What Lies Beneath

WhatLiesBeneathThis star driven thriller, directed by Robert Zemeckis, pair two of Hollywood’s best actors, Harrison Ford and Michelle Pfieffer, in the lead roles of a married couple, Norman and Claire Spencer, who find their home empty as their daughter Caitlin leaves for school.

Memories of a car crash, beliefs in the supernatural, and some questionable activity from their neighbors fuel a slowly building plot that strains the Spencer’s relationship.

Notice the way each character displays their traits and how the plot addresses their credibility as situations progress into some intriguing results.

Some attempts at thrills produce mixed results, but some clever plot twists strengthen the film.  Pfieffer’s great role as Claire showcases her underrated talents that haven’t been fully used in her most recent films near this quality film’s release.

This film does for bathtubs what Psycho did for showers.  Great mature entertainment that’s recommended (*** out of four stars) and rated PG-13 for violence, sensuality, and some language.
