A beautiful but reserved criminal psychiatrist must deal with the obsessive stalking of a dangerous killer in this erotically charged thriller. The film's central tension emerges from the relationship between Dr. Sarah Taylor (Rebecca DeMornay), a highly professional psychologist, and a handsome stranger, Tony Ramirez (Antonio Banderas). After randomly encountering Tony in a supermarket, the normally aloof Sarah lets her guard down and embarks on a passionate sexual affair with the Latino charmer. Soon afterward, however, Sarah receives a series of disturbing threats from an unknown stalker. Her suspicions immediately fall on Tony, as she realizes how little she knows about her new lover. Her fear throws a shadow over their relationship, and her doubts increase as she learns more about Tony's dangerous past. Director Peter J. Hall maintains a fast pace and attempts to keep audiences guessing, introducing additional suspects from an imprisoned serial killer (Harry Dean Stanton) to the next-door neighbor (Dennis Miller). The characters rarely transcend standard thriller types, and the uneven screenplay does not have a satisfying ending, but the chemistry between DeMornay and Banderas may keep their fans interested along the way.

Good plot, Rebecca and Antonio steam up the screen, lots of sparks there. He's most of our fantasies (with the hair)with that and all of Rebecca's problems,its really good. Good ending nothing you would expect. Even though the movie is not a new release, you may have viewed the cut version on TV. It is still a nice addition to ones collection. And Hunky Dennis Miller makes his appearance too.

I really liked the whole movie,really good.I thought Rebecca Demornay was outstanding. It takes alot of skill and intelligence to play a role like she played.She has great range as shown in this performance.The soundtrack was good, even though I normally like to rock.See the movie for yourself, I think Rebecca DeMornay is the best.
