Two green thumbs up!
17 December 2003 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

Entirely original thriller is hampered a bit by sluggish lulls, yet is conceptually revolutionary and comes off more credible than its premise might suggest.

When a woman claiming to possess an unearthly connection to plant-life dies mysteriously, her sister, compelled to put to rest unanswered questions in the matter, begins an investigation of plant/human communication phenomena. Her shocking conclusion is that her sister's houseplants are not only cogent key-witnesses to the murder, but they may also be attempting to warn her that she is in similar danger.

Honorable performances and a wonderfully offbeat story make this low-budget effort a most enjoyable surprise...possibly not so easy to attain, but worth tracking down.

6/10
