Audience Reviews for Cassandra

I sought out this film only because it was produced, and its score co-composed, by the Australian musician and music producer Trevor Lucas, who was married to the singer/songwriter Sandy Denny. It's basically your average horror whodunit in which our title heroine gradually discovers her family's twisted past as she attempts to identify the murderer. There are flashbacks, POV shots, and assorted eerie devices, but the movie is wholly unremarkable, including the music. It's an okay film, but I wouldn't suggest you go out of your way to find it.

The editing is the most noteworthy aspect of the film as it is surprisingly effective - several sequences are cut in a very elliptical fashion with time and place becoming blurred as sporadic images of a voyeuristic eye are interjected amongst them . Unfortunately, that is the only thing noteworthy within this derivative thriller that plays out like a knock-off of "The Eyes of Laura Mars" - complete with psychic link to killer, fashion photography, fashion models, roaming POV camera shots, a woman in peril, and giallo-esque murder sequences (which are admittedly effective due to the editing within those sequences). See "The Eyes of Laura Mars" instead, which even isn't that good a film in its own right but sure is better than this one.
