      Audience Member Aside from a few funny moments with McGowen's unbalanced character, this flick offers nothing new to the Fatal Attraction-like genre. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Finally selling this DVD tho almost kept it after rewatching last night. It's a pretty awful movie, but Rose McGowan is on point. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 07/29/17 Full Review Audience Member Sexy , seductive role . Perfect for Rose McGowan . Neo Noir roots . McGowan is great as a sexy femme fatale . Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member 1.5/5.0 stars - Grade: D+ Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member It's hard to enjoy a movie if the main character was made to be extremely hated. It's not a good sign when you're already rooting for her death within the first act. It's disgusting, stupid, and a complete waste of time. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member A fairly decent psychological thriller that sometimes felt like it rather wanted to be an erotic thriller. I really enjoyed Rose McGowan's performance and she's truly the saving grace here as I likely would've hated this movie had she not starred in it. The story is predictable and has been done to death. This movie did have some cool kills and the 90's style was pretty awesome to see. I did find the directing style weird and amateuristic. I was hoping for more horror elements, but it was fun seeing Rose chew the scenery and she had some witty one-liners. It's one of those 'leave your brains at the door' movies and just hope you'll be entertained by what you see. At some point I couldn't take it seriously anymore to be honest. It's just above average, but that's mostly due to Rose's likeability in this movie. The rest is pretty standard stuff for a Direct to Video thriller. There's also a sequel starring Jodi Lyn O'Keefe (Halloween H2O), but I'm not sure if I should bother watching that. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Christopher Null Filmcritic.com Rated: 2/5 Sep 10, 2005 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews It never overcomes its baseness. Rated: D Mar 5, 2004 Full Review Scott Weinberg eFilmCritic.com As bad as the movie gets (which, to be fair, isn't THAT bad), Rose McGowan holds it together on at least a 'watchability' level. 'Believability' is another story. Rated: 2/5 Oct 21, 2003 Full Review Read all reviews
