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>

Sexy and Eerie, a great movie

The Haunting Passion, what a title and what a movie. Jane Seymour was completely believable in her intimate scenes with her ghostly lover. The confusion over what was happening to her and the guilt that she was feeling were, in my opinion, award worthy. Gerald Mcraney's character, the poor self-absorbed husband of Diane-Jane Seymour, didn't know whether he was coming or going. He didn't know if he should be looking for someone to kill, or if he should have loaded his, seemingly, insane wife in the car and escorted her to the nearest mental facility. The ending left much to be desired, with as good as the rest of the movie was it deserved a better ending. Even though the ending wasn't exactly wonderful, the rest of the movie made up for that. So if you're flipping through the channels and see Jane Seymour making out with herself, or the wind, stop and watch; you won't be disappointed. If you have the WE cable network look for it, they may show it again, with no interruptions!
