Never Talk To StrangersBy lonandmia (60 reviews) from Hornchurch , 22 Sep 2009Wow this film could have been so much more, but the parts that were supposed to scare were laughable and the denouement did not ring true. Watch if you are a fan of DeMornay or Banderas as they are good but don't watch for the story
loves it!By a customer from Edinburgh , 27 Aug 2008i remember watching this about 8 years ago and loving it and always wanted to see it again. when i finally did i completely forgot about the twist at the end and ended up loving it even more than i thought i would!
yes, there is some rubbish acting in it but the story is amazing, especially when you find out what really happened.
Compelling, well-made thrillerBy crockery (137 reviews) from Belfast , 14 Mar 2008
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideThough overlooked at the time of it's release, 'Never Talk to Strangers' is a well-crafted thriller centering on the human dilemma of whether or not to trust others. Rebecca De Mornay stars as Dr Sarah Taylor, a psychologist in an unnamed city who has a difficult personal life. She meets the charming Tony Ramirez (Antonio Banderas) in a supermarket and- despite her many fears- is soon drawn into a passionate relationship with him. Soon after meeting Tony, Sarah acquires a stalker who sends her dead flowers and dismembers her pet cat. The audience is provided with a decent list of possible suspects including Tony, Sarah's missing ex-boyfriend Benny, or possibly her slightly sleazy upstairs neighbor (a surprisingly good Dennis Miller). Other possibilities include her alcoholic father, and associates of serial killer Max Cheski (the wonderful Harry Dean Stanton) on whom she is performing a court-ordered psychiatric evaluation.
As the plot unfolds, it appears as if De Mornay's character has nowhere to hide and nobody she can really trust. Various characters appear more or less likely to be guilty of terrorizing her. The film also very deftly portrays Sarah's need for a relationship with Tony even though she is terrified that he is hiding something from her. The acting is top notch and the plot is full of satisfying twists and turns. If you are in the mood for a strong, solid thriller then this ought to be a top choice.
'Never Talk To Strangers'By ian3 (538 reviews) from Salisbury , 02 Jan 2008Very disappointed in this movie. Fans of Mr AB will be pleased as he puts in a fair performance but RDM fans well, shes done better. Sorry to spoil your choice but look elsewhere.
