Campus officials at the University of North Carolina refused to agree to allow filming on campus in Chapel Hill, because of the subject matter of the film. Hence the only UNC-Chapel Hill campus scenes are the flyover shots. There is one other scene shot on UNC's campus. After the flyover shot of Duke Chapel, the next scene is the detectives car turning onto Medical Drive in Chapel Hill.This can be seen by the sign behind the tree which is the old School of nursing sign on Columbia street.

[Kate is under hypnosis, reliving her escape from Casanova]
I hear him, whispering.
What does he say?
I can feel his mouth on my ear, his breath. He tells me that he loves me.
Tell me about his face. Tell me about his eyes. His mouth.
[Kate's breathing begins to quicken]
He has no face. A mask! He always wears a mask!
What kind of mask? What does it look like?
[her breathing slows]
It changes. I can't show him that I hate him.
But you escape. What do you see when you escape?
I don't know. ...

Originally, the voice of Casanova was dubbed (though uncredited) by Jeff Kober. In later airings (notably satellite broadcasts), his voice was dubbed by Tony Goldwyn, who also plays Dr. Rudolph (The Gentleman Caller) in the movie. See more »

good story that doesn't fully deliver in the end
Detective Alex Cross is an experienced, astute forensic psychologist. He's brought from D.C. to Durham to aid in the investigation of a slippery criminal mastermind with a track record for abducting young women who are both beautiful and talented. It becomes personal when one of the abductees is his niece, and he enlists local doctor and former victim Kate McTiernan (Judd) who escaped the same perpetrator and is the only living person who can identify him. Stylish, atmospheric, well-crafted thriller holds your interest, with some effective twists and strong performances from Freeman and Judd, but it builds to a climax that doesn't quite payoff. Still, a respectable showing for all those involved. **½
