Trivia

First ever credit as a producer (an associate) for Laura Ziskin. See more »

Goofs

When Laura sees an especially frightening vision the camera cuts to her eyes in close-up. Her pupils are not maximally dilated as they would normally be by extreme emotion, but are pinpoints. This would likely have been a technical difficulty as the bright lights in the C/U would shrink her pupils. See more »

Eyes of Laura Mars
13 May 1999 | by Coxer99See all my reviews

Shocking thriller that stars Dunaway as a photographer with premonitions of murder. A wonderful score, exceptional editing and an eerie pace set beautifully by director Kershner. Raul Julia co-stars.
