Whispers in the Dark | 1992 | R | - 8.7.6

Annabella Sciorra stars as a psychiatrist who becomes psychologically involved with one of her patients, a sensual blonde who insists on relating her sexual escapades -- which involve bondage. Then the blonde is found strangled.

SEX/NUDITY 8 - Total female nudity. The opening scene depicts a foggy dream-like sexual encounter. Side view of a nude woman hanging by the neck. Police photos of women's bodies after having been beaten and abused. Sexual fantasies and obsessions are a major theme, especially depictions of bondage.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - 5 violent deaths. One man falls out of a window; we hear the crash as he lands on the roof of a car, and we see the results with his twisted body laying in a pool of blood. A woman shown hanging by the neck. A man stabbed in the chest, and a man axed in the head. Most of the scenes of violence are shown after the fact.

LANGUAGE 6 - F-word and lots of detailed descriptions of sexual acts and fantasies. Very explicit, sexually-oriented language used throughout.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
