Storyline

A former cop who is now a novelist notices an attractive young woman move in next door to him. He strikes up a conversation, one thing leads to another and he spends the night. She asks him to come back the next evening, but when he does he discovers that she has been killed. When he reports the murder, he is told that no such woman ever lived there, and when he gets back to the house there's a completely different woman staying there--who he's never seen before--who claims that she's lived there for years and no other woman has ever lived there.

intriguing, good suspense film
9 June 2002 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

Not a confusing film, but an intriguing one. Viewers learn more and more, and in the end everything is wrapped up and nothing is left without explanation.

Early on it calls to mind The Lady Vanishes (1937)...but it is different than that. Later on it calls to mind, to some degree, Jacob's Ladder (1990), but it is not that film either. There are aspects that almost seem surreal, until we gradually learn what is going on - there is a definite resolution; this is not like the stereotype of a David Lynch film.

A good suspense film that deals with memory and identity and their unravelling as a mystery.

Lara Flynn Boyle is especially attractive here: softer and not as extremely, frighteningly thin as she has been recently.
