YVES SIMONEAU

Bil’s rating (out of 5):  BB.5.  USA, 1994.  Miramax, CBS Productions.  Screenplay by , , based on the novel by .  Cinematography by .  Produced by , , .  Music by .  Production Design by .  Costume Design by , .  Film Editing by .  

Ridiculous, gynophobic thriller about a family being terrorized by a jealous ex-wife and mother (). Good dad  is trying to get on with his life following his turbulent divorce, almost succeeding in a relationship with new flame . Unfortunately, Curtis wants her family back after having abandoned it years before, and her obvious mental instability gives her no reason to stop at anything to get what she wants. There are some suspenseful moments, but the main plot that this film hinges on is too ludicrous to be swallowed. It tries for stylish but it’s mostly just tacky.
