Definitely more of a thriller than a horror film in nearly every way but it's a pretty decent set up at least. A young pretty girl (Reece Witherspoon) falls for a charming yet slightly strange young fellow named David. Turns out David is a bit of a psycho and ends up tormenting and even killing some of those closest to Reese. It's not that scary, but it's easy enough to watch in a made for tv kind of way. Also the celebrities make it a relatively well acted and interesting film even if it's hardly groundbreaking or frightening. One of those things to grab for a couple of bucks if you feel so inclined, also one of the first times I've seen a girl get fingered on a rollercoaster I should add...
