Great midnight flick
26 June 2005 | by riverflowsSee all my reviews

I saw this movie from netflix because most Linda Blair movies are not in video stores and I'm glad I did. I think Linda is a great actress and she is not bad to look at either. I think she is very underrated. I would love to see her make another big Hollywood hit. It would be awesome to see her have a comeback. My mom actually saw her at a teen party back in the 1970's. This movie has story to it and involves all of her character's life and not just the suspenseful parts. It is all around enjoyable and fun to watch at night when your in the mood for and older thriller movie. It's not an A class movie but it is a necessity for Linda Blair fans.
