Quotes

Eve Abergray: We had a fight. A horrible, horrible fight.
Ann Hecker: A physical fight?
Eve Abergray: He started torturing me. Bring me close and stopping and bring me close again. And then he stopped. And took his necktie and tied my hands together in front of me. He had a rope, which he'd strung over a rafter. And he put a chair under it and ordered me to stand on it. There's a noose on the rope, and... he... told me to put my neck into it. He took a polaroid of me. And the flash blinded me. But when I could see again he was behind...

This is not reality, nay-sayers. It's entertainment.
2 June 2010 | by (USA, Texas) – See all my reviews

Earth to whomever? This movie is fiction. Like fiction on the silver screen, TV, or a book, it is not meant to educate. It is meant to entertain. Anyone failing to grasp this fundamental truth should not rent this movie or watch TV or watch 99% of the movies ever made. They should, instead, watch documentaries.

Of course the killer is obvious from the beginning. He and the other actors turn in average (at best) performances.

Annabella Sciorra was 28 when this movie was made. She was a good choice for an entertaining movie. Yes, she would "supernova" in The Hand That Rocks The Cradle when compared to this movie. Yet that means not that her performance was poor; indeed, she shines in Whispers In The Dark.

Overall it is an enjoyable movie for those that realize that fiction is almost always predictable when it appears in a movie.

It entertains, and that is what it should do.
