Later, Mike dies when Todd inadvertently starts a fire in the auto shop. And yes I got what I expected.

We have news, reviews, podcasts, videos, a whole world of horror just waiting for you! The teen character named Hailey played by Nicole Tompkins, moved into the new town only to face with unfriendly and mean peers.

While probably scary for its time, this horror film hasn't aged well. Is the story based on fact? A boy falls down a flight of stairs. George is given little to do, though, other than harangue the worst exorcist ever Philip Baker Hall , but in the final stages gives good shriek.
