Carla's sister accidetally falls off a cliff when the railing becomes loose while Carla's boyfriend takes photos. She has a hard time getting over her death and keeps having visions of her sister yelling at her for not saving her. It seems that everytime she gets next to a edge of a high area, she gets terrified. She then starts to take a class with other Acrophobiacs. Then the people in the group start getting killed one by one. She starts to suspect that someone wants her never to get over her fear and that the loose railing was meant for her. Written by
After Carla sees Dr. Sadowski and is walking to her car on the top of the parking structure, she watches a newspaper blow around and over the rail. The newspaper then turns into the scarf her sister was wearing when she fell. The scarf "hovers" over the rail before it falls. You can clearly see a hole in the center of the scarf as if it's attached to a line. See more »

Like most people who viewed this movie I suspect, I picked up this movie because Wes Craven's name was listed prominently on the cover, in the credits on the back, etc. Lo and behold, this is not directed, written, nor overseen by Mr. Craven, but only produced by him. A sad case of marketing over matter. Well, who cares, right? I do, because what lay inside the DVD case was a fairly mediocre movie that doesn't seem to know if it's a psycho-thriller or a character study or a murder mystery. Kinney's take as the psychologist is the only really good acting here (the heroine is particularly dull in her delivery) and the cinematography, which should make us vertiginous, just feels static. There was a bit here to work with, script and plot wise, but it's been done (Diabolique, Vertigo, Mousetrap) before, and done better. C-.
