The last exterior in the film was to take place in a dream sequence. It was to be the big digital effects sequence where Trevor escapes from the house in a dream, finding himself on a street where every house is identical to the last detail. Kasten was sure he could shoot it and add minimal effects in wide shots, but only if they could find a street where the houses were almost completely the same, a street with no cars and no trees. Though the producers tried to find such a street, the task became practically impossible and the filmmakers were close to abandoning the scene altogether. At the last minute a call to an airforce base turned up a deserted military housing community. See more »
Near the end when Trevor and Faith are making love, you can see the actor is wearing a flesh-tone g-string. As they are sitting and talking in the follow scene, you can see the "string" part on his hips. See more »
Trevor, you got to get me out of here, I don't know what's happening to me. I can't tell you who I am because my can't remember a damn thing. My mind is all fucked up in this damn puppet head, but I swear to you as God is my witness, I am not this guy's hand!

Promising in some ways. It looks like it might go somewhere - until the last half hour, which becomes increasingly unpleasant and confusing, climaxing in an arrogant or incompetent refusal to explain and fill in the loose ends. The performances and photography are quite competent. Unfortunately, it all collapses like a schizoid house of cards at the end. When it works, it feels like a combination of Suspiria and Jacob's Ladder.
