Atmospheric supernatural mystery.
5 August 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Every night, the mysterious Night Owl goes on the air with her moody broadcasts which have an unnerving effect on her listeners. One woman begins to think her husband is being lured away and seduced by this woman's voice, and supernatural hints to this effect begin to display themselves.....

Interesting and well-made, and sexy Jennifer Beals is watchable as always. The film slides into routine at times (especially the ending), but is atmospheric enough to deliver the goods.

** 1/2 out of ****
