Synopsis
The feature directorial debut of Lamberto Bava (son of Italian horror legend Mario Bava), tells the twisted tale of a New Orleans wife whose fragile sanity is about to be shattered. Jane (Bernice Stegers) is swept up in a torrid affair when she leaves her two children home alone as she dashes out to rendezvous with her lover Fred on the other side of town. When Jane's bitterly jealous daughter Lucy (Veronica Zinny) uncovers evidence of her mother's infidelity, she decides to punish the misdeed by drowning her brother in a bathtub. Upon receiving news of the incident, Jane races home and gets into an automobile accident that proves the end of her lover, and leads to an extended stint in a local asylum for the devastated mother. Released a year later, Jane rents an apartment owned by blind landlord Robert. But why is Jane's freezer always locked up so tight, and just what emotional sway does the malevolent Lucy hold over her psychologically vulnerable mother? As the mystery deepens, it soon becomes apparent that Jane has lost all touch with reality, and that even in death she's not willing to let go of her lover. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Let's face it, they can be scary...and not just because of unsightly bathtub rings.
