The mad reviewer strikes again!!!
17 November 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

And leaves no paper trail...anyway, I decided to watch this movie after developing a fondness for Elizabeth Taylor starring in crap. That is a bit harsh--it isn't really crap. Not as bad as I thought it would be.

The whole point of this film, as I saw it, was that nothing is what it seems. Ellen Wheeler (Elizabeth Taylor--who else) seems to be a raving lunatic, but is she really? She spends much of the film in an hysterical state, begging people to believe that she saw a corpse in the house next to hers. (I swear I thought I saw something over there the first time I saw this movie, but the second time I realized I was nuts also.) I love how she gets frustrated, saying she saw him plainly; when the detective asks her to describe him, all she can manage is a vague description of a blonde man. Basically, "Why won't you believe me??? I know what I saw! What did he look like? Oh, I've no idea. I didn't look hard enough." Hubby Laurence Harvey doesn't want to call the cops. Not because there's nothing there, but in the interest of being polite--he doesn't want to bother them. "Oh, it's dark and raining. Forget the murder until a nicer day." That's an odd way of doing things...

Then there's Ellen's friend Sarah, who has been indulging in a little sin with a fella named "Barry." Ellen seems perturbed by this, but always asks where Barry is, what Barry does, what Barry eats. She has her own secret reasons for this questioning, and it all comes out in the end. Ah, the end. The end that my sister figured out before the beginning credits stopped, and the one that I didn't figure out until the ending credits stopped. That's weird--I've seen tons more movies, you'd think I'd know all the plots by now.

Gripes--idiotic music, especially the end song. Very romantic, but I didn't know this was a romance. The lighting was awful--during the creepy ending, I couldn't see what was going on. There wasn't any suspense. I couldn't see who was doing what! I did see the vast quantity of blood though, so if you're squeamish close your eyes.

All in all, very enjoyable. It's always fun to watch Elizabeth Taylor freak.
