I also thought this film received unfairly low ratings.
30 August 1999 | by (Miami, Fla) – See all my reviews

This film has haunted me since I first saw it on cable. The acting is excellent, especially Jennifer Jason Leigh, and the story (from the author of The Color Of Night) is creepy and intriguing. I would give it a 7 1/2
