Outstanding ...
2 February 2004 | by themoversincSee all my reviews

Great little film, very suspenseful, it will keep you at the edge of your seat. Very well directed by Nicole Barnette. Out standing performance's by Liz Mamana and Brien Varady as Mary and Patrick Maloney. I hope to see more films by Ms. Barnette in the future.
