Unable, to save her sister from falling off a high cliff, Carla develops a crippling fear ofheights. She also starts to have visions of her sister stalking her. Sister, it seems, wants Carla tojoin her in death. Carla joins a therapy group, hoping to overcome her fears. While she makessome progress, the members of the group start being killed off one by one. There are someeffectively vertiginous moments here, and some okay spookiness, but the film is torpedoed by anending s… moronic and predictable that, frankly, if you don’t see it coming from the openingscene on, you really have to get out more.
The sound okay, though the dialogue distorts on several occasions, and the 2.0 mix doesn’tdo much by way of surround. Even the music is pretty low key, though there are a few goodmoments (emphasis on “few”). The left-right separation isn’t bad, and is used to greater effectthan the rear speakers.
The picture is fullscreen, which is, according to the case, modified from the original. Theclosing credits, however, are a dead giveaway of the flick’s TV origins (not to mention the very,very PG nature of the violence). So if cropping took place, it wasn’t severe. The picture isextremely sharp, with nice colours, blacks and contrasts.
Nothing at all. As bare bones as you can possibly get.
This might have been a not-bad little ghost story, but is ruined by its ending. And the disc isso minimal in its features that it hardly justifies the DVD format.
