Trivia

The second time Sharon Stone and Ronny Cox star together in a movie, the first one being in "Total Recall." See more »

Goofs

Supposedly taking place in Chicago (though there's no attempt to give even the barest hint of it being in Chicago -- the apartment building is very LA), but the sloppiness gets very evident when you see the (213) Los Angeles area code on the toy building across from the insane apartment she ends up in (Chicago's area code is 312).

Alternate Versions

In Britain 11 seconds were cut from the video version by the British censors to edit shots of Angie being punched and her clothes torn during the elevator assault scene. The 2002 Hollywood DVD is uncut. See more »

Scissors
5 December 2007 | by jonas-millerSee all my reviews

You can already tell from the rating I gave this movie that it's excellent. The reason why it's so good is because you have to consider the genre of the movie (in this case a thriller).

This thriller is seriously worth your time and is one of those masterpieces that are overshadowed by lesser thrillers with lots of marketing dollars & hype to make up for the lack of great content.

Don't underestimate this movie and don't underestimate Sharon Stone. I'll guarantee you'll see her in a different light after. She is truly a gifted actress and in this movie you'll come to appreciate her talents. This movie has all the ingredients of a stone cold thriller so don't rob yourself of this experience. I'm not gonna say anything about the plot all I can say is watch it!
