User Reviews

 
Predictable but enjoyable nonetheless
15 October 2018 | by aprilsfriendorinSee all my reviews

Out of all the suspenseful TV movies out there, this is probably one of the better ones I've seen. The camera work is a little shaky at times, but the acting is good and the plot is intriguing enough. Give it a shot.
