Far from perfect, but in its own flawed way it is perfect to me, entering my life the summer before my senior year in high school and making an impact on me that has increased, rather than lessened, in the nearly two decades since it was made.

90s popcorn thriller that never clicked, mainly due to its odd choices. The film is quick and has some solid moments, the nut house is one of them. The rapid… More
