"Undertow" is definitely one of the best thriller and suspense movies I've ever seen. Lou Diamond Phillips stars as Jack, a drifter who crashed in an isolated part of South Carolina. A terrible storm is brewing and he's stuck staying in a cabin with a psychotic man named Lyle (Charles Dance) and Lyle's terror-stricken wife, Willie (Mia Sara). Jack has no other place to go in the approaching hurricane so he has to watch his every step or Lyle might do him in. But Jack also notices that Willie seems to be troubled like she's been abused for many years and he wants to help her.
"Undertow" has good special effects and even a better plot. But what really makes it a great suspense movie is the top notch acting in the movie by all three people, especially Charlie Dance. If you like great suspense movies, I recommend getting "Undertow," you won't be disappointed. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2000. More people should check this one out!
