(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is scary. This could happen if the religious right gets a hold of this country more than it has now. This movie also reminds me of the quiverfull life style. Just scary. Don't kid yourself if you think this can't happen. I'm going to have nightmares tonight. I may also sleep with my lights on.

The movie has a surprising but great ending."

"This is a excellent film, with a outstanding cast. I was hooked when I first saw it. Victoria Tennant was chilling, Faye Dunaway and Robert Duval, were perfectly suited for one another! Natasha Richardson was such a natural for this movie, but, my favorite was Maureen McGovern, so beautiful, and as always, shows her tremendous acting abilities, I personally think that she should have received an oscar nomination. I see that this dvd has been discontinued, purchase your copy now before the prices go too high. This movie will be a excellent addition to your dvd collection."
Well done

"I received the DVD 9/14/09, the top edge of DVD box was damaged, but that was all. I applaud your patience in sending me the product after my mistake in address. Thank you and I would definitely order from them again."
Excellent Movie!!

"This movie is definitely prophetic. I find its plot to be very probable. As a woman, this was an eye opener. Great movie!"
