The drama was over the top, but its cheesy feel made it enjoyable!

5.5/10. This old made for television movie isn't too bad. Cloris Leachman gives a good performance. Fairly suspenseful, and it has a pretty good twist to the story.

This was originally a made-for-TV movie until some genius got the bright idea to distribute this as a stand alone film. Don't waste your time, your money, your eye sight, your breath on this crap. So blatanly obvious and predictable and the acting is so cheesy and :mad: errrrrrrr it's just irritating to even think about.
