Paint By Numbers Thriller
5 June 2005 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

This is basically a female version of "Rear Window". Sherilyn Fenn stars as Shelby, who loses her husband in a car accident. After his death, she copes by listening to a police scanner. She then overhears a couple arguing. Shelby thinks a innocent woman is dead and following her. Of course nobody believes her. "Nightwaves" is very heavy with clichés. Nothing original happens here. There's one scene where it's supposed to be raining outside and you don't see any rain at all, You hear sound effects. Sherilyn Fenn is okay in this, but she is above TV movie of the week material.

The box art is also very misleading. This is not a "Red Shoe Diaries"-type movie.
