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>

Most insightful and intelligible story line ever.
12 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Never have I viewed a more well written story line. It is the most believable horror movie I have ever witnessed. It is really difficult to view it as a horror movie because of the movies most realistic aspects. It does not have a tendency to frighten you as much as it causes you to seriously consider the possibility of reincarnation being a serious possibility that you may not want to ignore. It also causes you to reconsider those those moments of premonition. Are they really real? Why do they continue their repeat performances in our memories? Is there a reason why they are so blatantly real and continually haunting in our lives. Then there is the undeniable clincher if you believe in the Bible and God. Jesus Christ came back. Lazereth came back, and the Bible says we all will return to one place or another. Mannn!,how in the world was this sequel overlooked?
