"According to director Mark L. Lester, Tangerine Dream never actually saw the film. They sent him some music and told him to choose whatever he liked. "

" Will she have the power... to survive?Story/Writing: ★★★ (3 / 5) Haven't read the book yet, but I thought it had a decent story. Enough there to keep me watching anyway.
