Jessica Shepard's final confrontation with the villain, was filmed at the San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park. The ship behind her is the Balclutha (1886). She was acquired by the San Francisco Maritime Museum in 1954, and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1985. Two of her three square-rigged masts, and their lower yards, are clearly visible behind Jessica. See more »

[knife to her neck]
I can hear your heart beating. Sounds like you've got an animal in your chest, trying to get out. Sounds like blood. Sounds like flesh.

What's this? *What* *is* *this*?
It's my gun.

Why does Ashley Judd keep making these awful movies?
Why does someone as talented as Ashley Judd keep making such rotten movies?
Does she read the scripts before she commits to them?
There was a time when Ms. Judd made terrific films - "Ruby in Paradise" and "Smoke" - she has a cameo and what a superb performance it is.
"Twisted" is just a mess of a movie. Not only is this film dreadfully paced, for a suspense thriller it is surprisingly devoid of suspense and thrills.
The story is utterly predictable. There are no plot twists and if you cannot figure out who the villain is about 10 minutes into the film, find yourself another hobby. The material is so beneath the talents of Ms. Judd, Samuel L. Jackson, Andy Garcia and director Philip Kaufman.
I can only hope that this film will finally prove to Ms. Judd that it's time to give this genre a break - for good - and sink her teeth into better roles.
