mediocre gothic thriller
16 April 2001 | by (Weaverville, NC) – See all my reviews

This run-of-the-mill TV thriller has Mary Crosby as a television reporter hounded by an obsessed stalker. Problem is, no one else witnesses the stalkings and believes Cosby. In fact, they have good reason not to, as Crosby's mother went crazy and threw herself off the cliffs into the ocean near the family home years before, veiled in a black lace shawl as she appears in a portrait hanging in the house(hence the title). Is there really a stalker or is Crosby falling victim to the insanity that drove her mother to an early end? Can anyone who has seen even one movie like this not predict the ending? Okay, with some creepy atmosphere, but hardly anything new.
