Following a near-death experience in a car accident,  finds himself psychically linked to a disturbed Satan-worshipping teenager () with a similar episode in his past who is now intent on murdering Goldblum’s young daughter ().  Looking inwards to his sixth sense, Goldblum tries desperately to catch the killer before he succeeds in committing his foul crime. Characters are interesting in the first third, particularly with Christine Lahti as Goldblum’s intelligent wife, but an overemphasis on silly graphics and visual effects in the climax takes the film down a few too many levels and leaves you unsatisfied and unimpressed. The same year that Sisto played Silverstone’s attacker, he also played her suitor in Amy Heckerling’s classic Clueless.
