Quotes

Esther: Miss Price, you must be very tired. Why don't you take a pill and have a really good night's rest?
Amanda: Ah, yes! The capsule. Now that's a fair exchange. I offer you escape, you offer me oblivion. Goodnight, Esther. I can manage.

What a great film!
4 April 2002 | by shanek-2See all my reviews

It is amazing that the people behind this film haven't gone on to make many more films, they did well.

It has a good story, interesting characters, and they did a pretty convincing job of pulling it off.

It is refreshing to see characters in a film who are intelligent enough to figure out what is going on as it happens, and confronting each other with their knowledge. It seems they all have their secrets but not for long... and yet there are still some surprises at the end. I'm not talking the obvious.

Wonderfully gothic with good performances. Maybe todays horror films could learn some small lessons from this. Horror films can still work without a sexy young cast of TV stars.
