Trivia

Director Karen Arthur disowned (and nearly took her name off of) the finished film. Against her wishes, the studio re-edited the film to show more nudity on the part of Diane Lane. In addition, the studio minimized Cotter Smith's performance, and all scenes with Viveca Lindfors were eliminated; both actors played characters integral to the plot, and these eliminations made the film more confusing.

Holds you.
30 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

Despite some plot implausibilities and a mildly excessive running time, this is an interesting erotic thriller that will maintain your attention with its solid acting and its straightforward directing. The villain here is a married man and a doctor, which only makes the contrast between his "normal" life and his perverse side much more sharp. If you're looking for a thriller centered on sexual fixation, this may not be your only choice, but it is among the good ones. (**1/2)
