Spoiler: According to Cinematographer Haskell Wexler, after the test screening the ending was changed as "the bad guy at the end didn't die badly enough. As it was, Halle Berry shot the guy, bang, he died. When we redid the scene, she shot him, kicked him in the nuts, struck him with a hatchet so he fell back, shattering a car windscreen before hitting the ground, where we stabbed him with a high heel..."

Have a seat. Now I want you to listen very carefully, Mrs. Potenza, alright? You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney, and to have the attorney present during questioning. If you so desire, and cannot afford one, an attorney will be provided for you without charge.

Berry did put on a very nice performance, as well as the rest of the cast. Although, there is this one part where she is in a vehicle, and is screaming...screaming...screaming... It gets QUITE annoying.
Also, the encounters by the sliding door remind me a lot of Scream. I am not sure which movie ripped off who (I believe this one came out first), but the scenes are similar.
Overall, Jones wrote/directed an excellent thriller. You will experience many "WHY DID HE/SHE DO THAT" - "OMGs" - and a few "AWWs". The ending has such a neat twist, and even if this is not your type of movie...do watch it to see Peter Greene topless.
