Esther: Miss Price, you must be very tired. Why don't you take a pill and have a really good night's rest?
Amanda: Ah, yes! The capsule. Now that's a fair exchange. I offer you escape, you offer me oblivion. Goodnight, Esther. I can manage.

4 November 2002 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

A TV movie if there ever was one, but surprisingly well acted and plotted. It's always a pleasure watching movie veteran Kent (CAT PEOPLE) Smith participating. He's the family doctor in this one. Nice grabby ending, too. May drag a bit for those not familiar with the old TV movie formula, or those who think this is a horror movie, which it definitely is not. All that's missing is Bette Davis, who did lots of suspense flicks like this during the last 10 years of her life.
