The film's title refers to Shakespeare's tragedy 'Macbeth' (Act I, Scene 5), in which Lady Macbeth invokes the powers of darkness in preparation for committing murder: "Come, you spirits / That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here / And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full / Of direst cruelty..."

I think I hear him. Like, sometimes I think I hear his voice calling me.Joycie. It's really weird, the way the mind works.

Mortal Thoughts was an average film of its time. As long as you don't overthink anything, you should find the film enjoyable. For those of you who like to over analyze everything, nitpick, over think, over exaggerate, please, either stay away from this, or just keep your mouth shut and try to let the person sitting next to you enjoy the damn movie. Sure, its botchy. It's not terrific, it's not perfect, but it is a solid film that is pretty engrossing. I wouldn't necessarily call this a thriller, although I think the title would suggest it to be one. This is more of a mystery, and by mystery, I'm talking about the "what really happened", not the "whodunnit" mystery, so if that doesn't appeal to you, this isn't what you're looking for. Everything is pretty simple and straight forward as far as the premise, there's a murder, and the viewer thinks they know who, but why, and do you REALLY know who? Bruce Willis plays a perverted pig in this film ( he asks Demi Moore multiple times to reveal herself to him, in his own words. God I wanted to slap his character!) It does have a twist or two, although I will argue that the twist may have killed the movie a little bit. I understand why they did it, but this is where the movie would have been fine without it, and unfortunately, I can't reveal why without spoiling anything, so I have to end this here. It's going to excel for about 66% of you, guesstimating. The rest of you knuckleheads are going to want to rip it apart with your logic and common sense and....I wish people could just enjoy films like they did back in 1991! Oh, look, that's what year this was released. I give it 6 out of 10 stars. Fair film for its time. So give it a fair shake.
