Trivia

Thekla Reuten was still breast feeding her second son during the shooting. On opening night she told the audience "if it is feasible to combine that with this film, then breast feeding can be combined with every job". See more »

Goofs

When Marion telephones Kieran in Scotland she only enters a 5 digit number. To make a call from the US to the UK it would entail entering country and area codes in addition to the number. See more »

Better Than Expected
26 September 2020 | by oaklepSee all my reviews

A similar premise to The Medusa Touch (1978) this had enough twists and turns to keep me guessing. I enjoyed the fact that the cast is unknown to me, rather than rolling out the same old faces. Entertaining, well-acted and compelling.
