  • 4 stars "Well, I read the book first and loved it. So when I watched the movie I was surprised at how intense everything was. The movie is a lot more suspenseful than the book, but I loved it still. A great story!"
  • 1 star "I felt like I was the tenth victim for having to watch this movie. The canned film should have been put in the safe and thrown in the pit. I just didn't feel the love with the flowers, mountains, and meadows while watching a lunatic weave a basket in his backyard....are you kidding me?"
  • 2 stars "Tucci and Walberg were great, but overall, teh movie was a bit too cheesy...a bit too long and boring."
