Oh dear
13 May 2020 | by linda-plant2See all my reviews

The lead actress Cynthia Watros appears to have a lengthy resume in her acting career, I can only assume her ability improved after this film. Like most 'made for tv' movies, the constant beat of the background music kept the suspense high - which is more than could be said for the acting. Thankfully the inclusion of Frances Fisher provided the professionalism element. Perhaps the script didn't help. Having the lead character burst into the scene where the medics were frantically treating her niece, and screaming across the bed to "do something NOW" to help her, was absolutely laughable. As if. What the hell did she think they were doing ?????

No, this is one not to waste 2 hours of your life on.
