally challenged Billy Zane. But he displays an air of innocence as well.
