      Michelle Pfeiffer is really good at playing the fragile, frazzled housewife in this movie. What I didn’t understand was how a car accident could have left her internally traumatized.

      She seemed as if she’d fall apart at the mere


      mention of the accident.

      It isn’t until later in the film that you realize the true cause of her skittishness, which ultimately has NOTHING to do with the car accident itself.

      What I liked about What Lies Beneath, is the “whiteness” of the imagery.

      The scenery is ...


      • very bright.

        And there is a lot of white in the wardrobe and set design as well.

        As a matter of fact, whenever I think of the film, this is what comes to mind.

        I think that this is very important when planning how a film is

        supposed to look onscreen.

        I also think the director may have done this in order to contrast the dark nature of the film.

        The extreme “whiteness” contributes to the creepiness.

        This is a ghost story with a strange twist.

        Not completely enthralling, but more entertaining than entertaining.
