Where IS this movie?
20 March 2002 | by reptilicusSee all my reviews

I have not seen this movie, but I want to! I have wanted to ever since I read that glowing review in an issue of "The Monster Times" so many years ago. I know the film is out there somewhere because I saw a trailer for it on a Seattle, Washington TV station so it does still exist. Where IS it? I want to see it. Heck, I want to own it! Okay people start checking those film vaults. It has to be out there somewhere so start looking for it. And when you find it, drop me a line.
