NotesHaving the director Neil Jordan (The Crying Game) should bode well but apparently this film didn't do well on release. One hopes it is more than a slasher/horror film. The story involves a young woman whose dreams appear to reveal to her the future but no one believes her (Cassandra's curse). Of course in this type of film dreams only reveal evil. After foreseeing her daughter's death she has a mental breakdown, makes a suicide attempt and is put into a mental hospital. There she has a dream that her husband will be murdered.
