Sandra F. (Sami) from ST PETERSBURG, FL
Reviewed on 3/9/2010...
This movie was not rated well but I liked it. It had some unexpected twists and some predictable turns. It was a good thriller and deserved more than 2 stars. I gave it 3.5. Sharon Stone is an excellent villain and played the part well. The ending was pretty cool.

Thumbs Up For Diabolique
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Despite criticism that the film is monotonous and boring, I rented the video and was pleasantly surprised. Sharon Stone seems to be getting better every film she does. The chemistry between Stone and Isabelle Adjani is great. Chaz Palminteri is the perfect bad guy and Kathy Bates was a great detective. Listen close, Bates has some of the best lines. I really enjoyed my first viewing. I liked it enough to watch a second and third time!! Big thumbs up to the entire cast for a job well done. I would recommend this movie to anyone."
Stone is Splendid

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Don't listen to those critics who are still so in love with the ancient French version they can't see the merits of this brooding, sexy remake. Yes, the plot has holes (Who shot those crucial photographs?) and a blooper or two (someone who's supposed to be making a U-turn ends up on the same side of the road, heading against traffic). Nonetheless, it's well worth watching for its clever plot, top-rate performers, haunting atmosphere, and most especially the glorious Sharon Stone. She's like a modern day Joan Crawford here: forthright, vampy, alluring, and not to be trifled with!"
A Perfect Masterpiece!!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What a great cast! The sceenery is mystery colored and is accompanied by antique and old-school looking structures. The story line I think is very simple but extremeley complicated at the same time.
Adjani, Palmintery, Bates, Stone, are combined with ploting, scheeming, backstabbing, denial, greed and well, all the goodies! Without giving anything away, each cast mamber has the perfect role and attitude to go with it. If for any reason you dislike the cast, I'm sure this picture will change your mind. This one is definitely a movie you should'nt be without! This is a winner!!!"
