    Bad. Very, very bad. Terrible sound quality & editing. Cliche characters. Bad acting. Soundtrack is that of a 1970s porno. Absurd plot. Must be why Sharon Stone's career died.

    Few movies this divided. Clearly, this is a B level production with sub-par acting, for the most part. Even so, there are redeeming qualities here that save some face. The story takes a long time to kick into gear, but it turns into an interesting and darkly ironic story. Some of the audio dubbing is extremely bad, which unfortunately robs the feeling of important scenes and cheapens it. That is too bad, because some of the camerawork in the later part of the movie is actually decent. The pace putters along but late in the movie the tone completely shifts. It takes obnoxiously bold post-modern interior design and cameras and music slowly shift to an uneasy feeling then building until it becomes altogether unnerving. The director takes a number of cues from Alfred Hitchcock in the climatic scenes, and they are surprisingly good. Luckily, the main two parts played by a young Sharon Stone and Ronny Cox are not terrible, and the story is enough to keep it from failing.

    Good storyline and an ending that I never expected. I also love watching Sharon Stone act in movies :)

    There are some interesting concepts, but overall it is one of the most ridiculous films I haven't seen in a while.

    If it weren't for the scenes in that creepy ass apartment this movie would've been plain boring. A lot of WTF moments, unintentional laughs, predictable but kept me interested enough to keep watching. Ronny Cox, as always, is delightful.

    To really show the full extent of the wtf-ness of this movie, I would've had to have live blogged it. Then again, all of the entries would've said the same thing: Sharon Stone is the worst actress ever. And to answer your unspoken question, yes. She does have a pointless boob-showing scene. And to answer your other unspoken question, yes. A creepy pig hand puppet has major significance to the plot. And to answer your final unspoken question, yes. This is my new favorite movie.

    I've been waiting to watch this movie for very long time. I remembered watching it twice many years ago and it terrified me both times. This is what suspense all about. Its strange that the movie had low rating and forgettable while to me this is one of the most thrilling psychological thriller ever that you cant anymore nowadays. Some people with certain phobia will find this movie disturbing. I wont spoiled exactly what kind of phobia, because I didnt like giving away the best part. Sharon Stone was amazing in this one. We could see that she actually had lots of potential, and her performance was better than some Oscar winners. She starred as Angela Anderson, a very damaged young woman, who had traumatize past that even though she didnt remember but still affected her psychologically. Her most terrifying moment started when some guy tried to rape her at the elevator. Unfortunately, thats not the end of her bad luck. Not only he got away, she had to deal with new traumatic event, while still dealing with her past. The supporting cast also did great job, most of them were unknown (to me), and the twist near the end helped the movie to be in the same level with other classic thriller/suspense. There were no cheesy, Hollywood type of ending. To me, it ended perfectly. I hope one day, they will release this on DVD, so many people would have a changed to see this one by themselves. If you're a fan of the movie like The Vanishing (the original one), you'll probably will like this one as well
