Most unkindly (but amusingly), the 1992 Razzie Awards gave Sean Young both the Worst Actress and Worst Supporting Actress Awards for playing the twins

Matt Dillon is chilling....one of the better erotic thrillers of the 90's

Audience Reviews for A Kiss Before Dying

It feels like a TV movie but it?s really not that bad. Matt Dillon is quite good!

An interesting movie. We know who the bad guy is, but the characters in the movie do not. Ellen can't quite believe that her sister committed suicide, and she continues investigating over a couple of years -- while meeting, falling in love with and marrying the character played by Matt Dillon. It is not quite a whodunit, but a figure-out-who-did-it. I'd like to see the original 1956 version of the movie though.

matt's good but the film provides the questionable advantage of seeing sean young give two absolutlely terrible performances.

This truly risible thriller, a remake of the 1956 film, is rendered even worse by Sean Young who, by playing twins, is doubly dreadful.
