Rating 1.0 The Bottom of the B Barrell Movie Lover: from MIDDLE VILLAGE, NY US -- January, 7, 2011

I beg to differ with some reviewers who awarded this film as high a rating as they did. It has a B plot, B acting, and its boring.


Rating 2.0 Midnight Warning bit of a snore Movie Lover: from Pittsburgh, PA US -- July, 8, 2005

If one wants to follow a very talkative, two-or-three scene story which reads more like a stage play, so be it. It is an interesting mystery for what it's worth, but the mortuary scene is so ridiculously silly and stupid: "Eeeeeeenid." This is a fun movie for kids having a weekend sleepover if they can wade through the plodding first half - rather reminds me of the sort of late-night spooky mystery movies from that era shown on horror-host TV.
