Not bad at all for an indie thriller

"As I never expect a lot from indie thrillers, this one was far better than I thought. Although the twists and turns were not quite unpredictable, they still got you some way or another. Also, enjoy a good performance (and some real nice body shots) given by Nastassja Kinsky if you're a fan of hers. To me Nastassja looked much better with age and she really mastered the sex scenes when needed. Josh Holloway (playing the psycho depressed hunk) was fine too. I would give this movie 5 stars if they cast someone more convincing (like William H. Macy) in the place of Jeff Fahey. But, as I said, I never expect a lot...."
Cold Heart is Great Entertainment

"I really liked this movie. Even with Jeff Fahey looking ill and somewhat seedy. I'm not sure what that's about but don't count on him for the interest. He's necessary to the plot! Natassja Kinski is beautiful as always and sexy to the nth degree. The real eye candy in this film is this young man, Josh Holloway. Money bones with the square jaw and chin, and dimples you could fall into. I've never seen him before so it was a real treat for me. True, the story is pretty predictable. The erotic scenes between Kinski & Holloway are very intense. Great chemistry here. To me, Holloway was the most impressive in his role. He does a great job of portraying a psycho who is used by the good psychiatrist Fahey who tries to manipulate him into killing his wife for her money. You love and hate this psycho all within a matter of minutes. But I think it is primarily because this movie depicts him being used and abused by the doctor/husband and you feel sorry for him. Holloway has a real talent for conveying anything and everything with just a look. Just pure entertainment. I think you'll enjoy it."
Hot Guy But Cold Plot

"Josh Holloway is smoking in this film done before he made a splash in the hit series Lost. But the plot to this movie is predictable and not exectued well. The love scene between Josh and Nastasia Kinski (or her body double) is very hot, and the acting is good on all accounts. It's worth a look if you like any of the stars in it."
My Wife Thinks I'm Trying to Run Off With Hudson Leick...

"Okay, so I'm hooked. I just don't get enough performances out of my fave star.It's just not my fault. This quirky film treats us to some new twists of some old games. Did somebody say "Murder?" Even the missus liked this psychological thriller (she always likes films where the protagonist is slowly driven insane). Jeff Fahey (the Lawnmower Man himself) and Nastassia Kinski (Cat People)also deliver the goods. Hey, I think I'll go re-watch my DVD right now."
