beware of chills, thrills, and chills!!!!!!!!!!!!?!!!!!!!!!
17 May 2009 | by tinyfolkSee all my reviews

this highly suspenseful tour DE force will grab you by the nape of your neck, throw you against the wall, break the mirror, and NEVER LET YOU GO! a tour DE force performance by Gennifer Jason Leigh, and also a highly suspenseful performance by Brain DE palma. the eerie setting of the bayou sets a most provocative and eerie mis en scene. MIS EN SCENE ABOUNDS! did i mention this was a tour DE force? Gennifer Jason Leigh is a HOTTIE TOTTIE! walk, but don't trottie. JENNIFER JASON LEIGH XXL! Brain DE palma and Susan saran-don have some REAL chemistry. WOOOOOO! gohsts! and zombiess the swamp too. a tour DE force abounds! i give it an 8 for plot, though a few scenes struck me as a bit over the top and self-indulgent. THRILLS AND CHILLS AWAIT YOU!!!!! also plot twists a-go-go. walk, but don't run to the movie store, to rent the VHS, of, SISTER SISTER.

What are you waiting for?!?! GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
