Revealing mistakes: When she is in the subway car, it is not moving. We hear sounds and see light flash in the background. The subway car in an old non-air conditioned car. The last of these cars were retired several years ago. This car is most likely located at the Brooklyn Transit Museum.

User Review

Gripping right until the end, Then, truly disappointing!

Rating: 4/10

This must be one of Shue's worst yet, While watching the film I was intrigued by the sheer mystery of the film.

I had no idea or could have guessed what the outcome would be...

And then a truly awful ending which ruined what originally had me gripped.

I only voted four because of my original impression of the film(before Isaw the end) Avoid at all costs!!!!!

Story outline - A dancer (shue) finds she is pregnant, her husband , an up and coming businessman moves them out to a big house to raise their child away from the city, While battling her own depression the lonely house starts to eat away at her , causing a large amount of paranoia, or is it?
