Did You Know?


The manner in which Shadow uses her pinhole camera is incorrect. For example, when she takes the picture of Treasure, she removes the cover from the pinhole and leaves the pinhole uncovered for a much longer period of time than required (correct time is 2-3 seconds vs. the 15-20 seconds "Shadow" leaves the pinhole uncovered). In addition, she leaves the pinhole uncovered until Treasure turns and walks away from her, and only then does she cover the pinhole. When we see that picture later, it is a perfectly developed, non-blurry picture of Treasure standing still, facing Shadow. First, the picture would've been extremely overexposed, quite possibly nothing but dark gray or black. Second, the picture would've been blurry from the fact that Treasure didn't just move, she turned and walked away before the pinhole was closed. See more »

It Exposes What Really Goes On
25 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

The movie "Stranger Inside" was an astonishing movie. Although it had some unclean scenes and scenes that you really didn't feel that was necessary, the writer is exposing what's really going on out in the real world. Scenes from this movie was not fictional, but nonfictional. A lot of us don't like to face the fact that there are lesbians, homosexuals, or however they are labeled out there doing these things and not only in correctional facilities. The writer also exposes why the character "Treasure" came out the way she did. It was because of the absence of her mother and that's some of the problems also, there are absent mothers and fathers that are not with their children and it gives them the idea to do the things they do. I can't go into details, but I honestly think that is an award winning movie that should be exposed to society and let them know what's really going on.
