If you're expecting a fast paced MTV style Platinum Dunes esque horror picture don't bother even renting this film. If however you grew up in or have an appreciation for movies made in the 1980's you may very well of found a perfect feature to sit down and watch whilst simultaniously experiencing a feeling harking back to the "good old days" when you didn't have to have a brutal kill before the opening credits just so the audience didn't get bored. Jocelin Donahue is superb as Samantha who obviously shouldn't have accepted the increasingly suspect babysitting job regardless of the payment. I really hope to see her in something else very soon.
But ultimately if you'd like that 80's feel that you haven't had since trawling your local video shop nearly twenty years ago looking for the one undiscovered classic that would be remebered as a classic of the genre, give this a try. I hope you won't be dissapointed.
Like any good horror there will be it's detractors, but the overwhelming feeling of dread that stays with you after the film is much more potent than what you see on screen... regardless of how well executed.
