Storyline

When college professor Peter Proud begins to experience flashbacks from a previous incarnation, he is mysteriously drawn to a place he has never been before but which is troublingly familiar. As if drawn to her by cosmic force, he soon finds himself unwittingly in the company of his previous incarnation's wife. This woman, Marcia Curtis, recognizes in Peter startling characteristics which he shares with her dead husband, Jeff. Even the sound of his voice seems at times to be that of the dead man. Peter becomes romantically drawn to Ann Curtis who is or was his daughter (Jeff and Marcia's daughter). Recognizing the incestuous nature of their relationship, Mrs. Curtis tries to keep the two young people apart. But how? Must she reveal the terrible secret of the final minutes she shared with her husband in order to keep this man from her (their?) daughter? Written by Mark Fleetwood <mfleetwo@mail.coin.missouri.edu>

Goofs

When Peter describes his first dream, he tells his girlfriend that "she (Marsha) was hitting me in the (private parts) with a paddle. Initially, the director may have wanted to show the murder as involving an injury of this sort, because when the man in the dream falls back into the water, he is holding his private area. But, it is very clear that when he is in the boat, he is on his stomach. There is no way she could have hit the front of his body. See more »

great creative movie, spooky, but where did it go-i never see this on cable..
2 January 2008 | by smjm1982-1See all my reviews

I really liked this movie, it is one of those movies that really sneak up on you and spook you more as it goes along but why doesn't it ever come out on TV or USA or TBS or HBO.. To all with the power to put this back on TV, please get it back on.. I know a few people who would like this movie. Other movies like this i'd like to see on TV, basic cable or premium (ie:HBO) Also mysteriously spooky movies i'd like to see along with this one.. The Changeling, Ghost Story These are movies that, while they may not have had a great rating.. they were great in that they were all eerie & spooky, unlike Jaws, it didn't just come right out and bite you but it spooked you and I would love to see all these back on TV, all of them were about an 8 in rating.
