(around the 42-minute mark) As Liz is seducing Thomas out in the field, the position of her hair changes between shots. Sometimes parts of it are down in front of her face, and sometimes it's all combed off to the side. See more »

User Reviews

 
An original idea, funny yet achieves a creepy vibe
5 July 2019 | by storyteller-69195See all my reviews

Movie gets 8 stars for being an original concept alone. But the execution lives up to those 8 stars, as well.

Bare bones outline is in the synop. But they give us some "stock" characters working in summer stock, yet those characters take some very interesting turns.

Great acting by most every one, including the female lead and Cary Elwes, who has to act like a bad actor.

Funny, surprising, and yes, as noted, achieves a very creepy (and strangely satisfying) vibe at the end. Well worth your time.
