A severe storm hits the island taking out the phone and electricity, add a mysterious stranger and a creepy sheriff and you have the set up for a thriller where all and who are not what they seem. Written by
At the beginning of the movie, a severe night time thunderstorm hits the island where the two main characters are vacationing. However, the next day there are no signs that the storm occurred. The grass and trees are dry and the roads are dusty. See more »
Geoffrey Schaaf probably had no clue where he was taking this story, because ultimately, it makes no sense at all. The credits tell us it's based on a screen play from Paul Corvino; it makes us wonder if the writer must have been under influence when he conceived this pathetic thriller.
The actors are wasted. Poor Ally Sheedy, she gets involved in projects that really don't deserve her talent. One wonders if after High Art a lot of directors have decided to cast her in lesbian roles.
The story is too obvious. We know what's coming just by looking at the first scenes of the dinner party. It goes downhill after that. Stephen Baldwin will be better off by retreating to his native Long Island and start a clam digging business. Chris Penn is just horrible in the film, as are Patsy Kensit and Mimi Longeland.
