Movie was originally intended to be filmed at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, MA. But after reviewing the script treatment, the college president at the time declined (at the last minute), due to the "serial rapist" element. The movie was then quickly moved to Smith College in Northampton, MA. Smith only agreed as long as the college name was changed. See more »
Jed said Tracey's blood group was AB negative. He would need to get donors in that type. In fact she could have been given any Rh negative blood type. Group O, A or B would be suitable for someone who is group AB (universal recipient). Only the Rh type (positive or negative) is important and then only to woman of child-bearing age. See more »

Malice is a very gripping mysterious thriller! The opening scene's haunting music will stay with you forever and draw you into a roller coaster ride of suspense, drama, and deceit.
The film revolves around a couple who's lives become interwoven by a mysterious and arrogant surgeon who manipulates and cons his way into their lives with little surprises around every turn. Harold Becker's directing is superb in setting the mood and pacing of the film. There are dramatic moments and secrets in the story that will keep you captivated until the very end. Watch for outstanding performances by Alec Baldwin, Nicole Kidman, and Bill Pullman, as well as a powerful supporting role by Ann Bancroft.
Malice is very difficult to review without giving away parts of the movie, so I will not go into great detail. It's the uncertainties in the movie that make it one to remember. See it, you will not be disappointed! The background musical score is one of the most memorable that I have heard in any movie. Malice is a tale of arrogance, power, mystery, and deception, that must be seen and will be long remembered after the final credits roll.
This is a very fine film that does not get the credit that it deserves!
