NO ONE CAN UNDERSTAND YOU

"Kelly McGillis who was so radiant in "Witness" and "Top Gun" looks out of place in this well-crafted but ultimately frustrating movie.
What starts out as a fairly interesting, and rather puzzling who is doing it, culminates in an ending that is so out of kilter you wonder why the director allowed the screenwriter to force this ridiculous ending on an unsuspecting audience. Just when you think the killer has been identified (and the killer admits he's the killer), a coda at the end suggests otherwise, WITHOUT any resolution. Like leaving it open for a sequel? Hardly, in this 2001 New Zealand film.
Overall, even though it holds your interest until the end, it's a cheap thrills movie."
Fairly interesting for a B Grade

"I'd have to say, in all honesty, I saw this movie solely for Craig Parker. And though I wasn't expecting much, it turned out to be quite interesting.**SPOILERS TO FOLLOW**The story follows a series of murders in a small town, which focus on young teenage girls and their familes. All the murders take place in the same fashion, and all seem to relate to a murder that took place not far from there in the 70's. The twist at the end took me by surprise. With the way this mystery/thriller lays things out, you are left guessing who is responcible until the end.I wouldn't recommend this to everyone. Its a bit 'hoaky' and the gore is rather fake. The characters are also dangerously unrealistic, but the thick plot that slowly unravels throughout will keep anyone intrigued. But be warned; this definately ISN'T an incredibly scary movie."
