Fairly Decent Little Flick, However It's A Bit Too Slow Paced
This is a fairly decent little flick, however it's a bit too slow paced at times, and after a great start, it becomes a tad tedious,and a bit too silly for my liking. It has some creepy atmosphere at times, and the score is good, however, it can't rise above average, due to the slow pacing, and, unlikable characters. This was another movie i got from a DVD called Psychotic Connections. The Directing is decent.Wes Craven does a decent job here, great use of colors, some decent overhead shots, a very effective stalking scene at the beginning,some pretty cool zoom in's however the pace, is awful at times, and extremely inconsistent. There is no gore. The Acting is so so. Michael Beck does a decent job here, and seems to be having fun with his role, and was sort of menacing. Beatrice Straight is good as the Mother, and was okay in the dramatic sequences. Laura Johnson is very pretty and does what she has to do well. Dick O'Neill is okay here, and did what he had to do adequately. Paul Sorvino is so so, here and terribly miscast,he was amusing at times though. Jill Schoelen is beautiful!, and does great here, and is one of the great horror scream queens!. Overall worth a rental, but not much more, since it's only average at best. ** out of 5
