beautiful actress, terrible movie
10 June 2005 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

A woman stays with her fiancé at his father's mansion. The father is a brain surgeon, or at least a brain surgery hobbyist - he has a surgery room in the basement. Her fiancé's ill grandfather also lives in the house. The father and grandfather seem to be interested in her at least as much as her fiancé.

Lydie Denier is beautiful, but apart from her beauty, the film is really quite the bad one. It is boring and uneventful. She gets drugged several times by drinks, and doesn't wise up to that. She has odd drug-induced hallucinations or dreams, or perhaps merely witnesses odd things relating to the surgeon and his supposedly late wife.

Avoid this one. I'd be curious to see something better with Denier in it, though.
