Storyline

Dan was a successful football player, but when his contract expired recently, it wasn't renewed due to his age. Together with his wife Julie he decides to make a new start and they move into a romantic and lonesome house. While Dan starts a second career as newscaster, she's home alone and suffers from frightingly realistic erotic dreams, in which she has sex with an unknown man. Soon this demon even haunts her in broad daylight and attacks friends and husband out of jealousy. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Surprisingly Good
18 August 2004 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

Although this movie didn't obtain a great success, it is surprisingly good, in fact it is one of the best "soft horror" movies i ever saw.

If you love horror movies involving ghosts, spirits or beings that you never actually get to see in the "flesh" form, you will love this one.

Jane gives a wonderful performance and is as beautiful as she ever was.

One of those movies with such subtle ingredients that will bring some shivers to your back. Music score is perfect too, creating a haunting-mysterious atmosphere around it rare to see in this days horror movies.

As a curiosity, the 90s "Baywatch" TV series had an episode that was almost a replica of the argument in this movie, although a very bad replica indeed.
