What lies beneath? Apparently an old script of Fatal Attraction, as the spirit of a woman scorned goes bump in the night all over Harrison Ford and Michelle Pfeiffer's seemingly perfect marriage. But this ain't no copycat thriller; director Robert Zemeckis channels enough Alfred Hitchcock-style intrigue to make this tale of terror tempting. Pfeiffer, it seems, is getting visits from an unwelcome and upset spectre (actually it's supermodel Amber Valletta).
Of course, nobody believes her when she says she's getting spooked. (And it doesn't help that, à la Rear Window, she also suspects her neighbor of offing his wife.) Despite the fact Pfeiffer and Ford's chemistry barely makes a spark, some of the foreshadowing is too apparent and the plot is silly at times, the weaknesses are easily forgiven, as Zemeckis keeps things taut for edge-of-your-seat excitement until all is dead and done.
