Two women, one plan. We’ll poison the creep who treats us like dirt, they agree. We’ll dump the body in a murky pool, and someone will find a surprise at the bottom. There’s a surprise, all right. When the pool is drained and cleaned, no body is found.
Sharon Stone and Isabelle Adjani pour on the femme and the fatale in a diabolical grabber of a suspense thriller directed by Jeremiah Chechik (Benny And Joon) and based in part on the classic 1955 French spellbinder Les Diaboliques. Will the women get away with bloody murder? Has someone removed the body of the victim (Chazz Palminteri) and begun playing mind games with them? Add to the mix a tough cookie of a detective (Kathy Bates) and you’ve got the ingredients for a nail-biter from the first scene to the last (Bob Polunsky, Kens-TV/ San Antonio).
