Great whodunnit. Keeps you guessing (wrong) until the end!
16 January 2000 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

I really liked this film. Joe Mantegna's character goes through a bit of a metamorphesis before it's over, and Kelly Maroney does a terrific job in her part as Merre. There's an awful lot of nudity and sex, but the film really wouldn't have been as good without it. By that I mean that it was important to the story line, and without it, there would have been some obvious gaps in the plot for the viewer. All of it is pretty matter of fact, and I don't think it went too far. The characters really get to you, and by the end of the flick, you're cheering for the good guys and warning them to "don't open that door!" This is a nice film to watch after the kids are asleep, and doesn't stretch your sense of incredulity. The characters are very three-dimensional and the plot never slows down. I give it a strong thumbs-up.
