It Was Okay
2 November 2000 | by cobractn2See all my reviews

It wasn't that bad. I think its okay I enjoyed it I think it had a pretty good story. I wouldn't pay more then a few bucks to rent it though. Its not really what I expected from a "horror" movie. If it had been edited for some mature content I think it could pass for a TV movie.
