Trivia

The script was written originally to be an episode of the classic Hitchcock TV series. Co-writer, of that script, DeFelitta expanded that unsold and unmade screenplay and it became his last credit as a director. See more »

Goofs

Supposedly taking place in Chicago (though there's no attempt to give even the barest hint of it being in Chicago -- the apartment building is very LA), but the sloppiness gets very evident when you see the (213) Los Angeles area code on the toy building across from the insane apartment she ends up in (Chicago's area code is 312).

Well-honed scissors
19 June 2004 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews



I first saw "Scissors" some ten years ago, and I had kept some memories of it when I saw it again on tv. It fulfilled my expectations, as I remembered it as rather interesting, though somewhat far-fetched.

Several reviewers have wondered about the necessity of showing Sharon Stone's beautiful bare breasts. I think it signifies that, though she reacts frigidly to men's advances, her sexuality is nevertheless present and no longer repressed when she is alone. Most writers rightly stress the excellency of the impersonation of Sharon Stone, on her (delayed)way to stardom. However I should like to point out that Steve Railsback, a very underrated actor, is quite remarkable too in the dual role of the neighboring twins. I think the film is worth a 8.
