Storyline

Joyce seems to have the perfect life - she lives in a nice apartment with a wealthy husband, is soon going to give birth to a baby boy, and has all the money she'll ever need. But while her husband is away in London on business, Joyce is attacked by a masked intruder, that unleashes within her a frightened little girl, haunted by her "special" relationship with her daddy, and a crazed madwoman who is hungry for revenge. From then on, Joyce's wild hallucinations take over, and she begins to murder anyone and everyone who comes near her, in a violent fit of rage. Written by Anonymous

Strange, but worth watching
21 October 2000 | by (Norfolk, VA) – See all my reviews

I was not expecting what I had seen in this film. This movie starts out that there is a girl that is pregant and has trouble with her rich family members taunting her and ridiculing her for her mental problems. The lady comes home to her apartment and there is a man there that beats her up and she is left there to fend for herself. She kills the man and hides him under the sofa in her apartment and from this point on... she does not leave her apartment. This is when things get weird.... she soon finds herself hallucinating, seeing people that aren't there and having flashbacks of her fathers death, her half-sisters taunting and her mothers nagging. The mind games are interesting to watch and one wanders if people really can see things this way. The lady has lost the baby and therefore pretends to be pregant throughout the rest of the movie fooling everyone about the miscarrage and the hallucinations. This movie is worth watching and I give it at least a 7.
