After Hedra kills Graham (or rather, thinks she has killed him), she comes back to Allison's apartment, and takes a shower. After the shower, she wraps herself into a large bath towel and goes into her bedroom, where Allison follows her. But, suddenly, about one second after she has entered her room, we discover Hedra wearing a night shirt and a sweater. Apparently Hedra is a better quick-change artist than the world-famous Arturo Brachetti. See more »

So how many kids do we want?
I don't know. What's the statistical norm?

This is a tense thriller about an obsessive woman who becomes too enthralled in someone else's life, and even gets herself mixed up in lies, deceit and other bad activities, and the cycle of problems just gets more momentum. The basic plot is that Allison (Bridget Fonda) gets a roommate for her Manhattan apartment (has anyone ever seen an apartment this large in NYC??) after her skirt-crazy live-in lover Sam (played by "Wings" star Steven Weber) runs around on her. It's Headra "Hedy" (Jennifer Jason Leigh) to the rescue! This is one of my favorite suspense films. The setting is amazing, an old spooky apartment building but a gorgeous sparsely furnished apartment within. There really isn't a lot of violence in this movie, mainly just at the end. It's a good suspense movie, though, which builds and builds. The film is stylish, thanks to Luciano Tovoli (Suspiria) cinematography. Fonda and Leigh give strong performances in this movie. This is an underrated thriller, which is surprisingly clever movie.
Overall rating: 8 out of 10.
