When Dr. Buchanan (John Hurt) runs across the three slaughtered sheep in the woods at the beginning, closer inspection reveals that not only are they still alive, but asleep and breathing, and the supposed entrails are actually placed strategically on the sheep and not coming out from inside them.

I first saw this little known early ninties title on HBO not long after its release. I must say I found it to be quite memorable, with excellent performances by John Hurt and Raul Julia as well as Bridget Fonda. I love the 1800 settings in Geneva (actually filmed in Italy) and the way Hurt slipped back in time and found where he was. (according to his car "we are alone") so cool. The monster was real creepy and he actually talks. All in all, a very good movie I highly recommend. As of this writing, its not out on DVD that I am aware of but if it does come out, it will definately be worthy of my collection.
