If you like The Twilight Zone, you'll love this...
8 December 2000 | by a-jkastlSee all my reviews

As an avid fan of The Twilight Zone, this movie kept my attention with the flowing plot and the great actors which never fall into the melodramatic or wink at the audience. With an unexpected twistful ending, it falls right up there with the rest of the old episodes I love.
