Nightwaves (2003)


Nightwaves (2003)-* *

Directed by: Jim Kaufman

Starring: Sherilyn Fenn













In this paint-by-numbders thriller, which is basically a female version of Rear Window (1954), Sherilyn Fenn stars as Shelby, who loses her husband in a car accident. After his death, she copes by listening to a police scanner. She then overhears a couple arguing. Shelby thinks a innocent woman is dead and following her. Of course nobody believes her.

Nightwaves is very heavy with clich├ęs. Nothing original happens here. Sherilyn Fenn is okay in this, but she is above TV movie of the week material.

The box art is also very misleading. This is not a "Red Shoe Diaries"-type movie.
