This movie was alright, but not one of my favorites. I picked this one up because of the box's promised pairing of Traci Lords and Tony Todd. I really liked Candyman (the FIRST one) and I was eager to see Mr. Todd play something other than a murderous hook-wielding spectre. And let's just say that I'm partial to Traci Lords... Anyway, in accordance with many of Traci's other recent roles (in "Profiler" and _Extramarital_), this movie is a dramatic-thriller. The plot takes a little while to get moving, but the actors do good work for what they are given. Its not a bad story, but I'm sure that there could have been some way to "speed it up" a little. Traci Lords plays Kelly Bekins, a widow who returns to the hotel room where her husband was murdered. She does this in part for closure and also to find out more about what happened. She meets one of her husband's colleagues, Michael Novic (Andrew Heckler), in the city, who attempts to comfort her in her time of struggle. There is also a strange post-mortem connection between Kelly's son, Matthew (Seth Adkins), and her deceased husband. While at the hotel, there are some interesting characters, most notably Bubba (Tony Todd). All performances are well done. The writing picks up near the end, but like I said, it moves a little slow.
