The perfect recipe for Spite & Malice.
15 November 2000 | by (Pennsylvania, US) – See all my reviews

Wicked! Witty! Wonderful! One of the best psychological suspense thrillers to be brought to the screen, this movie might've have been easily subtitled "Spite & Malice", but never have the two vices been served up so divinely! Cherie Lunghi shines!
