VERY SCARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
28 April 2002 | by STACK-85See all my reviews

I don't know what the hell the other critics on this movie are talking about but I loved this movie!! I thought there could have been more blood and more plot, but all in all I thought this was a very good movie.

If you've got some time to kill, go ahead.
