Originally produced for TV, and was intended to be the first of a "Wes Craven Presents" series that would have a new horror/suspense TV movie every Halloween. Dismal ratings and reviews sank the series idea. See more »

Megan Ward is excellent, the movie is paranoid but predictable.
Megan Ward is a fantastic actress and is underutilized in Hollywood in general. Wes Craven is a great writer, although he is instead credited as executive producer here. Maybe this movie helped those with acrophobia I don't know. I figured out the entire plot in the first 5 minutes of the movie. Watching the rest of it to see the pieces fall into place was, unfortunately, boring. There was a cute reference to Megan's 1st movie "Crash and Burn". And the character of Dr. Paul Sadowski appears to be named after the associate producer Peter Sadowski? Most of the scenes competently conveyed the overall sense of fear and paranoia, they just were not all that scary. Anyway not too bad for a TV thriller I guess, just way to predictable.
