Trivia

After significantly re-writing the script, Quentin Tarantino was given an associate producer credit on the film (his first official screen credit). The film features a number of Tarantino's trademark pop cultural references. For example, in reference to a Peeping Tom-like recording of a murder, a cop says "It makes Nightmare on Elm Street look like Charlotte's Web." See more »

Goofs

Shortly after the two cops take Ben away, and Todd is in the house getting ready to kill Laura, the detective calls her and she pretends he is her father so that he realizes there is something wrong. He tells her that help is on the way. The two cops come back and are killed by Todd. The detective never calls back when the cops don't check in to say they caught Todd. See more »

Not The Usual Rugged Rutger
5 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This turned out to be more of a women's romance-soap-suspense film than what I hoped it was....simply a tense thriller. Yes, the final 20 minutes were suspenseful but much of the previous 75 bordered on being just plain tedious.

Ruter Hauer was a little too subdued, not playing his normal intense character. Natasha Richardson sports somewhat of a dumb look most of the time and her character was very unappealing.

The story is so-so. It's not as bad as I'm making out, but it sure isn't anything I'd watch again, and the back of the VHS describing this movie was misleading.
