My Thoughts:

I think the main reason I rated this movie so low was cause of the actors. Not that they couldn’t act, they just didn’t seem to be the right age. One of the main characters Michael is playing a teenager but he looks like he is in his 40s. So yeah, that bothered me a bit.

Other than that it was a pretty decent movie, easy to figure out who the killer was and great that it had Linnea Quigley in it.
