Plot Summary

A small, seemingly innocuous plastic reel of film leads surveillance specialist Tom Welles down an increasingly dark and frightening path. With the help of the streetwise Max, Welles relentlessly follows a bizarre trail of evidence to determine the fate of a complete stranger. As his work turns into obsession, he drifts farther and farther away from his wife, family and simple life as a small-town private eye. Written by Columbia Pictures

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia The actress (Jenny Powell) playing the character of Mary Ann Mathews was originally a stripper hired to act as a stand-in. Joel Schumacher gave her the part of the victim on the 8mm film as she had a suitably "haunted" look about her. See more »
Goofs When Dino says to Machine to hold down Tom Welles in the storage, Machine takes at the same time a knife in his (left) hand, but in the following scene, when Tom resists and shouts at Dino, we see once again Machine taking a knife from the table, in order to threaten Tom again. See more »
