When Tom and Sandy are walking on the beach in an early scene, for a brief moment there's a black object on the right side of the frame, as the camera is tracking left. It's likely a microphone, or part of the camera equipment. See more »

Quotes

Tom Stewart: Sandy, why did you have to see it?
Sandy Hubbard: I couldn't help it.
Tom Stewart: No, nobody could help any of it, except me. If I'd held my hand out to Vi I could've saved her, but I killed her.

Not a bad concept but handled poorly
23 February 2002 | by (Jacksonville, FL) – See all my reviews

The idea of a man allowing the death of a lover so as not to get caught by his future wife is a nice concept. His subsequent guilt and the paranoia it causes is also an interesting idea. Then why is this movie not that great? A few reasons, the biggest being the reliance on hokey special effects that are laughable. Vi's head talking to Tom Stewart while sitting on a shelf can't be looked at with a straight face. Her redundant accusations while wrapped in a sack is even more hilarious. The movie is also very dull and the dramatic moments aren't executed very well. They also deteriorate into laughter. Some of the dead air does work well with Tom's inner voices and the acting isn't really that bad. The cast has some talent and is led by Carlson of Creature from the Black Lagoon fame. This movie could be a big time fright fest with a better script. This attempt doesn't deliver on a good idea.

4.2/10
