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 »

Quotes

Todd Canipe: They were others before her. And they all had these bellies these big round bellies.

A Better Grade of B Movie
5 January 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Whilst this film is not going to re-invent the Suspense/Thriller genre it views as one that could have been an A movie with a little more money and a bit of promotion. Certainly not with a change of cast. The twists, the developing romantic theme, all make this worth your viewing time. Rutger Hauer has his own unique brand of acting and Natasha Richardson can not only act but is rather cute.
