Storyline

Catherine meets Nick by accident and, after a whirlwind romance, the two get married and Catherine moves into Nick's apartment only that's the start of problems when an unseen intruder begins playing strange mind games with Catherine in an apparent attempt to drive her insane. Catherine first suspects Nick is behind it, then suspicion moves to his business partner Badge, then to Nick's friends, until Catherine suspects that Nick's first wife Stella, who commited suicide years before, may be behind the occurrences which she may be committing from either beyond the grave, or by a time vortex within the apartment itself which may have let to her suicide in the first place.

Fairly Good Film, Fairly Bad Sound Quality
11 August 2000 | by pawprivateSee all my reviews

This film is yet another example of the less than adequate sound quality in many imports. This film has dialogue that counts, it deserves theatrical level sound - not the shoddy system that is all too common in Two Left Feet Corp. imports. There is a nice streak of relativistic sci-fi, and as in Event Horizon et al - it's amazing how all arguments about relativistic time can be solved by folding a piece of paper! If Only! The acting is reasonable - except for the worst impression of a lawyer I have ever seen! I think that this guy had the script in his lap! Oh Well - if nothing else on the shelf grabs you - this is worth the rent - but rental ONLY!
