Very Mind Tingling
26 December 2007 | by (Cleveland, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I first saw this years ago on mystery - PBS. Had to wait years to find the video, and can't find it on DVD, however if you ever get a chance to see one great mind blowing movie - do see this movie. Very well written and acted the movie has a get even love triangle murder and intrigue, but so believable!! I can still say the lines of this movie years after seeing it. Its that good! Involving some of the great independent actors of today , The 2 couples and how their lives intertwine in a murder for revenge movie, is well worth seeking out and watching!! I think you can rent it. Make sure you get the whole version, the VHS has some cut out from even the aired version on PBS and that makes more sense and shows more of the "who controls who" which is part of the mind twist to the movie (without giving it away). Great movie, one that you'll be talking about for a long time.
