Melanie admits at the the end of the film all of her earlier actions were an act to get revenge, but in several of the scenes she was alone, panicking, and talking to herself about how to escape and survive. She also thought up an escape plan, which very nearly succeeded, by contacting a waiting plane in order to leave the island. None of this makes sense if she was only pretending the entire time.
Melanie was recording herself so she could use it later to manipulate Sloane, that's why she kept up the act the whole time. See more »

I loved the tv show but knew this was a horror so knew it wouldn't bethe same. There was always the possibility of the fantasy not playing out as planned and being killed in the tv show, but obviously that was never the case for a family show back then.
So, to show the dark side interested me. I thought the fantasies worked well and actually enjoyed how they come together. Rourke was very like the original.
Yes, there are sime holes in the story and the last line is so corny but I now have it in my collection to watch again.
