Short and Simple Review by WubsTheFadger For a film that was released in 1997, it has held up extremely well. The story is simple but has some very complex foreshadowing and a vast amount of symbols. The ending is shocking and left me stunned. The acting is the one thing that is outdated. John Travolta, Piper Laurie, and Betty Buckley are e few of the actors that performed in an outdated fashion. William Katt performs very well though. Sissy Spacek is the best part about the entire film. Her character has been tormented with hatred and animosity for no apparent reason and we can clearly see that in her performance. Spacek does her character justice and shows us that old films can be great. The music is another high point for this film. The pacing is very slow in the beginning and in the middle but it picks up speed towards the third act. Pros: Simple yet complex story riddled with foreshadowing and symbols, William Katt's performance, great use of music, amazing ending, Sissy Spacek's performance, and seeing Sissy Spacek naked Cons: A lot of outdated acting and very slow pacing in the beginning and in the middle Overall Rating: 8.4
