Southern set drama about a small town seductive girl named Elsie (Marley shelton),who longs for riches of her own.When she meets buisnessman Rick chambers(Dennis hopper),they begin an affair but Rick is married so the 2 hatch a murderous plan.Elsie is soon to meet Ricks ailing wife Martha(Talia shire) who confides in her that she thinks Rick is trying to kill her.There is then a twist in events when wife & mistress team up & decide to kill Rick instead,only there is yet another twist in store..
I wont ruin the 'other twist' though it is pretty obvious! Right from the part where we learn that his wife has a weak heart to the part where both women plot to kill the husband,i was thinking that it all seemed pretty familiar & then when they drown the husband i remembered- its 'Les diaboliques'! This isnt as good though,infact i was pretty disappointed.After seeing a trailer for it,i thought it looked pretty good but it is actually pretty slow & dull! The worst part is the last half an hour which is set in the courtroom,it drags on & on- i was almost ready to run it forward & if it wasnt for Marley shelton starring,i doubt i would of even watched the movie that far!
