Another of umpteen [fill-in-the-blank]-from-hell thrillers
which saturated the genre during the early 1990's.
This particular one focuses on a flatmate from hell, as
Jennifer Jason Leigh's psychopathic character becomes Bridget Fonda's new roommate.
It's all colour-by-numbers plotting, with a few effective
shock moments, but chances are you've seen it all before in various other guises. The only factor which sets this apart from others are the good performances of the two main actresses and
some creative set pieces, particularly the "death by stiletto" moment.
