Here's a sure method to guess whodunnit in bad mystery thrillers: pick the suspect most likely to shock the audience and you have the killer.

There's plenty of sex. There's little plot. There's reason to watch something else.

An adequate psychological thriller on a topical theme -- Repressed Memory Syndrome -- but with little special quality, few frills or thrills, and a relaxed, almost languid exposition.

Barely watchable.

The film is rife with unexpected revelations and twists but the filmmakers' sly maneuvering, instead of sucking the audience deeper into this psychological thriller, are apt to make them feel manipulated.

The answer to the mystery was a surprise to me, but I didn't find the answer very convincing.

Even with its sights set this low, the film misfires on every level.

It's mysterious and sexy enough to keep tension alive until, too bad, the whole thing collapses with a twist ending that is nearly laughable.

Reasonably entertaining but largely uninspired.

[Hall] can't triumph over the problems in the script, or tie up all the loose ends, but his brisk, competent approach does minimize the effects of these flaws.
Top Critic

It's an easy-to-watch movie that will be even easier on video, where it should turn up any minute.
| Original Score: 3/5

TV Guide
August 5, 2009
It's basically a direct-to-video erotic thriller blown up to big-screen proportions, but the stars are attractive and it's passably entertaining -- right up to the ridiculous twist ending.
