| Cheesy TV Movie
I nearly enjoyed this movie until the very end for what it was-a TV movie on a late Friday night on Lifetime Movies. Great performances all around, and Elijah Wood a standout. I love JoBeth Williams and Tom Skerritt in these type of roles in general.

Then the ending came. It was so far out there that it ruined the entire film for me. Considering how suspenseful it had been until now, that says a lot about the ending. It just appeared fake.

The only way to describe the weird ending is that it seems the CryptKeeper suddenly appears and does his thing to this normal cast. If you see it, you will understand what I mean.
