SUMMARY: What begins as an innocent romance turns to deadly obsession when a charismatic young man sets his sights on Nicole Walker, a 16-year-old girl who always dreamed of being swept away by someone special --someone who was strong and sensitive and cared for her more than anything else in the world. At first Nicole is mesmerized by David, a polite, respectful--yet sexy--charmer she meets at a rave party, having slipped out for a wild night with her thrill-seeking best friend Margo. But then Nicole catches a glimpse of David's dark side, and her dream becomes a nightmare. When she tries to break free, her family is forced to draw together in order to confront David's determined, vicious attempts to take her back.
MY THOUGHTS: Such a great movie. Probably my favorite Mark Wahlberg movie. It's the only film I have really seen him be his strongest in a film. He really scares me in this. I guess its how he easily pulled off the "Jekyll and Hide" persona. The movie is very creepy, unnerving, it is scary, violent, gory and just really disturbing. All good factors for a good suspense movie. Reese and Mark had really good chemistry. Their relationship was believable and you really need that to make a good movie. Watch this if you haven't yet. Probably one of the better movies of the 90's.
