Good idea with so-so execution
20 April 2012 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

A suburban couple (Sharon Farrell and Edward Bell) find their lives in danger when a psycho woman (Ellen Barber) and her carny clown boyfriend (Richard Lynch) attempt to kidnap their adopted daughter. Naturally, the daughter is really hers and was taken away when she was locked up in a mental institution. But what our villains don't count on is the adoptive mother having some ESP tendencies that will foil their escape plans. This is an odd thriller. Parts of it are really well made and other parts are really muddled. Director-writer Robert Allen Schnitzer has the germ of a great idea in here, but doesn't seem entirely convinced by even his own ideas. For example, the parapsychology stuff isn't given much detail and even when a doctor specializing in it enters the picture, you're still not sure of what she is talking about. This brings us scenes like the doctor saying stuff to Farrell like, "Just let it flow" and that results in a painting crying blood. Cool visual, but does it really mean anything? Worth seeing for some creepy dream sequences and an early performance from Richard Lynch.
