Quotes

Eve Abergray: We had a fight. A horrible, horrible fight.
Ann Hecker: A physical fight?
Eve Abergray: He started torturing me. Bring me close and stopping and bring me close again. And then he stopped. And took his necktie and tied my hands together in front of me. He had a rope, which he'd strung over a rafter. And he put a chair under it and ordered me to stand on it. There's a noose on the rope, and... he... told me to put my neck into it. He took a polaroid of me. And the flash blinded me. But when I could see again he was behind...

An underrated compelling and sexy thriller
22 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

I think this movie was incredibly underrated. I thought there were many standout performances..Annabella Sciorra, Deborah Unger and Jamie Sheridan amongst others. Annabella Sciorra gives a beautifully sensitive performance. If you liked her in The Hand That Rocks The Cradle you will love her in this film. Deborah Unger is absolutely mesmerizing in her role. Her best performance ever. Jamie Sheridan is very credible as the romantic yet mysterious male lead. I thought it was beautifully directed and worked very well on many levels...suspenseful, sexy, dramatic. I thought the ending was totally unpredictable. For a 'small' film that most people have never heard of I think it was fantastic and would highly recommend it. I can never go past it when it is on cable. Must have seen in at least 15-20 times. Check it out!
