Plot sound bland: Guy falls in love with friend's wife, then friend got murdered, evidence points to wife, yadda yadda yadda. But wait. Once it gets to the second half, instead of delving into a slasher cliche, it later became clear to guy: that nothing is and never was and the line between good and evil blurred. Viewers should realised there is no real villains in the end, just victims left to the society who feels no mercy to any criminals, no matter how sad their lives were in the beginning. We used to be this child, so pure and innocent like a clean cloth, only to be tainted bit by bit by life's difficulties and our inner demons. There is so many other meanings found underneath this movie's erotic thriller exterior and the ending is haunting enough to remind us of this, that many should watch it again and again. It's unfortunate that this movie was buried along with other B-grade erotic thrillers. Hopefully, some filmmaker might pick this material up and turn it into something more deserving.
