Storyline

Raquel Welch is an author researching a new book, when she comes across the story of a surprising double murder-suicide. A smart, young, athletic high school student adopted by his parents at a young age had killed his well-respected family, then committed suicide. Welch goes on a hunt to discover that the boy's biological mother had been a patient in a mental institution and that the boy is part of a fraternal twin set. His sister had also been adopted, and Welch, fearful of a murderous genetic trait, takes it upon herself to find the sister. Meanwhile, two good friends and neighbors, Wagner and Green, exhibit the type of behavior that leads to believe that one of them is the missing sister. Welch tracks them down and it's only a matter of time to discover which one has the deadly trait. Written by Anonymous

Confusing but great
2 August 2003 | by Georgina1See all my reviews

I first watched this film when I rented it from a local video shop at the tender age of 14 for a sleep over party.

When I was 14 the film made no sense and I was left confused at the end although I enjoyed the suspense and story line. I was left thinking about the end for days.

9 years on and after years of searching for the film to buy I finally have my own copy. I have watched it again and again and again and never tire of the film. Although I am still completely confused at the ending - you really are left wondering, there are so many possibilities of what really happened!

I would recommend this film for a Sunday afternoon when you have nothing to do - I can guarantee you will be thinking about the ending for days. The story itself is interesting and the acting is really quite good - whilst its not a film that is going to win any awards, it certainly kept me interested for an hour or so and was very entertaining.
