Storyline

Emma is an attractive girl in her 20s who has been blind for 20 years. A new type of eye operation partially restores her sight, but she is having problems: sometimes she doesn't "remember" what she's seen until later. One night she is awakened by a commotion upstairs. Peering out of her door, she sees a shadowy figure descending the stairs. Convinced that her neighbour has been murdered she approaches the police, only to find that she is unsure if it was just her new eyes playing tricks on her. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Trivia

The lines quoted by Hallstrom 'For the soul is dead that slumbers,/ And things are not what they seem.' are from A Psalm of Life by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882) and was first published in the Knickerbocker Magazine in October 1838. See more »

Goofs

Emma's dog, Ralph, is a trained guide dog. These animals are trained to focus on assisting their owners, specifically to ignore distractions in their environment and to obey their masters instantly. Yet Ralph barks when Emma walks down the stairs, he pulls away from her in the car park to investigate something and he chases the man ignoring Emma's calls to come back. These behaviours are totally out of character for a guide dog. See more »

Quotes

Watching this movie
10 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, I have not seen the movie all the way through, but what I watched I liked. I am a bartender so I work late. I came home to find it on the television. So, I got on IMDb to find out what movie it was and low and behold, this is it. I was reading the summary and I don't know if this counts for much, but someone wrote that she was a cellist. Sadly, whomever that was needs to visit a music class because the violin is a far thing from the cello. But to continue, from what I watched, I was caught up in this movie. Someone commented that this was not a "thriller" but it definitely was for me. I am a woman and live alone with a dog and from the time she hears the noise upstairs to the next morning, when she has the flashback of the man in her apartment, well, it really scared the crap out of me. I normally don't get scared at movies but this one definitely got my heart rate up and I could hardly get to sleep. So, I will be heading to Blockbuster, when I can find someone to spend the night, to finish watching this thriller, even if it is so only to me.
