Jed said Tracey's blood group was AB negative. He would need to get donors in that type. In fact she could have been given any Rh negative blood type. Group O, A or B would be suitable for someone who is group AB (universal recipient). Only the Rh type (positive or negative) is important and then only to woman of child-bearing age. See more »
Bad things happen to good people all the time, Andy, for no reason what-so-ever...

This is one of the greatest mysteries of the past decade. It is, no question, the kind of movie that Hitchcock would be making today. Yes, there are flaws in some of the details, but nothing too major. The plot is still brilliant, the pacing perfect, and the characters lively. Especially Alec Baldwin who give the movie its spark, playing an egocentric doctor with a god complex. The best thing about this movie is the way that it unleashes a mystery, little by little, and lets it unfold into something tremendous. Intelligence is all over this script. Everything is done for a reason and great writing here, (by the screenwriter who wrote A Few Good Men), makes for a terrific movie.
