The movie attempts to top each of its revelations with still another until reason bends and interest flags.

Great trashy fun: Don't drink the cough syrup!

The film's worst elements come from the filmmakers. To say they've seen too many Hitchcock films is to understate.

In its conclusions, this movie is so cynical, so evil, that it would inspire despair were it not so incompetent.

Things get weirder and weirder, until it's clear scriptwriter Wesley Strick's the one who needs analysis.

Far too much of the plot is like that of too many other films with very similar plot twists. Fans of classic thrillers, be warned.

Has so many twists, turns and backward leaps, the actors tackle their work like trained poodles in a circus act.
