  1. A diabolically clever psychological suspense movie.
  2. Laced with a venomous wit, and turning progressively creepier as it unfolds, writer-director Jon Reiss' movie offers a black-humored study of suppressed rage, sexual gamesmanship, domination and subordination.
  3. 50
    This watchable 1998 psychothriller deflects its cliches with canted angles, metonymic cropping, and a creeping pace, making it as much a parsing of "Twilight Zone"-brand irony as an example of it.
  4. 50
    An engagingly grim psychological thriller.
  5. Well acted, but it doesn't enrich its metaphor beyond giving an old story a sour contemporary resonance.
  6. 20
    Reiss guides the film with a firm hand, ratcheting up the tension and ably guiding his actors. It's his protagonists that undo the film, making it a chore to sit through.
