It took Stephen's wife several days to shake the image of this movie out of her mind. For her it was disturbing, and yet strangely compelling. I would have to say that this is true on both counts, but where we as reviewers go with this movie is to remark mainly on it's message, its cleverness... its versatility and unpredictability as movies go.
