Storyline

When college professor Peter Proud begins to experience flashbacks from a previous incarnation, he is mysteriously drawn to a place he has never been before but which is troublingly familiar. As if drawn to her by cosmic force, he soon finds himself unwittingly in the company of his previous incarnation's wife. This woman, Marcia Curtis, recognizes in Peter startling characteristics which he shares with her dead husband, Jeff. Even the sound of his voice seems at times to be that of the dead man. Peter becomes romantically drawn to Ann Curtis who is or was his daughter (Jeff and Marcia's daughter). Recognizing the incestuous nature of their relationship, Mrs. Curtis tries to keep the two young people apart. But how? Must she reveal the terrible secret of the final minutes she shared with her husband in order to keep this man from her (their?) daughter? Written by Mark Fleetwood <mfleetwo@mail.coin.missouri.edu>

Goofs

When Peter describes his first dream, he tells his girlfriend that "she (Marsha) was hitting me in the (private parts) with a paddle. Initially, the director may have wanted to show the murder as involving an injury of this sort, because when the man in the dream falls back into the water, he is holding his private area. But, it is very clear that when he is in the boat, he is on his stomach. There is no way she could have hit the front of his body. See more »

Marcia Curtis: You filthy, rotten, stinking bastard!

Soft-core film of Max Ehrlich's novel
27 September 2000 | by (ny,ny) – See all my reviews

A soft-core film, of Max Ehtlich's novel of reincarnation. It's very '70s, with psychedelic cross cuttings of events, but still morbidly fascinating.Jennifer 0'Neill is stunningly beautiful and worthwhile,Cornelia Sharpe is sexy and funny, and Margot Kidder explicitly reveals her gorgeous figure and superb acting ability in a role that would have fit Bette Davis in her heydey,but it's Anne Ives as the adorable Grandma whom nearly steals the show from the lovely young ladies, in a short but memorable appearance.Popular male model Tony Stephano is also worthwhile in his only film appearance.Much of it drags(we are given a travelogue of New England in one such sequence), but check out this raunchy film, which was surprisingly produced by Bing Crosby's production company.
