Movie Info

Infatuated with the idea of becoming rich, college student Jonathan Corliss (Matt Dillon) secretly dates Dorothy Carlsson (Sean Young) to gain the approval of her wealthy father (Max von Sydow). When Dorothy tells Jonathan that she is pregnant and that her father will deny her inheritance if he finds out, Jonathan murders her, but he stages her death as a suicide. As Jonathan works his way onto Mr. Carlsson's payroll, Dorothy's twin sister, Ellen, investigates the apparent suicide.

Audience Reviews for A Kiss Before Dying

  • Sep 14, 2009
    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.

    Where the F is the 1956 version? Forget this. I'll pretend like this is that one. How can a movie not be on Flixter when it has Oscar winners in it AND its obligatory crappy 90's remake is here? Whatever.

    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.
