Audience Reviews for Never Take Sweets from a Stranger (Never Take Candy from a Stranger)

Simply the most terrifying moment for any parent is this film. Moving to a town that is run by a wealthy family, the newly hired principal and his wife think all is well. But their daughter has the misfortune of playing near the estate of a killer child molester. This movie, despite its lame title, is so gripping, so moving and so engrossing I can't begin to over recommend it. Patrick Allen acting as the school principal does an outstanding job of doing what every husband and father should do to protect his family from the outrageous antics of a town bought by weathy degenerates. This is no ordinary film. Watch it. Rent it. Buy it. See it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ircGOx-rjC8 copy and past this to your address box. The trailer is stunning. SEE ALSO my BLOG for more.
