George Baxt scripted this extraordinarily good chiller from a story by Milton Subotsky, who also co-produced.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It sports what may be the best, most terrifying (happy) ending ever seen in a genre fear fest - a genuine tour-de-force so powerful in its imagery that it almost single-handedly erases any reservations one has about the rest of the movie."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"It may seem a somewhat trite and corny affair when compared with today's definition of 'horror movies,' but this one has the market cornered on atmosphere."
‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
"Not as scary as you'd like"
‑ Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International
"Cheesy horror that looks like a TV show."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
