Artist Nick Cave was considered for the bad guy/Patrick Nanning role. Cave, who was touring the US at the time, did audition for the role, but later said he was glad he had not been awarded the part. See more »

I'm going to agree with Ava de Lara (no relation): Jeff Kober as the serial killer Patrick Channing is the best thing about this movie. He completely understands how this material is to be played (tongue in bloody cheek), and he has great energy. The movie is just not as good when he's not onscreen. (My favorite scene is the one in the confessional.) Overall, the movie's "rules" for the killer are not well established. I never completely believe Lou Diamond Phillips as a cop. He does crack a few good lines though. Tracy Griffith is OK, but she gets increasingly shrill as the movie goes on. It shows up on TBS a lot, and I recommend you watch it for Jeff Kober's performance. This is the first of his "serial killer returning from the grave to exact demonic revenge" characters, which he's also done as a guest shot on POLTERGEIST: THE LEGACY and CHARMED.
