Interesting concept, but very low budget
4 August 2003 | by nickandrewSee all my reviews

A stressed school teacher moves into her deceased aunt's mansion for the summer where strange things happen, in particular visits from a mysterious old hearse. Creepy film has potential, but comes off as a `B` movie due to the bad acting from supporting cast and a disappointing ending.
