Much of the film rests on the shoulders of Conrad Pla who plays Raymond Pope. He is the focus of the movie and proves himself an excellent leading man.

A handsome package whose atmospherics outclass merely serviceable plot and character elements.

Fairly sexy and stylish. Alas, it's also quite silly and not especially scary.
