Joel Gretsch had to be persuaded into taking his shirt off in the sex scene as he felt that his body wasn't in good enough shape. (As can be seen by his excellent physique in the final edit, Gretsch needn't have worried.) See more »

Goofs

When Ben calls the house to check if Eve is actually there, and shortly after, as he approaches the house, he is wearing a watch on his wrist. When he discovers Raymond unconscious in the garage, a clear shot of Ben's arms shows that he is no longer wearing the watch. See more »

Damned scary, stellar cast & BEAUTIFUL photography
20 October 2006 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

Having lived with an abusive stepparent, this hit the nail bang on the head. DAMNED scary. Soundtrack was nice, acting superb all around, and the photography lush and brilliantly planned.

Actually, I'd rate this as an 8.5, because the enabling stepfather was just a little TOO accommodating, although the writing is otherwise well-crafted. The reason I gave this a ten is to offset the overly biased previous postings which don't give this movie its due. The visuals are truly stunning, the sets gorgeous, and the camera-work clever and innovative.

Oh, and the actresses are unbelievably beautiful. The "stepmother" is a latter-day Ali McGraw, and it's testament to her talent that she can go from dazzlingly, breathtakingly sexy to skin-crawlingly scary within a matter of seconds.

The "stepdaughter" is also great, absolutely believable and so pretty and vulnerable you know she's going to be a major heartbreaker as she matures.

Don't listen to the negative voices. Judge for yourself. A solid, high-tension, superbly-crafted thriller.

(And no, I have no connection whatsoever to anyone involved.)
