This film isn't trying to be something it's not - and when taken in this light, as a B horror movie, it's great. These films are very niche and are made for particular audiences. The directing pretty much sucked a big one, and the script was mediocre, and the relationship between Sherriff Downs and his wife seemed completely unrealistic (no chemistry and - well - she was simply too hot for him!), it wasn't bad. The son and daughter were great, the set design and makeup was beautiful, and there were a few genuine chills. Take it for what it is, a fun B movie.
